Nissan Skyline GT-R : R32 Headlight Differences, and Other Light Bulbs

Headlight Differences. Early, Late, and N1
Early Projector Headlights
Early Projectors (raised rings around the projector and main beam)
Sidemarker : T10/501
Projector : H3c
High Beam : H3

Have you changed your headlight bulbs and they still don't work?  With a 25-30 year old car you will find the weak points. On the R32s, the headlight switch contacts, and headlight power routing are a bit dodgy to put it best.  You may have a car that low beams both work, and one high beam wont. Or one low beam is out, and all the rest work. 

This is often just the switch or connector. After you have verified the bulb is ok, next route is to head to the switch. Two possibles on the switch, the contacts, or the connector being burned. If the connector is burned Supertec racing sells a replacement for £40.00.
