Re: H7 High Beam?

I cut the tabs on the metal sleeve and cut the metal ring off of the H7 bulb to get the bulb in and have gotten it to fit. I also ran the ground from the high beam to the low beam ground since there is no factory ground on the high beam. The problem I'm seeing is that the high beam flashes on when I hit the switch but does not stay on. Any ideas are greatly appreciated here. Thanks.
You were right, the vendor is wrong, wrong, wrong. Too bad you messed with it, could have sent it back. Now just get an H3 and be done with it. Let the vendor know how wrong he was so he does not screw someone else!
