Dim headlight

My l//s lowbeam is dim . I suspect a poor ground, but don't know where it comes from. The beam looks like he is cocked to one side but everything seems ok on high beam??
Any thoughts n help?
My 986 is a 2000 l/h drive.It has hei hi beams and I 've replaced the bulb
But no change. It's got me.
Thank you, Rick

Ground is common...

So, if "city light" ok and high beam ok, maybe wrong bulb replaced... did u do fog instead? Bulbs (H7 IIRC) are same and easily confused in housing...

Help us help you by posting pic of vehicle running w/ following:

- low beams w fog lights on too
- high beam on


"Cool Prius!"
