Anyone else having this problem? I have replaced my headlamps 3 times since i have owned my 06 Spectra5. I know i can not be putting them in wrong. I'm using Sylvania 9003 bulbs with bulb grease. Could it possibly be a bad harness? Any insight would be nice because it is a pain in my rear end.:mad:

You do know your not to touch the glass part of the bulb? Have you asked what the warranty is on the bulbs you bought?

Yeah I know. I wear gloves anyway even if I did touch the bulb. and no, they seem to go out after 6-8 months on the dot. but i tried finding any warranty info before and was not successful.

I don't think they last like they used too. The days of going years in between changes have gone. And it's not just Kia, My Hyundai does as well. A friend of mine has a Honda Element, same problem. And it's not consistent across all vehicles of the same model either. Just weird I tell ya.
