There'* no way 100w will work in low beams. Atleast not a bulb that actually does 100w.

There'* a reason brand names bulbs cost more then $3, it'* cuz they work.

Philips, Osram/Sylvania, piaa, GE, stick with the brand names.

who gives a **** what bulbs you have. if there is moisture IN your headlight like you mentioned before you aren't going to be able to see ****, no matter what bulb you put into the headlight.

You need to get the headlights dryed out and clean(on the inside) and resealed so it doesn't happen again, before you do anything else.

Just a small flatblade screwdriver will do the trick. There are 2 on the top, one on the bottom.
