Question Angel eye bulb replacement

My RH angel eyes stopped working. I watched some Youtube to research how to change the bulb, which is supposed to be a H8.

When I unscrewed the cap for the inner lens and pulled out the bulb, it wasn't what I was expecting. I've attached a photo. Anyone know what it is? It's definitely not a H8.

It's an aftermarket angel eye bulb, likely of the eBay/Amazon variety.

Yes. It's an LED conversion. The original is Halogen.

Its a LED angel eye bulb
I found this pic of one on ebay

The inside of the headlight gets very hot and cheap LEDs simply burn out after a while. Assume this is what happened to yours

Just replace it

If you want quality AE bulbs buy the ones from buvgruppe in the USA
They dont burn out like ebay specials
