    Okay here's the deal
    yesterday- I had my top headlights on when on low beam, and the bottom headlights on on high beam-
    today- after replacing 1 of my top lights, due to a real weak bulb..I now have top two on for low beam, and ALL FOUR on for highbeam- is this right? UUGGHHHHHH!

    Yep, if you look closely, the top two bulbs have 3 connectors. 1 for the low beam filament, 1 for the high beam filament and one for ground. The lower two bulbs just have 2 connectors. 1 for the high beam filament and one for ground. When you switch to high beam mode, the top bulbs switch to the high beam filament and the lower bulbs come on also. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
