First thing you have to do is establish if you actually have power at the lamp holder but before I can help further I need you to give me the two digit number that comes after the HB75AB550B/.. as there are a number of variations of that model ~ Ian

Thank You - copy and paste this link into you browser ~ spare parts list page 3.item 0337 which is the lamp holder. As you can see at the rear it has two electrical connectors. You have to find out if you have actually got power there as quite often the lamp holder is damaged when the lamp explodes. You will need a mains tester or multimeter to do this.
