I have a buddy driving home in his 05 passat wagon he just bought.
It keeps popping head light fuses, anyone know what amp fuse this takes??

So I have a little more info.
The fuses he is replacing is 5 amps.
The headlights are aftermarket, projectors.

So I guess there was a five in the low spot which poped and melted, so he put in the 10 that lasted 3 hrs.
So I told him to put in the 15 for the low and 10 for the high. Hope that will work.

Also he was saying that the wires off the headlights looked new.

The owners manual is stuffed in a compartment below the steering column...
I would say the fuses are not failing, they are perfoming as designed.
