There are so many Chinky makes it is unreal, most use a wire ended capless 5w bulb but it is near impossible to know.

You need to remove the bulb to identify it but I would put that poor effect down to a bad design/manufacturer.

That sounds like a 501 so try a 501 LED replacement which will be brighter and not get hot. You will have to take car with the bulbs length.

I have similar lights in my Bora you may find it each headlight needs 4 of the 501 buls all in a N,S, E, W position. I swapped mine out for cree led bulbs, a bit more expensive than standard led but 10 X better as the whole ring lights up.
