Arrow How-To: Installing Bi-Xenons W/ Relay Harness (Stock Headlights)

How-To: Install HID Bi-Xenons Into Stock Headlights W/ Relay Harness

[IMG]http://*************/gallery/files/3/1/9/0/sl383250.jpg[/IMG]



9007 10,000k Bi-Xenon kit Bought From www.BuyHIDs.com - #1 Plug-N-Play Xenon HID Kits

Tools Required:
-------------------

10mm Socket
Socket Wrench
3/4 Extension

REMOVE YOUR DAY TIME RUNNING LIGHT FUSE!! - Failure to do so may void warrenty!

Step 1: Remove the 4 top bolts that hold the headlights and bracket in place & the 3 Push clips on the grill.

Step 2: Pull headlight out from the outside as shown. Takes some wiggling but it will come out

Step 3: Remove the 2 lower bolts that hold the bracket in place.

Step 4: Remove the headlight bracket by wiggling it out.

Step 5: Mount your ballast under the headlight bracket as shown. Double sided tape works best. If your in the colder states heat the area up with a hair dryer before hand to help it stick. Mines been there for 1+ years without issue.

Step 6: Here is a diagram of the Relay harness. It looks complex but its very simple.

Step 7: Now take your relay Harness and wire the (+) Wire to the (+) post in the fuse box. The post just twist off. Install wire and tighten post back down.

Step 8: Take the (-) wire and connect to to the bolt on the fendor. 10mm socket works.

Step 9: Now run the wire for the passanger side (longest wire from relay harness) with the wires that run across the front beam of the car. Below is a picture and the red line is the "wire".

Step 10: Now Take your Blue connector harness. Blue connector plugs into stock harness. The Male plug is not used on the passanger side, while the driver side it connects to the female connector on the relay harness. Refer to the relay harness diagram above to see what the connector looks like. The smallest wires connect together and the 2 plugs also connect together as shown below.

Now put everything back together, bolt it down and you now have Bi-Xenon HID kit installed into your ride.



*Thanks Dman090 for letting me use your pic without asking

Mike, sorry but I need a quick refresher. What does the Bi mean? Does it mean Hi/Lo?

Also do you carry H1 bulbs and do you need a harness with H1 bulbs.

Thanks!

Bi-Xenons = HID Low beam & HID High Beam.
High/Low = HID Low Beam & Halogen High Beam. The halogen isnt bright enough to use as a high beam but its there for inspection purposes

We carry H1 bulbs & complete H1 HID Kit. Relay Harness is not needed. PM me if you would like one or have any more questions
