Default How To: Halo headlight mod (2001-2010)

Written By: vrod21

Discussion Thread: How To: Halo headlight mod (2001-2010)








First, we need to rip out the halogens that it came with.
pull off the rubber boot on the back, locate the bulb and the ground wire



Cut these two ends off, strip the wires and get your HID kit.




Now connect: Red to Green and Black to Black



Then slide the HID bulb in and close the bracket back over the top



Cut the boot so the HID grommet will fit in. Also cut a small hole for the headlight connector (just below the grommet). This is what it will look like. Clean but a lot of wires.




Take off these molding pieces. Same on both sides.



Lift up on these two brackets that hold the headlight in. Pull out the one my hand is on. The new headlights have different brackets.



Pull old headlight out and disconnect these wires.



Remove these screws and disconnect corner light.




In the following next steps. It is up to you which lights you want to connect to the signal/park/headlight wires

Cut off connector or splice into these wires from the corner. These are your park lights.



Like so. I decided to cut it off. Black to Black. Gray to White



I also put the Halos in to the park lights. Again, Black to Black to Black. Gray to White and Red



Now it time for the signals. This is the brown connector. Cut the Black wire behind the connector with enough room to splice. Cut the green wire behind the connector with enough room to splice.
Splice White to Green and Black to Black.



Connect your headlight.



Pull off these clip nuts (name?) Install the ones that came with the headlights.



Install this bracket that came with the headlights.



Slide headlight in (tight fit with the new wires. I had to zip tie the wires to make it easier. Install this bracket that came with the new headlights where you removed the old one.



Slide down other bracket



Your done with one side! My son was done helping at this point.




Do the same to the other side. When your done attach the ballasts and connect your HID's. No how to on this I figure we know his by now.







Here is the turn signal. Took me three shots to catch it. Three LED's at the top and the double filament amber light under the HID Halo.



Hi Beams




Projector Cutoff (Light above line is Halo)




And some more pics:






Good luck. Do at your own risk!
