Installation


Tools Required:


-Pliers
-Wire Strippers


Installation: (For safety, disconnect the battery OR ensure lights are turned OFF!)


1. Remove the two headlight retaining clips, simply pull them up.


2. Pull the entire headlight assembly towards the front of the car and unplug the headlight wire harness from the headlight.


3. Unplug the parking light wire harness from the bulb.


4. With about a ¼ turn, twist the parking lamp socket and remove with the bulb, from old headlight assembly.


5. Attach parking light plug and bulb into new headlight.


6. Plug in the new headlight’s wire harness to the existing wire harness.


7. Remove electrical tape and some of the plastic heat guard from the parking light harness to expose the Black, Brown, and Green/White wires. Using pliers and a quick splice connector, attach the Black wire from the bottom of the new headlight to the Black wire on the harness. You may need to strip the wires on the new headlight more than they are already, I did not. ***Note*** Be cautious, the Black and Brown stock wires can look alike due to weathering, I had to rub the dirt off to find the black wire.


8. Connect the Blue wire from the new headlight to the Brown wire using quick splice connector and reconnect parking lamp wire harness to the bulb assembly.


9. Push the headlamp wire harness through the opening the stock wire harness comes from to make room for the new headlight.


10. Put new headlight into place, adjusting it as needed to ensure a snug fit, that it is not sticking out from the side and that the retaining clips brackets are accessible.



11. Replace retaining clips from step 1, and repeat steps 1-12 on second headlight.


Final Testing:


Once finished reconnect battery or turn on lights, should be as follows:
