  5. Pull the park lamp assembly straight out (direction of arrows in Pic.1&2) and disconnect pigtail.

Prep for Install
  1. Must cut headlight retainer housing as shown (Pic.2). This is easily done with a dremel with a cutting bit, or a small saw. BE CAREFUL NOT TO CUT ANY ELECTRICAL WIRES.
  2. Pic.4 is the back of the new driver’s side projector headlight. In that picture, #1 is the accent lights wires, #2 the halo light wires, #3 the headlight pigtail that plugs in the factory harness.

  3. First we are going to reroute the accent light wires to the halo wires so that they don’t get in the way during installation. Reroute as shown in Pic.5. To do this first remove the 3 screws that hold on the metal plate. Run wire as shown and replace the plate. Careful not to pinch the wire with the plate.

  4. Zip tie the 2 accent light wires with the 4 halo wires right below the headlight, as shown in Pic.7.

  5. Repeat for other side headlight.
Wiring Suggestions
  1. These following steps are not needed but are highly recommended if you intend on removing your headlights at a later date.
  2. Group the two red wires from the halos and the white wire from the accent lights together, strip them and crimp them into a female spade connector.
  3. Group the two black wires from the halos and the black wire from the accent lights together, strip them and crimp them into a male spade connector.
  4. Repeat process for other side headlights.
  5. Create two red 9 inch extension wires with male spade connectors. (Pic.6)

  6. Create two black 9 inch extension wires with female spade connectors. (Pic.6)
  7. Pic.7 is what the headlights should look like when they are ready to go into the car.
Installation of New Lights
  1. Remove the tape and pull back the plastic covering the wires on the park lamp/turn signal pigtail to expose the wires. The brown wire is the positive (+12 volts) when the headlamp switch is in the “park” position. The black wire is the ground wire. (Pic.8)

  2. If you followed the wiring suggestions, use a mid line wire tap (blue piece in Pic.9) connect one of the red extension wires to the brown wire about 6 inches back from the pigtail connector. (Pic.9) If you DID NOT follow the wiring suggestions, directly tap the two red halo wires and the white accent light wire to the brown wire.
