  5. Test-fit the new headlight in the factory headlight housing. You may have to trim some of the factory housing to make room for the projector housing on the new headlight. If you need to trim the housing, see the photo below for where to do so.

  6. Use the supplied scotch-lock connectors to wire your new headlight. The black wire from the accessory light on the new headlight and one red wire from the projector (does not matter which one) go to the black wire on the parking light harness. The red wire from the accessory light on the new headlight and the other red wire from the projector go to the brown wire on the parking light harness.
