Hey, guys. It's Sara with americanmuscle.com, and today we have a review and install of the Raxiom LED Projector Headlights, fitting your '18 and newer Mustang EcoBoosts and GTs without HIDs. This is perfect for the Mustang owner who's looking to replace their headlights, and wants a pair that will complement the OEM look, while changing up the look of the LEDs. These pro series projector headlights project a brighter, more focused beam of light, and feature LED accents as well. They feature clear lenses with black housings, and complete plug-and-play installation.So as far as price goes, these come in at around $650, putting them a bit on the higher end, price-wise, when compared to other options. And for your money, you're getting a projector-style headlight with black surrounds that feature LED accents. I'm giving this install a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It features direct plug-and-play installation, and can be done within two hours. So with that said, let's jump into our install. For this install, you will need a pop clip removal tool, a trim panel removal tool, a ratchet 13, 10, 8, 7, and 5-1/2-millimeter sockets.All right, so the first step in our install with your hood popped is to take off the rad support cover with a pop clip removal tool. Go ahead and line up each of these pop clips, and take them out one by one. Then you can grab the cover and remove it off of your car. Next up, we're gonna remove all of the bolts holding on our front bumper, starting with these small 5-1/2-millimeter bolts at either side. Grab a 5-1/2-millimeter socket and a ratchet, and get these off. Moving on to the next bolt, this one's an 8-millimeter, so grab an 8-millimeter socket and your ratchet and let's get this off.Okay, so now we need to get access to the back of our bumper through the wheel well. We need to remove a pop clip. That should be right here. Ours does not have one. Once that's removed, you just need to grab the liner and pull it back to expose two nuts right about here. All right, so right here...this may be hard to see while we're removing them, but these are the nuts that you want to remove in order to separate the bumper from the fender. Grab your 10-millimeter socket and remove these nuts. All right, repeat that process on the other side. Now, you can take more of the clips out to get more of the liner out. You can even take your wheel off if you'd like, but you can get to it without removing too many things, so we're gonna try to do that here. Grab your 10-millimeter socket and remove the two nuts that hold your fender to your bumper. Again, you might not see these, but they're in the exact same location as the other side.All right, so at this point, we have the car in the air. Now, you don't need a lift to do this. We just wanna give you a better shot at the underneath of the car to see what you're supposed to be doing. Grab a 7-millimeter socket. We're gonna remove all of the bolts that are holding on the bottom of the bumper. All right, so at this point, we can release the side of the bumper. So right in between those two nuts that you took off, there is, like, a pop clip attached to a bracket, so you need to release this to release the bumper. You can go in from the side, but if you're concerned about the paint and you still have the wheel well liner out of the way, you can get at it from the back here. Just go in between the bracket and release it. Repeat that on the other side. All right, at this point, we can lift the bumper off the top of these posts up here to release it, pull it down and out of the way, and you should be able to see several connectors. Locate the connectors holding on your bumper still. Go ahead and press and release them, one on each side. Repeat that on the other side. All right, now you can pull the bumper off of your car.So now that the bolts holding on the headlight are exposed, we can use our 13-millimeter socket to take off the one on the side. Grab a 10-millimeter socket if you can find one, for the bolt on top, closest to the rad support. Then there's one additional bolt all the way at the bottom underneath your headlight. Go ahead and wiggle your headlight loose. Release the connector on the back, and also release this clip that holds on the wiring harness. Install the connector on your new headlight. Listen for the click, and also reinstall this clip on the bottom section here. Press it over top of this post. Go ahead and line up the plastic post up here. Grab your factory hardware and reinstall it. Grab your 13-millimeter socket and tighten down the bolt on the side of your headlight. Grab your 10-millimeter socket and tighten down the bolt at the top of your headlight. And repeat that for the bottom one.All right, now that we have our factory headlight uninstalled from our Mustang, we can check it out side by side with our Raxiom headlight. Now, at service level, they both look to be a little bit similar in design. They have black housings and clear lenses. They're both projector-style headlights, but it's in the subtle details inside of the headlight, where the LEDs are placed, to give it a little bit different style than they're used to with the factory. So with that said, let's finish up our install.All right, now we can repeat that process on the other side, starting with removing the side bolt using our 13-millimeter socket, moving on to the top bolt with our 10-millimeter, and finally, the bolt on the bottom. Grab your headlight and pull straight forward.Release the clip on the bottom that is holding on your wiring harness, and then release your connector by pressing down on the tab and disconnecting it. Connect your harness to your new headlight. You should hear a click. Grab the wiring harness and attach it to the post to hold it in place. Angle it up to your Mustang. You should be looking for two posts to line up. One is up top here and one is on the side. Those should line up perfectly to your bolt holes. Install your factory hardware. Finally, make sure you reinstall the bolt on the side of your headlight, and tighten it down. Reconnect your harness onto the bumper. Make sure you get the other side as well. Replace the bumper on top of the rad support. Line up all the posts that you removed before. It should all stick in these little holes. Now we can line up the sides.All right, now you can reattach the corners of your bumper. We're just gonna leave them with a pop clip for now. We'll go reinstall our nuts later. Repeat that on the other side. All right, now that we're underneath our Mustang, we're gonna line up the bolt holes with the splash guard underneath here and get them reinstalled. Grab your 7-millimeter socket and tighten these down. Moving on to the wheel well, we're gonna grab the factory nuts to reinstall them to the bumper. Peel back your wheel well liner, line up your nuts on the posts on the bumper. Go ahead and install them.Grab a 10-millimeter socket and tighten them down. Replace the wheel well liner and reinstall your pop clips. Repeat that process on the other side. Grab your 10-millimeter socket and tighten these down. Replace the wheel well liner and reinstall any pop clips.All right, now we can reinstall the factory hardware that goes on the top of our bumper. Grab your 8-millimeter socket and tighten them down. Finally, replace the two small bolts on either side. And using a 5-1/2-millimeter socket, tighten these down. Replace the rad support cover, line up the holes in the cover, and reinstall your pop clips.All right. So that is gonna do it for the review and install of these Raxiom headlights. And remember, for all things Mustang, keep it at americanmuscle.com.
