I am also having issues with bi-xenon headlight retrofit on my focus mk2 with standart h7 lamp. The problem is that my connector looms has 7 of 10 pins wired up. As I understood from Haz93's thread for his headlights, I only have to connect an additional earth wire on pin 8, but is realy only this to have to do ? Have I understood correct?

We and a friend of mine are trying to find headlight diagrams , but unfortuantely, without any success..Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

Tomorrow we are starting the conversion and any diagram will greatly relieve our work... I am open to any other advices and I will try to get a picture material of the process.

I would also liek to know ( if we manage to do it) how is the situation with the auto levelling? My car has manual levelling, but we noticed that bi-xenons that are from ST has auto levelling motor. So, we are going to replace them, but we are not sure whether it will work.

Thank you in advance for any assistance!

Auto levellers also rely on a sensor on the rear of the car to get the balance right when weight is added to the back end.
I'm not sure an auto system will work correctly without this sensor.

I can't find any data regarding the plug layout sorry.
Reading up in my Haynes it says that there are two ride height sensors, front right wheel lower control arm and rear one on the left rear lower control arm.

You managed to match up the connectors?
How do they look?

Hey guys, here is the topic how we managed to do it: http://fordclub.bg/f...enonovi-farove/
Its in bulgarian, but you can try read it using http://translate.google.com and ask if there's something unclear. I'll be glad to help you.

About the connectors, all you need to do is to make an electrical bridge between pin 8 (the xenon's negative) to the negative of the hallogen bulb. It can be done inside the headlight, but first you need to free the socket from the back of the headlight. The other thing to do is to replace the leveling motors - take the ones from the old hallogen headlight and put them in the xenons.

As I said, ask freely, I'll be glad to help you! Cheers!

I keep saying ill do a guide to fitting things but never get round to them but I will if I get some spare time. Also it will differ for mk2 and mk2.5 due to different wiring setups on each individual car and the mk2 headlights have different bulbs and ballast to the mk2.5

If you need any advice there are a few people welcome to help as said above and also myself too

Are you pleased with the retro fit Bi-Xenons? if so any links to what you actually purchased? I worry about OEM products sometimes incase they are all show and no go!

Just a note, my connector is fully wired up, so xenons should be plug 'n' play hopefully/surely
