Mk2 Xenon Headlamp Retrofit

Recommended Posts

 

They look, just like i'd expected. But have search some faults from my car, still i think that 1) bulbs are coming to an end, 2) low voltage, 3) optics are fading. or 4) ballast has come to an end. But if ballast has coming to end, they start to blink and don't start easily bulbs.

Nazsky786: have your optic on lamps clear or dimmed, and chrome or balck housing?

Clear optics with chrome backing. But the backing would make no difference.

I don't think the optics themselves make any diffrence as well.

I think if they are dimmed for using, they can't produce light as planned, have to take tomorrow and test H7 and external ballast. Post more info at sunday :)

Have you tried adjusting the beam pattern? To me it seems like it's has a small pattern where normally you can widen the view pattern of the light beam

It's located under the headlight switch or behind it. It wiring is hidden behind but on some cars it not there. But 90% of the time it's not there.

Well, I guess mine is one of them 10%. because I've been searching for mine behind the light switch with no succes.

It's not there.

Even my local ford dealer couldn't find it there.

Looks like you'll need some night vision glasses.

regarding the module; if I remove the switch i'm suppose to see the module immediately?
