Them hid conversion kits are not the proper xenon system. Legal xenon system. You will blind people with them. You need to have the correct lens which are projector not halogen reflective. You also need them leveled or you would be the blind one on the road . And then you need them always clean so you get headlight washers.

The 10 pin loom inside of the engine bay and headlight is not only for HID it is also for AFS there is a slight difference in wiring for the two. The same headlight controll module is used but the "jumper" setup is different.

So a car with wiring for HID may actually be wiring for AFS. Same wires

Yes, so i'd looked on schem. I've try to find dash wiring harnesss for xenon but salvage yard don't store them here, don't know why (after all it still valuable for those who built on them self). Ebay hasn't to offer also.

Yeah it is overpriced but also valuable to people who know what to do with it.

Xenon retrofit is a very expensive mod

For the headlights the only mods as off yet are the hid module installed, and rear level sensor installed and st headlights. Still need to find the correct front level sensor and install the jets. And get the covers for jets. Almost there really just need some remaining parts and know how to put the jets on, to scared to cut the bumper.

I got the wrong one. Turns out it's from a rs not st. I didn't do what you are planning on doing I just completely replace the dashboard loom with rs.

Rs and st uses the same type, all other model use another type. All to do with suspension setup.

Do you mean that your xenons go up and down when you first start the car?

I have the rear one it looks correct the front one looks wrong. Yh when you first start the car. So i know the headlights and the module work now. Now it to install the jets and the sensors.

You can see that one sensor looks like it's from another car. And it's missing a bracket.

Yes indeed does, but all you need to test fit, and measure bolt holes and length, that's i gonna do.

It's cheap enough from ford and you'll know for sure all fixings for sensors come as a set.

The up and down movement at start is self testing.

Did you activate it on elm? Probably was already activity in module

I would just get bolts from them, or could just ask them the price and size. But still need to get the front sensor. Can't find it on eBay or anywhee else.
