Mk2 Xenon Headlamp Retrofit

Recommended Posts

The xenon loom bit comes from all over the place. You have some which go to the blue connector and some which go directly to the outside with the Y connector you mentioned. That's why I choose just to change the loom. Harder to get in but overall way better way or doing it instead of pinning wires etc.

I think the ones that go directly out are for the leveling sensors. Then the blue connector just carry the configuration info. And the light switch. Don't get me wrong changing the loom is a lot of work.

Yh dismantle the centre console screws near the back. Then take everything you can off the steering wheel and the dashboard itself. Side kick panels a pillars. Glove box, panels . Then there are screws all at the bottom the top bit off dash is covered by clips just pull.

I seem to have made the issue worse. I messed with that connector and the airbag light is on now. Going to have to keep messing with it.

Forscan has a b2227 error. Which is front crash sensor communication fault. So that connector is being a real issue.

Headlights will go all the way down if you don't have everything connected up. And the connectors are hard to take off.

I know about that. My car connectors from lights are not so hard to take of, because i'd lubricated them, just little bit of silicon, after i cleaned them :)

Closer inspection, Left handside assembly from parking light, is broken. Adapter that hold parking lamp in right position, is cracked. I think someone took too much power to turn lamp right place causing crack to holder, and lamp is wrong place causing again heat more holder. :( Well i go monday another place to take left side lamp assembly.

It's best you return and get another pair. If you replace only one at a time they make the car look weird. I did it people thought I had an accident.

No. The older the light the more dirt and marks be on it. I'm doing the lighting mod. Do you know what wires are dlr for the headlight?

Return is a problem, they don't accept return, because product they sell, it's as it. Buyer accept terms, on selling situation, and those are from damaged vehicle, but i can live with that :) Here's some testing foto's. D1S is original, park lamp is philips LED's and foglamps, are some chinese led, H11 30W.
