the slots on the front just pop out but do it carfully (PUN)  behind them is polystyrene  inserts these also pull out ,lights should just pop in  insert cables first and use cable ties to keep cable away from and moving parts on the Engine   then wire up as per the instructions  tbh i had an auto electrician wire mine up took him 10 mins but was done correctly

I fitted the lights myself and got my local garage to do the electrical stuff, there may meamobile electrician somewhere local

but honestly  fit the lights yourself.

Are you in Southampton @MjCarr? I'm assuming you must be fairly local to me as you're based in Hampshire and got a Saints logo for an avatar!

If you can't figure it out, I might be able to find an hour or so to have a look and give you some guidance.

Have a look at my build thread (in my sig) as I've fitted a set of these and have a full write up there!

to fit them you need to find a live in the fuse box that only come's on when the key is turn too on . and then find the dip head lights wire . job done 1 hour

Jamie, use a mini fuse tap into fuse 42 in the engine bay fuse box near the battery then use a scotch block (sometimes called a wire tap) and put your drls white (or blue depending on which you have) wire into the terminated side and put either the sidelight or headlight wire into the thru side.

I made mine dim with dipped beam which was (I think) the purple and green wire.

Full details of my installation are in my build thread (link in my signature or search for "things I'd like to do to my mk3")
