Need help fitting LED Halo rings on ford fiesta mk7!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm looking to fit LED halo ring fog surrounds onto my mk7 Fiesta. There are a few places I can get them but can someone please tell me how easy they are too fit? Hopefully someone has fitted these and know what do do!

Here's a link to the website with instructions but still don' understand as haven't done this before 😣 thanks for any help!

Have you checked this guide. Also will really appreciate any pictures when it's up and running. I saws these and really liked them but don't know how they will look on the mk6 fiestas

The wiring part looks dead easy to me, just basic electrical stuff using a multi-meter set to 12v DC. I've not really looked into it, but not sure how they mount on the fog lights, but it can't be that hard.

I think it just sticks on don't it. Don't they supply any two sided sticky tapes. From the instructions you switch your sidelights on, use a voltmeter to find the wire which powers the sidelights and most likely splice that wire and solder in the correct wire from the halo lights. Then from there switch the hazard lights on and use the voltmeter again to find the indicator wire and wire the halo wire into that so that it will flash amber when the indicators are switched on. 

These do look cool but don't know how they would look. Might consider getting them.

The hazard lights are no good here. Otherwise you'll end up flashing both fog lights when you press one of the indicators, and non will flash for the other.

You'll need to use the indicator wire themselves so that you know which side is which.

Sorry Luke if I might of not properly explained it but it says to check the voltage from the wiring loom to see if there's constant voltage. I'm sure you'd wire one halo light on one side and another on the other side. From there when you switch the indicators on on one side the voltage would power the halo light.

Just to clarify remove the headlights and disconnect the plug to them. Switch sidelights on and use a multimeter to check each wire to identify the right one which powers the sidelights. You'd then wire in one of the halo lights wire into that. Repeat this on the other side. Check there working. Next switch the hazards on and find the wire on both sides which power the indicators and wire in the halo lights. You wire in one halo light for each side so one would indicate on the correct side 👍. 

Only thing I'm not really sure about are the positive and negative wires but I'm sure luke will help 😊

Autobeam is doing some black Friday deals at the moment. They reduce the halo indicators kit. Don't know if I should get it

One thing to note about the Ambient ring guide, they tell you to wire it straight to the battery but I dont know if it includes an inline fuse and also wiring it straight to the battery sounds like a good way to drain your battery,  id rather wire it to an ignition live fuse.

I'm not having a go by any means, it's just the words black friday infuriates me. It's such a farse, literally an excuse for retaillers to put their prices up a few weeks before and then drop them back to where they were on black friday. Or they get rid of crap stock nobody would otherwise buy.

Slap a sale sign on Polaroid TV and you'll have people fighting over it. Polaroid made cameras, and they were awful at that too.

"Black FRIDAY sale all week" , like how does that work? 🤔🤔

I remember watching BBC news on one of the previous black Fridays and they showed a crowd of people waiting outside a supermarket. Some who had their sleeping bags with them. When they opened the doors to the shop everyone rushed in, some people getting pushed down to the floor and people trampling over them like a stampede. Just looking at these people make me think how idiotic they are.

 

Branchino you can also ask autobeam aswell about wiring them in. I just asked them about this kit and the suitable size and they told me the suitable size for my car and sent a video on how they look. Customers service is very good.

Cool I'll message them too... also I looked a few days ago and the indicator rings were £30 So don't know if it' been going on a little while or if there trying to pull a fast one? 🤔

I'm sure they were going for around £40 or £39.98. Also just ordered them for my fiesta 😊. I don't think this kit needs anything going to the battery as it would get its power from the sidelights and indicators. 

Also what size did you get? Was it the 70mm one?

Yeah that's right. When I was asking about the suitable size they said for my mk6 fiesta it's 60mm and mk7 is 70mm.

The ring fits inside the fog light lens against the surround. I kept thinking it fits on the surround until they told me.

Nice! I did wonder! I am thinking of wiring it to my drl and not side lights as well as indicators... I'd like them on all the time as opposed to just side ights... do you recon that' possible? 

 

At least we can figure this out together when they arive !

Actually asked them that and they said you can. This is what I asked.

Well with me my dad does mechanic work as a hobby so he knows how to do stuff like this. I don't know about DRL. Could find a wire going to the lights and wire the rings to it or you can wire it to a fuse which supplies power when ignition has turned on. I don't really know about drl so don't take my opinion.

Any updates on the fitting. Mine just arrived 10 minutes ago :laugh:. Also curious but how close are your rings to the fog light surround. I'd say for me there's a 5mm gap if I placed the rings in the middle which I hope doesn't look odd when it's fitted on.
