Cheers pal. I guess we just need to work out which wires operate the manual leveling! Id imagine the third wire that gets added in is an earth to make the Xenons work (even though you can just earth the ballast to the chassis).

I have no ideas on that tbh since when its automated sigbal comes from the sensor and not the switch I don't know how it could be done from the switch although thinking about it... it sort of make some sense

The way I see it is that, the sensor is theoretically bypassed and swapped with the levelling module switch? If that makes sense :P

You cannot manually level xenons the motors are different to manual leveling plug they only work on input from the sensor I dont think its possible to make it manual

I was reading on someone's thread on a separate forum, that they added the 3 extra pins in and then piggybacked off of other wires and they managed to get the manual levelers to work on their Xenons

Although for now any fitting of parts is pretty much on hold i have started gathering parts for my next big mod HID xenon headlamps retrofit with self leveling and washers.
 
I got the most expensive and difficult to source parts today for a whopping deal less than half the regular ebay prices.
 
Front ST bumper with holes for jet washers

HID Xenon headlights

Sadly these headlights are not adaptive for cornering that would have been a big bonus, can't ask too much now!
 
Got all ballast and bulbs it's literally as it is right now a straight plug and play. 
 
Next parts needed to complete this mod are much easier and cheaper to source
 
Washer jets + hose and pump
 
Washer bottle with 3 outlets and 2 pumps
 
Self leveling sensors
 
I think i will get these from ford
 
PROJECT STD! stay tuned ;)


Take it you have a 10 pin plug? I've only got the 7 and I wanna know what the wiring mod is that you can do for the leveling to make it manual. Any idea?
