Halogen to xenon mk3

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I was wondering what the process is to replace my halogen headlights with the xenon ones from a titanium x and other models?

You need the headlights (obviously!), headlight washers & correct washer bottle, front and rear suspension level sensors, associated wiring (not sure how much, if any will already be in place) and then they'll need activating with FoCCCus or Forscan.  It's really not worth the cost and hassle.  As above, just go for some better halogen bulbs.

Thanks for the replies.

I understand the need for the suspension and washers, however I have noticed some cars don't have washers. On the fiesta mk7s that have  xenon headlights don't seem to have them. 

 It has been mentioned elsewhere that 'the MOT test says (edited for brevity) :
"Vehicles equipped with HID ....may be fitted with headlamp washers and a suspension or headlamp self levelling system...check the operation of any levelling and cleaning devices fitted...[reason for failure] A headlamp levelling or cleaning device inoperative or otherwise obviously defective.

One could argue that, if it's not there then it's not inoperative or defective!'

Apart from the aforementioned, are the plug pins different in anyway?
