Mk2 Xenon Headlamp Retrofit

Recommended Posts

Searched some internet wonderful world and found maybe cheaper solution to upgrade light performance. Search some ebay and there will sell Hella E55 bixenon projectors less 100€/pair. Little modification or so, that's tuning :), its far better way, buy new headlamps with same plastic reflectors as now has.

Little update, I've bought retrofit brackets for Hella gen 3 projectors, founded on ebay. Why? because Hella's projectors won't fit directly to Visteon mountings. More soon ;)

It is possible. You would just need to rewire the headlight a little. Not done it myself but check out this thread.

I've done it on my MK2.5. Had to also swap the motors as they are a different type for manual levelling. You can remove them from your current halogen units though I just got myself another couple of motors cheaply enough so I could leave original halogen set alone.  Makes it easy to reinstall the halogen lights if required.

Your headlight connector is 7pin or 10 pin? .My connector is 7 pin .I can't find step by step instructions to do this.

My connector is 10 pin but they weren't all connected. It's 5 years since I did it so I will have a quick look in the morning, the main modification was the motor wiring and I had to change one of the other connections as well.

Hoping this will help. I bought a pair of genuine HID Xenon headlights from a scrapped Focus ST for my MK2.5. The headlight connector is the same but if your car was not factory fitted with HID headlamps, you will need to change the levelling motors as they are different. The HID levelling motors that are used with auto levelling have 4 wires, the manual motors have 3 wires. First thing is to obtain a pair of manual motors and the white 3 pin connectors from donor headlights. They don't necessarily have to be from  a Focus, I know the MK1 KA appeared to use the same motors for a start.

Then the motors need to be removed from the HID headlights and the 4 connection wires cut. I taped the wires up and kept the motors so they could be reinstalled later if required. Then it is necessary the wire the motors to the connector on the back of the headlight. This can be prised out with a flat blade screwdriver. In addition, pin 6 & 8 need to be connected to provide a ground to the HID ballast. The pin numbers can be seen on the connector.

The diagram below shows the connections:

The 3 pin motor plug for the manual motor is shown below. The connection numbers can just be seen on the plug but are tiny.

And finally is a pic of the headlamp cluster connector prised out of the headlamp body with the connections. It's not easy to photograph due to the wiring.
