How to Convert HID Xenon Headlights

Save

If your dissatisfied with the brightness of the factory-installed halogen headlights on your vehicle, you may want to convert your headlight assemblies to High Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon bulbs. HID Xenon headlights put out more lumens than halogens and last longer. Converting to HID Xenon headlights is a simple and straightforward procedure that can be performed in less than half an hour.

Things You'll Need

  • HID Xenon headlight kit
  • Turn off your car and prop open the hood.

  • Disconnect the wiring harness from the back of the headlight unit.

  • Remove the halogen bulb from inside the headlight unit.

  • Connect the wiring harness you removed earlier to the ballast that comes with the HID Xenon headlight kit.

  • Connect the HID Xenon headlight bulb to the connector on the ballast.

  • Insert the HID Xenon into the position that the halogen bulb was in before you removed it.

  • Mount the ballast on the back of the headlight unit using the double-sided adhesive pad provided in the kit.
