Hey guys. Started my retrofit this afternoon, first headlight came apart with little effort compared to the lens on my truck.
I've hit a snag though, I ground out enough material from the locking part of the bulb socket to get the projector through the bulb hole, but not nearly enough of the projector's thread pokes through to get the silicone thing, lock ring, washer and bulb holder in place. I can only thread the main nut enough to hold it in place. Anyone have any suggestions on how I can get the projector far enough back in the housing to get it secured?

|Mrlandy||I did the heat gun trick and spent nearly 4 hours opening my headlights. On my second set, I used a dremel to cut off the top housing lip and pried the front right off. Dremel was better for me, it took 20 minutes. Hot knife took way too long even with a 60 watt iron.|

How did you bypass the " dipped beam fault" ?
Resistors or relays or something ?

|Mrlandy||You will need a lockpick, or a mft with the backup cam enabled. Lockpick 2 is $300 and lets you add 3cameras. Heres my full writeup:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s....php?p=4723640|
