Projector retrofit, finally!
 
Hey guys, finally got around to doing my retrofit..

Only problem is I broke one of the headlight adjusters Shown here.

I could really use your help if anyone has a spare assembly laying around or has focuses available at their junk yard. 90% of my driving is night time and right now my beams are too low to drive at night.


Anyways here are some pics, I didn't take pics of the whole install because Slammed already has one.


Test fitting and aiming before final tightening

The light output is great! Need to fix the high beam which mysteriously stopped working, even though it was working all day.I am thinking it is a ground issue, it's always a ground issue.


And I need that headlight adjuster assembly, if anyone can get their hands on one I will pay for it! Yes that includes ripping it out of any focus you see! lol

You twist it clockwise and pull it out, inside there is a plastic threaded rod with a ball socket on the end.

A7xschecter6661 10-06-2012 10:24 AM

can you get the adjuster from a dealer or body shop? i would like to say ive seen them on a rack at the parts store

i tried to remove mine during my retro fit but i couldnt get the thing out. it turned and loosened but the ball wouldnt come out of its socket.

Yes mine broke off clean because its plastic. I have gone to many parts stores, body shops and searched online. Looks like its a focus only thing and I need one.

Foud a headlight assembly on eBay for like $50. Might have to buy it just for the adjuster

great looking retrofit.

The adjustor doesn't look broke. =/

Im about to buy new shrouds and new bulbs. Seems like my bulbs are starting to dim. (+3 yrs use)

Lol, I think it looks awesome all chrome!
I was going to paint shrouds and reflectors black but decided not to because that just adds more things that can go wrong.

Here is the broken adjuster, a member on here was kind enough that he ripped one out of an old assembly he has and he's sending it to me!

The rod broke in 2, I assembled it back together by drilling down it, and pounding in a ribbed nail and plastic weld but it still won't adjust correctly with messed up threads.
