Help

What's up im New to the site. Got a question for yall. I have a 07 focus and im upgrading my headlights to a ddm tuning 10k hids and I belive my bulbs are the 9007's. Well I got to install the bulbs and its like they will not go all the way in,maybe cause of the reflector deal in them?? Also on the harness for the kit it has 3 wires with pin connectors on the end that you slide into the adapter given. I take it that its gonna plug into the driver side headlight harness so the switch will operate the lights. If anyonehas dealt with this please feel free to respond

to FF!

Are you putting them into your stock housings, or are you talking about aftermarket headlamps? Some aftermarket projector headlamps are not safe for use with HID's, they tend to melt the housings. If you are using your stock housings, I would recommend doing a morimoto mini retrofit for the best results

No im using stock headlamps,and I already have the hids bought but being so hard to acess the back housing I can't get the lights to fit. Gonna try removing the housing to get a better look at what I'm doing. Am i roght about the 3 pin connector wires plugging into the driver harness?

Try one of the retrofit guides, might be of assistance seeing their pictures and directions:

Also, re-naming your post something relevant would help get you better answers from others that have added HID's.
