How to EBAY PROJECTOR HID INSTALL 56k should be banned

This is for everyone who wants to install an HID conversion kit for their ebay projector headlights. im doing this to the best of my ability and if i leave anything out please let me know. it is an easy install and should take no more than 45 mins (took me 15) because i did it 4 times. You will need to find the bulb size and color temp when buying the kit. Mine has H1 bulb size but im not sure about all of the others. You will need 3 tools for the intall(well only one you can use the others only if you want to)
Your Hands(duh)

I will be including a video also.

Electrical tape(to clean up the wires together)
Black silicone (to make a good seal for the hid's wire pass through)


Gather your materials. you should have 2 ballasts 2 bulbs 2 wiring kits and 2 ballast brackets



First take out the rubber thing covering the bulb and your factory headlight bulb there is a metal spring clip you will need to take off and should look like this when done


take the rubber thing that seals out water from getting to the bulb and wires and make a small cut in it (about 1/2 inch or bigger)


feed the wiring through the small cut (it may be like a virgin "tight" but stretch the rubber or make the cut a lil bit bigger to make the wires able to feed through, you kinda want it to be tight)


after that tuck all the wires into the back of the moisture thing so you will have room to fit the bulb and wires now is the time to match up the blue(positive) and black(ground) wires. after that plug them into the ballast to ensure everything works

here is the video link this is what you want your kit to be like http://youtube.com/watch?v=CXD3JNRlI5o







put the hid bulb back into the headlight socket and hold it into place with the clamp

put the weather sealer back onto the heaslight to ensure no water gets into it ( now is the time to bust out the silicone and seal the area where the wires came through)


now find a place to mount the ballast, do not place it near extremely hot things or moving objects, belts etc. use the screws that came with the kit



drink a few beers and wait for night time and get ready for your ebay projectors to look like this


repeat to the other side(obviously)

if you have any questions please let me know i'd be more than happy to help



-Anthony

focuz on me is right. 35watts they use less power than halogen 55 watss i think. here is the pic of the lights on the road. taken with my phone so please take that into consideration. yes they are the cheap ebay headlights and cheap ebay hid kit luis is is the same seller and it is not confising at all. really all you have to do is plug in 2 wires for the bulb and color match 3 plugs on the ballast lol.




Here is a video of me turning on the sun lol

Hey man.. I've been looking to get an HID kit for my 05.. would you recommend the eBay kit? I know most things from eBay are crap, but what do you think of the 100$ HID kit? Probably crap is what I am thinking.

i would check with other ff's with the 05 i heard you can get hids for them because its like having high beam hids on all the time and they dont reflect onto the street.

all 4 of the hid kits i have bought are the cheap 100 dollar ebay ones. they do not suck. infact they are great and i reccomend them.

I have this kit and unbelievably it's pretty nice. I had another set by McCullough (sp) that you could tell was an aftermarket HID kit, but these actually look more like BMW lights.

ford525, did yours smell kind of like BBQ or some other kind of food when you got them? Mine did, lol. I wonder if they were smuggled in barrels of BBQ sauce.
