So my HIDs are acting funny. One day the drivers is off. The next day the passengers off. I'm going to rewire them one more time. If this problem keeps acting up I'm going back to stock bulbs. I hope it's just a loose wire or something.

It could also be a faulty relay...

Are these bi-xenon kits? Or just single beam kits?

Not hard at all. You probably need new rubber caps since you have to make a hole in the original one.

I just had a weird issue with the harness relay was like buzzing and my lights were flickering. After about a hour of removing and removing the connections I finally got the to work as intended again.

Disconnect the resistor harness's from the factory headlight harness's in the headlight assemblies and remove the HID bulbs.

Replace the factory bulbs and reconnect the factory headlight harness's.

Obviously if you aren't going back to them you can remove all the other stuff from the car as well (ballast's, relay harness, etc.)

It's a reverse of the install procedures that have been listed here a couple times.
