HID Lights Question.

SO I recently bought a pair of the OEM HID headlights for my 2002 SVT Focus. When I first looked at them I was in love. Now I have a problem, what is the appropriate bulbs and ballast for the HID Lights? There are so many options out there of what I can do but I'm also wondering what kind of bulbs\ ballast do I use and where they go.

For the HID Headlight there are 4 placements for bulbs. I know one of them is the for the turn signal and one is for HID but what about the other two?



Thank you for your time by reading this thread.

There is a city light (running light), blinker, HID low beam and high beam.

City light is a 194
Blinker is a 3057
HID is a D1S
High beam is a H1
(to the best of my recollection)

I'm guessing you got the Depo lights as they are new but don't come with lamps or ballasts.
You can try to source factory parts. There are used parts out there and you can buy brand new ($$$$).
Or you can buy a 'retrofit' style kit (search D1s retrofit) and adapt something to fit.
It all depends on your technical abilities.

Did you buy just the housings? If so, where? I need to replace mine, the tabs are broken and they are in lousy shape. Thanks
