(with pics please)


there isn't really anything to it

if you can change the low beam bulb, you can install HID

and the manual covered how to change the low beam bulb already

i use double-sided tapes and zip ties to secure the ballast to the cross frame right above the headlights

you can always pop the hood and see if these all make sense to you

if not, you can always ask more questions :)

p.s. just don't touch the HID bulb with your fingers during any time of the installation


Ok, I'll take a look under my hood and see whats up. Thanks for the reply.

I think the only way to reset that is with the OBD II Scanner...or whatever they use to read engine codes for our cars.

to my knowledge thats the only way as far as check engine lights go so the same would be for an SRS light. My cousin's Acura TL had the same problem and resetting it with the scanner did the trick.

ok DIY without pictures for now

-open your glove box
-you will see a little hinge on the right with a screw in it
-unscrew it and take apart the hinge
-then press both sides of the glove department on the black plastic inward
-that will release the glove department and just lay it on the floor
-then if look you will see a white box, move out the wires from it while trying to pull it out.
-then take the filter out and replace with the new
-after that follow the arrow on the box to make sure it is going inside upright.
-after that just attach the glove box and screw the hinge back together
-and thats it

hopefully this may help, i will take pictures when i have a chance.
