DIY: **HID in e36 FOGS BY Brent**
i would like to express my thanks to Brent (zx7rhitch) for this excellent write up, well done.:buttrock
start by popping the fog light out, use a long flat screw driver to pry it out.
bracket minus the fog light.
remove the connector and cut the wires, leave a bit of slack should you ever get the urge to go back to stock..:rolleyes
minus the plug.
one more, black and red wires are from the adapter harness (marked as input from hid box) we include with the hid kit:
remove back cover from fog and pry the back cover plate:
drill a hole in the back cover, ~7/8" will do:
this is what you should have when you are done:
solder the harness into the factory wires:
heat shrink and cover with elec. tape for good measure:
this is what it should look like at this point:
lit up :D:
mount the ballast in the bumper support beam or another solid surface, pop the fog light back in place and enjoy.
habbie, you are making my bank account drop down to zero so very often, i hate you!
so I cant seem to get the headlight to sit at all. Its like the housing on the back of the unit is too big for the hole. Is there any angle I am missing to get these to just drop right in?
ugh, delete that...I was looking at two light forums and posted in the wrong one...sorry
where can i get that wire harness (the one when pulled out of the grommet)?
