Install Retrofit Projector Headlights on a Suzuki
Installing LED Bi-Xenon Projector Retrofits is a great afternoon project that is a nice car upgrade from dim stock factory light to a gorgeous crisp white glow. This guide covers everything from undoing the bumper in the beginning all the way to mounting the shrouds.
- flathead screwdriver
Undo the bumper mounting screwed by slipping a flathead screwdriver into the plastic clip in the wheel well and push it straight in. The center will pop up so you can remove the clip. There is a Phillips screw at the indent in the bumper cover that needs to be removed.
Use the Phillips to remove the top bumper screwed along the rad support. Yank the sides of the bumper to pull it free from the fender. There are two rubber hood stoppers that you have to pull the bumper over. For the headlight, remove the screw under the bumper corner, two at the top, and use a flathead screwdriver to pop the clip connected to the fender.
Remove the plugs that go into the light and pull out the clip it's connected to at the bottom inside corner. Heat the perimeter of the lens using a heat gun or an oven and gently pry the headlight open. Make sure the tabs are out of the way to the lens can release.
After the headlight is open, remove the bulb shield from the reflector by pulling off the rubber dust boot at the back of the light first. There are two tabs bent over that hold the shield in. All you need to do is bend them back straight and pull the shield out of the reflector.
Time to mount the projectors! There is a bulb holder that is held on with three screws that you'll need to remove from the back. The large silicone rings that need to go to the back of the projector. Slip the projector through the bulb hole. You will need to fasten it with the threaded ring and washer.
This is only if your kit has the plug installed on the bi-xenon solenoid's wires: Use a paperclip to press the small tabs on the pins and pull out the plug. There will be a hole from the old bulb where you will feed the wires.
Put the rubber dust boot into the back of the light and allow the solenoid wires to come through the middle of the boot. Put the bulb holders back and clip the H1 HID capsules into the projectors. Twist the projector to get the two projector cutoffs level with each other. Turn them off and you can mount the shrouds and put the lenses back on after.
Installation will be different for every shroud you choose, but the general idea is pretty much the same. For the most part, the shroud is a press fit onto the projector. Use a heat gun to warm the glue to press the housing together. The tabs should catch on and after this you can mount the relay and ballasts.
You're now done and can enjoy your new lights. Credit goes to WylieC from Clubsx4.
