Can someone show me how to install these HIDs, Pics**

Hey i was looking for a DIY for this but i couldnt find it and i searched it but it wouldnt include HID in the search so i had to make a thread...my friend came and dropped these off to me..doesnt know what car there meant for but they were in a mazda i think. i tried watching some videos on youtube but they didnt really give me any ideas cause every kit is diferent..if it matters i have a 2001 lude.

There are two of the ballast and wiring that is on the left**

Re: Can someone show me how to install these HIDs, Pics**

Thanks for the replies guys, i did try to see if they fit and its not wide enough for the metal springy thing to hold them down, but it looks like it can be easily ghetto fitted to sit nicely in there, i am just stumped on which wires connect to the battery and which ones connect to the existing plug that connected the headlights...

And i live smack dab rite in central jersey, middlesex county. I drive a 2001 white lude, looks really flashy so maybe some of you have seen me, its starting to fall apart thoe,damn body kits i drive alot on Rt nine by manalapan, old bridge area if you see me beep or sumtin haha

worddd they don't need to be hooked up to the battery at all. if you can get the bulbs to fit, the two male/female connectors coming off the bulb attach to the other two male/female connectors that are on the right side of the first pic.

then the other wires connect to the stock headlight wiring. it looks as if there's a conversion harness on that one to use it on mazda's, but it won't work on our cars. unplug that harness, and there's a possibility that it might might MIGHTTTTTTTT connect to the stock headlight connector. if not, your either gonna need a diff conversion harness, or cut and splice the wires.

You shouldn't have to cut anything. It should just plug right up.
