Advice about HID's

Hey everyone,

I bought a 01 with 10K HID headlights and the proper conversion modules installed on it. I want to get rid of the lights and go back to a normal setup with some projector headlights. Is it incredibly complicated to remove this kind of system? I have looked at the wiring and it does not seem terrible to do, but I am apprehensive of what I am getting into. It appears there is a module for each headlight. If anyone has advice please let me know.

Re: Advice about HID's

Yes it's incredibly easy to un/install HID's. There's a ballast for each bulb, so take the bulb outta the headlight, disconnect the ballast from the OEM headlight bulb connector, than you can pull it all out.
