I also supply the bulb adapters if you do no want to chop up your OEM ones.
PM me, KITS IN STOCK
Face lift CTR HID H1 Conversion.
Due to the H1 lamps in the facelift model but H4 retaining spring on the back of the projectors, fitting is not a straight forward plug and play. So please read on.
What is required?
1. A dremmel type tool.
I bought one from ebay for £20
2. Hotmelt glue gun.
Again around £20.
3 Basic hand tools – Small flat head screwdriver and pliers.
4. step removed
5. Stick Velcro pads.
6. Spare set of H1 –H4 plastic adapters from Honda as there is no going back. £20
STEP 1 - Lamp Removal.
Take out old lamp and adapters keeping the old lamps safe in the car with the new adapters for back ups. Do not touch the glass.
STEP 2 - Adapter Mod.
Using a very small screwdriver GENTLY prise the resin and lugs away on the pins on the back of the adapter and pull out.
This is a little tricky but they do come.
STEP 3 - The Tricky Bit.
Using the Dremmel type tool use the thin cutting blade and file out the remaining plastic in the adapter. Mind those fingers!!
STEP 4 - The Vital Bit.
Cut off the rubber grommet and feed in the HID lamp in place.
At this point I will point out the orientation of the lamp is VITAL. Please note is slightly turned to the left.
***Without the correct orientation you will find it difficult to fit into the projector later.***
***** the position of the lamp is INCORRECT in this picture and should be the same angle but turned to THE LEFT*****
STEP 4 - Glue Time.
Hotmelt glue in place without gluing up the lamp. Do this but putting a blob of glue under the lip of the lamp and pressing back down FLAT.
Also glue the rear to stop any other movement.
STEP 5 - The Easy Bit.
Mount the ballast in the engine bay. The only place I could see to put them was near the front shockers.
I secured mine with self adhesive Velcro. WHY? Because I wasn’t sure about drilling through there. I will consult my best bud when I see him next, he’s a mechanic.
This will also allow quick removal if you are like me and clean your engine bay down as the ballasts in this lower are not 100% water proof. Ian does sell a better kit but at a price.
STEP 6 - Fitting Lamps
With the thin brown tube on the lamp facing up GENTLY fit and retain the clip. The one behind the washer bottle is a right slag to do but not impossible.
STEP 7 – Wiring Loom.
Plug in all the wiring. This is as simple as it sounds.
When you look at the plug facing you, with the centre pin at the top, the +ve (Red) is on the LEFT. The -ve (Black) is on your right.
Plug in the connectors and wrap a little tape around the block.
The centre pin that is left is empty as that is the pin for the main beam for the older EP3's.
Make sure you get the polarity correct. The red wire on the Honda loom is +ve.
STEP 8 – The Best Bit.
Turn on your new lights and show off to all your mates.
****The colour of the HID lamp here is no way near to what it is in the flesh. This is way bluer*****
Just a few points to help the installation.
1. You can cut the supplied rubber grommet off, don't drill the 25mm hole as it states in the booklet. That is for cars with a solid plastic cover.
2. The ballast supply is easy. Red to Red, Black to Black for the H1 kits. The H4 kits you cannot get wrong as they only plug in 1 way.
3. The bulb adapters (if used) are not supposed to be a tight fit around the bulb, the simply press the HID bulb into the headlight itself. The spring clip does the rest.
