    Default Idiots guide to wiring in original Vauxhall Xenon headlights required please.

    I've been through this thread and I'm still not 100% clear on exactly what's involved. I know that there's a bit of rewiring required to retro-fit the Xenon headlights, but I've not seen the specific info, or even more helpfully any pictures, showing what's required.

    I've got the headlights sat in the garage - been sat there for months due to lack of time (something to do with having a new born and a toddler! lol) and not clear what was needed to be done with wiring.

    Sooo, can someone please tell me exactly what is required wiring wise to wire in the pre-face Xenons in place of the pre-face Halogens.

    I have Vaux-Com so I can do that bit of programming myself.

    Cheers

    If not going up to plymouth you mean lol?

    Just re-read the mexican's thread again, very simple really, just a chop-over on the levelling plug and an extra earth to the headlight plug.

    When I first got them (the headlights) I was looking at going that route - sourcing and fitting the axle sensors etc, etc. but TBH at the moment I just want to get the damn things on and linked into the normal manual levellers, if that was an option. Then maybe look at doing the auto-levelling in the future.

    I've already got the complete units m8 -or was that for the benefit of anyone else?
