    Vehicle : Honda Civic

    Trim : SE,Panoramic Roof and Power Mirrors

    Engine : 1.8 Vtec

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 64500

    Default

    I found the inside of a roll of insulating tape was 25mm so just drew a hole with a pencil and then cut it out with a stanley knife.
    The 2 spade connectors connect to the original socket that fitted to the original bulbs, then you just connect all the connectors together(they all only fit one way) the last one connects to the HID bulbs. Did you get cancellers with your kit?

    It's as simple as he says mate, but be sure all the polarities are round the right way as the plugs can be connected to either side you need to make sure they all line up or the lamps won't light!

    If you got the Vauxhall kit from them then the cancellers are built into teh ballast's I believe.

    My package from the was attempted delivery yesterday but was at work. Collecting tomorrow for fitting at the weekend.

    The spade connectors go into the light wiring inside the housing
    Connect the power lead to the power lead
    Connect the rubber bulb fitting to one side of the cancellor, connect the cancellor to the Ballast.

    With me?

    "8.Fix well salver by bandage. ( Note : installing ballast should be far from engine and place of temperature.

    9. Pressure wire of HID light should connect pressure wire of ballast. Make low pressure wire of ballast connects with 12v power wire of original car light. If added resistant, the low pressure wire of ballast should connect with resistant."

    Can anyone translate this?
    So the alarm cancellors are wired in line with the lights? ( more to mount somewhere )
    what are the two square-ish metal clips for? not mentioned in instructions or confusing diagram?
    which is + red or black?

    I think the bin is the best place for the manual

    Try without the cancellors 1st because mine wouldnt work at all with them but there perfect without them.

    The metal clips are to fix the hid bulb into the holder - but u only need to use them if your bulb is held in with a metal clip iirc

    Red is +

    Just plug the wire that comes from the ballast into the wiring that connected to the original bulb

    Take a look through the thread below because i was just as confused as you before i fitted them

    cant remember if it is held in with a clip or not, will check when I have a look.
    Shall I try without the cancellors first?
    Where did you fit the ballasts on yours?
