    Default Hids question

    Hi folks,

    Bought myself a set of 50w 4300k Hids from hids direct.

    The box came with 2 ballasts and 2 cancellors.

    I have searched the forum and looked at the how-to's but i need to know - do i need to fit the cancellors or will it be ok without?

    My car is a 2003 2.2Dti

    Many thanks

    Did you ask for vectra C specific ones? If so then I would imagine it will be fine without the cancellors.

    Just fit em on, makes no difference but I fitted mine to be safe

    Best and easyest way to fit is bumper off and headlight units out!

    Many thanks,

    Yeh they are Vec C specific.

    Only reason i ask is the "installation manual" (and i use that term loosely), doesn't even mention the cancellors!

    Thanks for replies

    I was thinking about taking the bumper off (only because it scares me as i've never done it)

    I have an idea where i'm going to put the ballasts, but where did you put/mount the cancellers?

    Yeah, preface does not need to remove the bumper. As above, one in the fuse/battery box, the other in the wing or where ever you can fit it. To get the air box out, remove the top lid with the screws, remove the sensor (Do not turn your car on with it off) Then pull the bottom part of the airbox out, it is only clipped in, you may have to remove a drain as well. Very easy mate.
