Installing my hids and having a hard time installing the ballast on the passenger side. There is no room. I purchased the xenondepot kit. Ideas?
Xtreme. I am trying not to zip tie but looks like i will have to.What ballast? Their slim or the Xtreme? If it's the slim, you shouldn't have any problem putting it directly underneath the headlight housing.
If it's the Xtreme ballast, think about putting in on the support for the bumper, or underneath the flat part, where the bottom screw for the headlight is. You'll probably have to zip tie it down there though.
Bumpers still on. Might take it off.Did you take your bumper off or are you trying to install the ballast through the wheel? Honestly its so much easier if you just take your bumper off - takes like 20-30mins at most and then you can install the ballasts with ease in convenient spots, run your wiring and then slap the bumper back on and call it a day.
As far as relay I could not find anyone that had problems. I used a sheet metal screw to secure my ballasts. Still looking on a spot for the passenger side. The pic that orient posted has a bracket in the pic. My si does not have it. :iorun: I am thinking of installing it up top in the engine bay and routing wires down below. Would heat be an issue?read orient express's sticky up top... he gives good locations to mount ballasts
i dont think the relay is necessary, its a well debated topic... no definitive answer... but i didnt use one and ive no problems yet
i would recommend not ziptieing your ballast... it needs a good electrical grounding with a nut and bolt
