I need a "how to" for a total headlight swap for my p11.
I purchased OEM JDM headlights and they just arrived.
I do not want to break any clips or wire harness attachments.

Does anyone have a detailed "how to" with photos.
What is the best tool for removing the wire harnesses from the bulb assembly.

thanks.

if you have never removed your headlights before you will need to pull really hard in order to break free the green plastic tabs that hold the headlights on, there is no need to reinstall the green plastic pieces

Thanks, i found that thread. it talks about the HID swap not the regular.

I have the drivers side done, what a [email protected] The pigtails on the JDM parts were only 1/4 inch long.

question - is their suposed to be a light on in the corners when the headlights are on?
I only get the blinker??
Mains and Highbeams work fine.

try searching next time.
I can not believe what i did. I must have swapped the low beam and high beam wires. The highs are now on and the lows go on when i push the stalk...

CRAP CRAP :dead::zoinks:

i have to take the darn thing apart for a third time and "i assume" just switch the two red wires. Can someone confirm this for me>

on the passenger side, it's below/behind the big black wire harness wrapped in plastic/electric tape. Where the headlight curves towards the inside of the headlight, look directly below it.

On the Driver's side, i just dig my socket around and find it magically. It's located in the same spot, but this side is slightly easier to get to.. You might also need a 2" extension
