    Default light force hid diy conversion

    thought id give this a shot seen as one of my bulbs popped when i turned it on lol

    did some reading online looking at differnt kits people sell all seemed way to pricey for what they where
    and having way to many hid bulbs kicken around my shop i decided to give it a go
    removed the broken bulb
    drilled out the rivet holding the heat sink in place
    drilled out the ceramic bulb holder
    pulled it all apart so i was left with the alum slug
    drilled out the slug to accept the bare hid (previously removed from the h4 socket it was in all press fit so it came apart very easy)
    it is a tight friction fit for the bulb to slug
    made sure the bar on the bulb was striaght up as mentioned in some other hid threads
    used a small screw to replace the rivet i had to drill to get the slug out
    slid it all back in the 240 housing routing the wires the same way as factory

    I cant belive a bulb blew wjen you turned them on. What are the chances of that. I used them for 2 years and no blown bulbs. Sorry to hear about that, I would have replaced it. HiD's are way cooler though! Cant wait to see the light thoes bad boys put out.
