So I am utterly confused on how to hook up my headlights and I need some help. I am trying to figure out what i need to do with all these harnesses and stuff and im not sure where to cut what wheres as well as what wires to connect to where. And yes i am following the DIY. Any help would be appreciated.

This is the original headlight harness. It has 4 wires a white/black, white/green, yellow/black and a brown wire.

This is the blinker harness that has three wires. White/black, grey/black and brown.

And the harness that connects to the new depo's. its has a peach/red wire that i connected to the low beams, Peach/ blue for the high beams that also offshoots to the city lights as well as a yellow wire. Which i have all that figured out except how to hook up to the actual car for power.

the last 3 wires are for headlight leveling (you probably don't have this), the others I cant help with since it's been a while since i wired my euro's

that was directed at the OP...but if you're pre 99.5 you need to buy a new connector since the older style ones are round and will not fit

i thought this was to eliminate the connector. But yeah im 99.0. So is this the ecs connector everyone talks about.

yes you need to rewire your existing headlight connectors and you reuse the OEM bulb holders for the corner lights

u could use the one from the old headlight, just need to dremel a little bit of the edges, but when i had my 96 i just stuck it in there with force, works fine.

try it, cant understand man, its so easy to figure out once u have the headlight out.

good luck.
