Soooo.... I finally got around to installing my HID Depos and Im stumped on how the prefacelift corners (3 wires) should be rewired to the facelift headlights (looks like only 2 wires)... I couldnt find anything, does anyone know what I am talking about?

Dunno what you're on about, buddy. When I swapped some Valeo facelifts into my pre-facelift I just used the existing bulb holder. Should twist straight into the new housings.

Just install the prefacelift corner bulb holder into the Depos instead of using the ones that came in them.

yep, I used the stock corner lights by just snipping off a tab on each - after that they should lock in.

Went to the junk yard and got a couple of pre facelift bulb holders for 1$. They were 33$ EACH at the dealer.....[rolleyes] Thanks guys. How did you guys mount the headlights to your prefacelift cars securely? I only was able to screw in the top tabs and they are able to shake when closing the hood (and im assuming when I go over bumps)... Im thinking zip ties??

we're both in the same boat. My headlights still shudder sometimes when I go over bumps

i used double sided foam tape to secure the headlights to the core support. Ghetto but it keeps it from shaking over bumps, drove me nuts
