You need to read up on the generic conversion. Its not as simple as it
Yes there is a 20,000 volt ballast that goes behind the bumper in each
corner. The lights slip in but then there are several problems.
- Beam alignment needs to be done so that the light point forward and not up
- The onboard ECU needs to be told it is a Xenon fitted car.
- there is no washer on the bumper (I might be wrong) so it doesnt comply
strictly with that requirement
- the vacuum level adjustment for towing doesnt have a linkage, so if your
rear is squat then the lamps will point into the eyes of other drivers.
Having said that ..... the linkage can be made to work, so that you do at
least have attitude control.
have a read of this .......
The problem is the o.e. reflector. H.I.D. headlights have very different
reflectors with a different pattern. Your o.e. headlights are designed for
halogen lighting. The conversion kits do not have newly designed reflectors
for Bosch, o.e., Mercedes headlights. P.
