I'm guessing you're trying to do the H7 retrofit?

First tool you'll need is a Dremel.

It's a somewhat tedious process of hollowing out your halogen bulb housing so that the bulb can slide through it. I believe the kit will come with a rubber piece that keeps the bulb snug in there.

Umnitza or JLevi have instructions written. You should contact one of them since they are the main vendors for Prolumen.

i installed it today.. thought it was alot harder then it was!!!

all i did was saw about four mill from the back.. then used a drill to cut abit of the back so the plastic grommet could fit snuggly, then use the drill in the front to shape the sides ,so the bulb slide in flush with the holder..

the kit is very good , recomended .. so bright though have to get projectors everyone is flashing me on the rd..

thanks all for your replys very much appreciated
