Is the outer ring for the Pred. Chromiums suppoesed to sit at an angle? Also, where do you route the wires from the rings into the back of the headlight housing?

no, its not supposed to sit at an angle. There are some threads covering your problem with facelifted sedans i think.. someone said either trim the headlight housing, or do not clip it in entirely. others just didtnt have a problem.. hope this helps. As far as routing the wires.. some people drill a hole.. there are some DIY's but i think there def. a way to get around drilling just not quite sure what it is.

Yeah, itlooks like I'm gonna have to trim the bezel a bit. Thanks! I went ahead and drilled a 1/4" hole for the wires. Does anyone have a diagram for running the wires?

I may be wrong but from what I have read I think the brown wire is the remote kit. It runs trough the firewall and into the passenger floor light, That should activate the preds when you unlock the car with the light. should know in about a week once mine come in.

In order to make it not sit at an angle, you need to slip the ring on just BEFORE the first clip.

The brown wire is the remote kit, that is run through the rubber grommet in the empty compartment of your engine bay and into the glove box. From there you can drop down the glove box by undoing the 6 screws that hold it in and quick connect it to the red/blue wire of the footwell lights

Again this should all be covered in the install guide provided by your vendor.
