Question DEPO HID Xenon headlight installation guide?

Hello fellas,

I have a 2003 325i sedan and recently decided to upgrade my OEM halogen headlight assembly to an HID Xenons with Halos and so on! I got the headlight assembly delivered today, however with no instructions in sight! Does anyone have any info on how to install these 'bad boys'?

Thanks!

very easy, loosen the corner light with a phillips screwdriver then pull it out. pull out the lower headlight trim, then remove the four 8mm screws, two on top of the headlamp assmebly then the one 8mm screw behind it and the last is towards the grills. once you remove those four screws the headlamp should be able to be removed easily

good luck

Just watch your heallamp washers, as you pull the lower trim out, washer fluid will prob start to leak out. You could always empty the reservoir first.

I wouldn't empty the container, I'd remove it with the fluid in. Just make sure you have something to plug the lower pump holes.
