Hi everyone, this isn't exactly a write up since I forgot to take pictures of the process of taking apart the headlight assembly. This is more of a journal documenting my experience with an LED Headlight. This is the first time I've installed one. It was not difficult at all, it was pretty straight forward.
There are 4 bolts and two plastic rivets, once removed the headlight separates from the housing. Remove the rubber seal on the headlight, release the lock and remove the old bulb, insert the new one, lock, rubber, and its done.
I had to cut a slit on the boot to slide it over the heat sink on the back of the bulb, I don't think I've compromised the waterproofing and if I notice any moisture in my headlight I will figure something else out, until then it seals pretty well.
I wasn't paid to do a review so I'm not going to name drop which bulb I bought, but it was advertised to be rated at 3500 Lumens and 40 Watts. It's color temperature is 6500k. The light is very bright, way brighter than the stock headlight. Similar to putting an HID in regular housing, the cutoff is nonexistent. Aka very bad. The lowbeam LED outputs a similar amount of light to the stock halogen on High.
Lots of pics so I uploaded them all to a gallery.
It was still daytime outside so until it gets darker it's just garage pics, sorry. I haven't seen how it looks on the street yet.
Here are the pics.
Let me know if you guys have any questions!
