In Reply to: Anyone in the SFBA who can install these for me? posted by B. Wheaton on January 09, 2002 at 17:20:27:

If you can change your spark plugs and do a oil change it is so easy!
1.Unscrew the front grills, there is 2 screws on the bottom and 3 clips on the top.
2. Unscrew the 3 retaining screws on the head lamp carrier, the whole thing come out, unplug lights, your done. ONLY DO ONE SIDE!
3. Put the EURO lamps in, connect the low beam and make a connector for the high. screw in the 3 retainng screws.
4. Turn on the low beams and aim the EURO to the same plain as the other side, do the same for the high.

Repeat... That's it! Took me about 15min. Aiming is the hard part, I also killed the battery doing this, 2 100w lights one kill it fast.

Now here is the parts list for the factory High beam cover and lugs
63 12 8 357 401 x2
61 13 1 378 401 x2
61 13 1 376 202 x6
Mostly Dealer only parts.

Is there anyone here in the SF Bay Area who can install these things for me properly? If I had a clear set of instructions I'd just do it myself but there doesn't seem to be a consensus on what to do with these things.
