TRS Tips: Retrofitting the Morimoto Mini H1 6.0 into 9006, 9007, H11, H13 Headlights
Without the ability to use an adapter plate for the Morimoto Mini's - a bit
of extra work will have to be done to allow the projector to fit and lock
onto the reflector bucket. Additional work will also be needed to align the
rotation of the projector.
1) Most reflector buckets have a deep bulb holder area that's too much for
the threaded shaft on the projector to fit through, while still allowing
the lock ring to fully tighten. By cutting or sanding down the "butt" of
the reflector, you will free up a lot of space so that the threaded shaft
of the projector can easily fit all the way through the reflector's
pre-existing hole and all the hardware can be re-installed.
2) Because the adapter plate also does the alignment in an H7 or H4
application, you will need to manually align the projector. We recommend
re-installing the headlights onto your car with the projectors installed
(but the lock-rings only semi-tightened, and with the front lens covers not
yet reinstalled) and turning on the headlights so that you can see the beam
pattern aimed on a wall in front of the car. If the beam is anything but
level, you can simply grab the projector from the front, rotate it, and
then tighten the lock-rings all the way from there.

2:06 Put the headlight frame clip back in to place.
2:13 Mount the bulb in the Mini H1 projector with the clip. Connect the

TRS Tips: Morimoto Mini D2S 2.0 Bi-xenon Retrofit Guide
The Morimoto Mini D2S is hugely popular for its ease of installation,
fantastic high beam performance, and compatibility with the industry
standard D2S bulb type.
Complete Retrofit System:
Step 1: Remove all hardware except for the big silicone grommet and then
insert threaded shaft through the front of the reflector bowl.
Step 2: Install H4 adapter plate, with the notched side at 12:00 to ensure
projector's rotation is level. (Skip this step for non H4 applications,
manual rotation adjustment is required)
Step 3: Use a wrench to tighten the lock ring onto the back of the adapter
plate. Do not over-tighten, or completely tighten until you are sure this
will be the last time the projector will be mounted (the threads will
deform and lock on once fully tightened) Add the rubber washer behind the
Step 4: Install the D2S bulb into the back of the projector with the return
wire facing down. Then rotate the metal split- ring washer over the base of
the bulb, and add the angled rubber washer behind that (angled side down).
Step 5: Clamp the bulb into place using the bulb cap, this only needs to be
Step 6: Test fire the bi-xenon solenoid mechanism 30-40 times to be sure
that the hinges are still sliding as they should be. Since this mechanism
is made of fairly thin metal, it is important not to disturb it during the
installation to avoid future sticking issues.
Step 7: Install shroud using JB weld and centric rings.
Please see our other videos on opening and re-sealing headlights, mounting
shrouds, adding halos, aiming, and wiring for more details on those steps.
