0:01 Bake the headlight. We use a big carton box with a heatgun. We put the
headlight on small boxes so the hot air will be blown under the headlight,
not only on one side.
0:09 In this case we use a 500W heatgun for 15 minutes.
0:14 Start to pry the headlight. In this case it is perma-sealed, so the
seal doesn't really get soft, you will need to cut the sealing with the
0:37 After working a couple of minutes the headlight housing cools down,
heat it up again for a few minutes.
0:40 Work with patience and not too much force. This headlight took us 20
to 30 minutes to open properly.
1:04 Cut the remaining permaseal off the headlight lens using a sharp
1:10 Scrape the remainign permaseal out of the headlight channel using a
flathead screw driver.

2:19 Remove the black plug from the solenoid wires.
2:21 Insert the wires through the glare cap opening.
2:24 Place the rubber ring on the Mini H1 projector shaft. In this case the

2:28 Place the projector in the reflector.
2:32 Place the H7 adapter ring.
2:42 Place the nut to secure the projector.
2:53 Secure the nut using needle nose pliers.
3:00 Place back the solenoid plug on the wires.
3:17 In this case we needed to bend the bulb clip holder a bit to fit
3:34 Mount the bulb clip holder with the 3 screws
3:42 Put the Butyl in the headlight channel for a proper seal
4:00 Press it down with your fingers
4:10 Clean fingerprints and dust off
4:28 In this case, customer wanted the headlight insert black
4:30 Press the lens on the housing.
4:33 Heat the headlight again for the sealant to become soft.
4:38 Press the lens back on the housing.
4:46 Gently squeeze the lens on the housing, make sure all the lens clips
click back on.
5:05 Insert the H1 HID bulb in the projector.
5:12 Place the clip to secure the bulb.

1:14 Remove the H7 halogen bulb cap
1:20 break off the cap channel with a plier
1:28 Place the small rubber washer over the projector shaft
1:33 Insert the Bi-xenon solenoid wires through the cap shaft and insert
the projector through the fitting
1:43 Place the H7 adapter ring and secure the projector nut
1:59 Don't tighten it fully yet, you might want to do some final rotational
adjustment when the headlights are mounted on the car
2:04 Mount the bulb holder
2:20 Click the shroud centric ring inside the shroud (this shroud has been
modified for fitment)

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.
Bi-xenon Retrofit Timelapse
This is me doing a Morimoto Mini bi-xenon HID retrofit into a 99-01 Subaru
Mini H1 5.0 Bi-xenon projector
This projector is by far the most popular Bi-xenon projector in the
retrofit world. These projectors came out late 2010 and are already famous,
especially in the United States. They are famous because of their easy
installation and at the same time great performance!
The performance of these Mini H1 projectors can be compared with other
popular full size projectors. Being designed specifically for a HID light
source, they have a great beam pattern. A wide, evenly lit beam. Their
cutoff line is very sharp and colorful, and has a DOT step. The high beam
also produces a good amount of light to see much further on the road.
Only 11,5 centimeters of space is needed inside of the headlight for these
beautiful units. They fit in H4, H7, H11, H13, 9006 and 9007 headlights.
Open your headlight, mount the projector with the provided hardware and
close up your headlight. No drill or dremel needed! We made a detailed
installation video. Watch the video in full HD here.
The wiring harness which comes standard with this kit uses the factory
connectors of your vehicle. Your vehicle's wiring harness will stay in
The Mini H1's comes standard with the mini Gatling Gun shrouds which bolt
on. Like in the video, you can paint the shrouds in matte black, or any
color you want!

Cobalt MH1 Retrofit Part 3
This is part 3 on how I retrofitted my stock Cobalt headlights with
Morimoto Mini H1 Bi-Xenon projectors. This is not intended as a "How To"
but as a video journal. I am NOT responsible for any damages you may do to
your headlights, your car, or yourself.
Update: I am no longer using these projectors in my Cobalt. As of now,
they're sitting in my closet. I've upgraded to EvoX-Rs in 2013 and they're
are much better than the Mini-H1s in every way. The Mini-H1s are excellent
entry level projectors but I wanted even better and EvoX-Rs are just that.
The EvoX-R retrofit is a lot more involved since more cutting of the
reflector is required along with getting the aim and mounting just right.
