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.
1:18 Remove the bulb glare cap.
1:34 To mount the Bi-xenon projector, break the glare cap holder away.
2:05 Remove the bulb clip holder from the projector.
2:10 Mount the Mini Gatling Gun shroud with the 4 supplied screws.
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
thin ring is used to give more thread length for the nut.
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.
5:28 Place the H7 high beam splitter to connect the solenoid for high beam

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)

together with the H7 halogen high beam
4:49 Drill a 20-22mm hole in the bulb cap to guide the wires through
5:16 The wires will be connected to the ballast and H7 low beam plug.
Because the Audi A4 B7 has Canbus, this is the only wiring setup that can

positive) and black to brown (- negative)
6:07 Click the cap back on, you are ready to do mount the headlight to the

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.
TRS Tech: BMW E46 Bi-xenon Projector Headlight Retrofit with Morimoto Mini 6.0
We demonstrate the use of our Bi-xenon Mini H1 Stage III kit on a BMW E46.
Very little modification is needed to perform the install. Only a little
bit of trimming to the interior of the bulb holder and a small hole needed
to be drilled in the stock reflector.
Performance and looks are vastly improved compared to stock with this setup
We used our Morimoto Mini H1 6.0 Bi-xenon projectors, E46-R shrouds, 9006
Standalone Canbus harnesses, high beam splitters, the Morimoto 3Five AMP
ballasts, and Morimoto 3Five H1 bulbs.

Volkswagen Transporter T5 Bi-xenon projector retrofit headlight tutorial
Tutorial for Volkswagen Transporter T5 (1st generation) Bi-xenon projector
retrofit. We used a DEPO headlight for this retrofit (better price than
Projektzwo headlights). They are cheap, easy to retrofit (not permasealed
as the original T5 headlight, so they open easy with heat), and they are
0:01 remove the lens clips
0:15 put the headlight in preheated oven (200 degrees C, turn the oven off
when you put the headlight in it, because most ovens have one heat emitting
side which can locally melt the headlight unit)
0:31 Bake your headlight! :-) 3 minutes for the first time
0:40 After 3 minutes, rotate the headlight, to make sure that it's equally
0:52 Again 3 minutes in the oven.
1:20 Use a flat head screw driver to pry the headlight open.
1:35 Don't use to much force, work patiently
2:08 Gently remove the lens completely from the housing
2:30 Make sure the sealant doesn't stick to chrome parts which are visible
to the eye when installed on the car, this looks ugly :-)
3:25 First insert the wires through the H7 bulb hole
3:58 Then insert the shaft of the Bi-xenon projector
4:20 Place the H7 adapter ring
4:28 Spring washer
4:31 Locking nut, tighten it! Now the projector is ready :-)
5:05 Put the lens back on the headlight
5:56 Make sure it fits correct
6:20 Mount the clips back again
6:40 Bake it again to soften the sealant again, to make sure it will be
7:03 This time only 3 minutes in total
7:12 Check the lens that it fits tight, apply some pressure with pliers.
After this, connect the wires. You can use wire taps to connect the wires
of the Bi-xenon solenoid to the High beam wire, and optionally the angel

Morimoto Mini H1 HID Projectors with 5000K Morimoto Bulbs
STABILIZED VIDEO HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_z-j2b-FH6A
These are plug and play, easy to install projectors which make no excuse
for people to install PnP HID bulbs into their halogen housings and blind
everyone on the road with their stupid smurf blue lights. These projectors
are superb in lighting, width and cutoff color. So far they are the best
plug and play projector on the market. They do require some modification
to get them perfect, but I am very happy with the results.

Morimoto vs. Philips D2S HID Headlight Bulb Comparison from TheRetrofitSource.com
Morimoto vs. Philips light bulbs: an overview of the similarities,
differences, and a performance stress test. The equipment shown is the
Morimoto 5000K D2S 35w bulb on the left, and the Philips 85122+ 35w D2S
bulb on the right, both powered by the Morimoto 35w digital ballasts from
TRS. This video helps to illustrate that cost does not always evenly equate
to quality, so whereas the Philips bulbs are very high quality, the
Morimoto units for half the price offer better value.
