I really enjoyed making this video and I LOVE driving my Element at night
now. This video is a step by step process of how to install one of these
kits. I've put in some what I hope are helpful hints along the way to make
the job easier for you. Here are the links mentioned in the video
including the one for the kit that I used. Remember be sure to check your
local laws concerning installing a kit like this before you commit just to
be sure you'd be in compliance.

Headlight lens restoration using regular toothpaste is real. It doesn't
take much effort, but the type or brand of toothpaste does make a
difference. Watch to see the results i came up with.

Does triggering relays directly from headlight connector, harm the
The answer is yes. Activating relays is done by connecting voltage to a
coil, which in turn creates a magnetic field. When voltage is removed from
the relay, the energy that is stored in the coil collapses, and will send
current the other way, by increasing voltage to several hundred volts. A
small arc will be visible between the contact elements of the headlight
switch. Over time, the switch will only work intermittently, and will
eventually fail. That's why a serial diode is essential to protect the
Here's the current path to a properly connected H.I.D. retrofit electrical
The heart of most of the electrical work is at the H.I.D. relay. The relay,
the most common is a Bosch type, has 5 terminals, of which 4 are of
interest to you.
Terminals 84 and 85, sometimes labeled 85 and 86, is the relay coil.
Remember to install an in line diode between these two terminals. Most
newer relays have this diode internally. As we've said before, the diode
protects the headlight switch from damage due to arching.
Shown in this video, terminal 84 is connected to ground. You may connect
either of the relay coil terminals to ground. This is the activation
