    I thought exactly the same when i did mine, but it is do-able! I found the best way was to connect them up to the car and turn the sidelights on, which also helps making sure you have all the LEDs are working, then poking that one in with a long screwdriver and you will be able to see if it is in or not if the halo ring lights up in that area!

    It is VERY fiddely, but it can be done!

    do them off the car - put the leds in - connect up to make sure they work - swap leds around if required - then refit them - you dont have to remove the whole bumper - take the 3 bolts out the bottom of the bumper - undo the 2 bolts from the arch and pull it outwards to access the lower headlamp bolt - same for the other side

    lol i would have said £20 5 mins ago...but i just got one of them in...1 long long tweezers, 1 samsung s500i cameraphone light, and 3 messed up knuckles later!!

    this is very tricky to say the least! much harder than you guys made out at first 1 more tuff buggger to go and the rest will be easy...thanks for the moral support

    btw...how do i power them without putting them on the car? i.e. to test them?

    Pull out the side light wire from standard lights, take the plug out, leaving jsut the loom. Then plug in the angel eye.

    I take it these are the FK jobbies? mine are the Ultra ones, fitted the L.E.D'S to mine yesterday, dead easy, the l.e.d's sit in a rubber plug, and then just push straight into the back of the headlight, 7 in each
