    Installing HID

    Astra G Estate 2000 X reg

    I have an H7 HID kit for the dipped beams, but can't work out how the supplied bulbs are retained in place since there are no springs to hold the bulb in. The exisiting bulb is held in a fitting which is rotated through 60 degrees to lock.

    Have I been sold the wrong kit?

    Thanks,

    john

    as above matey - u have NOT been supplied the wrong kit - u just need to re-use the original brown bulb holder but modified it somewhat to as to retain the HID bulb in place and have the wiring poke out the back etc.

    See the above how-to for details.
