    GSI Sharkeyes

    Right, i have a GSi which came standard with Sharkeyes, now 1 has sprung a leak and blown the ballast which is situated underneath the light. Crap design! I replaced the ballast at a cost of £50 and also re-sealed the light with silicone, it lasted 2 weeks and blown it again.

    I baught some Angeleys off this site, and they have HID fitted, now when i went to fit earlier i realised my new lights have 2 cables coming out of the ballast; 2 wires coming out of main beam and loads of wires connected to the angeleyes- take it these are the sidelight.

    How do i connect these up? as all i have on my standard light unit is 1 big plug with loads of cables. Any help much appreciated-

    Also the there is only the housing for the indicator in the new lights, do i take them off the old 1s?

    Get a standard Astra headlight loom and solder it on to your GSI plugs

    My GSi plug is 1 big plug which fits onto the sharkeye. I dont know which wire is what? i Think there is 8 wires in all doing 1 plug and pplugs into the sharkeye. would this be
    2wires- HID
    2wires- Sidelight
    2 wires- Indicator
    2 wires - ???

    I have a seperate plug for the main beam i think it is. (Looks like the Angeleyses i baught require 4 sets of these plugs)

    Is this what a normal astra would have?
