    HID Conversion on Nurb, Any Help?

    Never touched a Mk5... so no idea how the HID conversions work, i no they also run on canbus so need some kind of work around for bulb failure etc...?

    Anyone done this before to a mk5, or a nurb if its any different? and fancys giving a fellow member a hand in leicester area?

    ive not done a mk5 before, im sure someone will correct me, but i can only talk from my mk4

    remove old bulb

    place new one in headlight

    plug the cable into the "silver box" then on the original wiring for the orignial bulb, have a look for it, and on the new cables for the HIDs you should have some spade ends, they should slide into the old wiring, thats how it gets the power to turn on.

    now if none of this looks/ sounds right, then dont do it, im talking about a Mk 4.
