    You may be desperate but please give people longer than 45 minutes to reply

    Ignoring the diagrams you just need HID plugged into the ballest then Ballest plugged into the headlight plug that goes to your angel eyes (the one with the yellow wire in)

    Sometimes the yellow and brown wire in this plug needs swapping around to get it to work

    Yes the cars loom

    Probably not that easy to swap tbh, most will just cut them and rejoin

    it was more of a firm push than a force

    when i fitted mine i connected the HID bulbs to the ballast and then connected the ballast to the cars wiring loom

    the bulbs wouldnt turn on

    I then took the cars connector off the connector on the ballast and fitted it the other way round

    it all worked perfectly

    EDIT: ignore me. posted at the same time as you
    good to hear that it worked for you
