    Question Depo Angel eye wiring diagram / Level Adjusters / HID wiring fitment

    I know these questions have probably been asked loads of times, but I've just spent 20 minutes looking through the first 9 pages of the search results and I haven't been able to fully answer all of my questions so here goes:

    1) Has anyone got a wiring diagram for the Depo lights? As I've brought a set second hand and they didn't come with any instructions. From what I remember there are 4 connectors coming out of the unit (one set of wires is yellow and black one is green and black and so)

    I know I could just swap the plugs over from the original lights and see which ones come one, but I would prefer an actual wiring diagram.

    2) Do you need to swap the headlight level adjusters over from the original lights? If anyone has got a picture too that would be great, as I couldn't see where they attached to the new units if required.

    3) When fitting HID's do you need to put a hole through the back of the rubber cover to feed the wires through or can they be brought through some where else? As I am concerned about them steaming up with a hole through the rubber cover.

    4) I have read that you "need to ditch the FK rubber gaskets round the headlights as they are utter shit and use OE ones" Is that the rubber gasket for the headlight bulb or the cover over the back of the light units?


    Thanks in advance

    Sorry to be a pain with this guys.

    I think some of the questions in here would be good for an Angel eye how to along with the LEDs for the halo's etc... as there are literally pages and pages on this topic.

    Cheers

    Mark I don;t remember there being any instructions when I got my brand new FK's and I got the headlights and main beam wrong first time on one side. TBH this is the only mistake you can make as every other connection is different;

    Indicator will only plug into the indicator plug

    Same goes for the side light

    You'll have 2 connectors the same, one of which will have a white wire and one will have a yellow, just match these up to the 2 same connectors on the car by the wire colours also

    The adjuster doesn't need to be swapped over but is easy enough to do. At the bottom on the light you'll see a piece of plastic you can turn 90 degrees and then hook out, your adjuster will just replace this. You can see it inbetween the two rubber covers in this pic (the grey lump)



    I took my HID wires out the bottom of a ruber cover, using insulating tape to hold them down and then slotted the rubber cover over the top so I didn't cut it at all

    I never had a problem with the rubber with any of the rubber gaskets on my lights

    I believe the white adjuster in the pic is up and down with the one between the two rubber caps is left and right

    Are those for the headlight and main beam? If so won't you only be using one for main beam, as the HID wires are fed through separately?

    How would they be adjusted otherwise? By screw driver or similar?

    Yeah good point, white wires are main beam then

    Screwdriver will adjust them the once, obviously the motor will just give you the internal electronic adjustment back

    OMG what a pain to fit LED's! I knew it wasn't going to be easy, but the standard wiring is awful. I ended up re-soldering 2 connectors as the wires fell out of them as I was refitting them. Anyway they look good now. Just need to get round to fitting them with the HID's etc...

    Thanks for you help again.
