Remove headlight mask


Remove protective packaging from the H4 LED Headlight. Shown with pigtail.


Remove H4 mounting base from LED. The base is the secret to getting an LED to work with an H4. The H$ typically uses spring loaded wires to hold the halogen or LED in the headlight. This wire is difficult to get around a heatsink or a fan on older technology. The LED is keyed to the H4 base such that it can only be inserted one direction.


Remove rubber dust boot. Stock H4 halogen in place


Squeeze wire retainer and lift, remove stock H4 haologen. Comparison shot of stock H4 halogen with connector and the H4 LED headlight.


Insert LED H4 base, check for proper fit, ie right size tabs in the correct position.


Squeeze wire retainer and tighten on H4 LED base.


Position rubber dust boot over H4 base and headlight bucket.


Insert LED headlight into H4 base and rotate until detent position. This locks the LED headlight into the H4 base.


Connect pigtail to H4 LED headlight and reinstall mask. Picture of LED headlight with mask installed.


Enjoy the white light!
