OEM HID Projector Retrofit
I have had some people ask me for pictures of how I put the e55 bi-xenon projectors into my halogen housings. I haven't been able to until this morning when I had to take one of them apart because of some condensation. I'm not very good at how-to's but maybe the pictures will help explain a little better. Just to be clear, I did this on my 2007 Maxima. I'm sure that the older 6th gen's would basically be the same but I am not certain.
Step 1 - Follow the instructions for baking your headlight open. You have to seperate the lens from the rest of the headlight because the halogen projector is huge and won't come out any other way. Here is a comparison picture of the 2 projectors. e55 bi-xenon on the left, halogen on the right.
Step 2 - Once the assembly and the lens have been seperated, you need to remove the 4 silver screws holding the halogen projector in. This picture is of the bi-xenon projector but the screws are in the exact same location. They are removed from the backside of the headlight.
Step 5 - Now that the halogen projector is out, you can put the bracket back in place and tighten the adjustment screw so it is held securely.
Step 7 - Make sure any plastic shavings are cleaned out of the assembly and put the lens back on following the headlight baking instructions.
Do the same for the other side and you will have much more reliable and better lighting than just throwing in a HID kit into your halogen projectors. Hope this was some help to you all.
