Removal
   
Head lamps become very hot during use; do not touch them or attach any hardware immediately after turning them off.
   
The head lamp bulb should not be removed from the head lamp assembly until just before installing a new bulb.
Leaving the head lamp bulb removed for an extended period of time may degrade the head lamp bulb performance.
Contaminants may enter the head lamp assembly where they can settle on the lens and reflector.
Never turn on the head lamps with the bulb removed from the head lamp assembly.
Head Lamp
1.
Disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
2.
Remove the front bumper cover.

Installation
1.
Install the head lamp assembly.
2.
Connect the head lamp connector.
3.
Connect the negative (-) battery terminal.
Replacement
   
Turn the head lamp switch off to avoid high voltage.
   
HID lamp shall not be used on other cars. (This may cause fire.)
Fire may occur when HID lamp initially lights due to the fact that arc-discharge generates high voltage (max. 20,000V) and high current (12-13A), and are different from the halogen lamp specification.
Install the dust cover after confirming the locking state between bulb and bulb holder.
When testing the HID head lamp, turn the power on or off with switch between power supply and lamp because of high voltage.
Do not operate the head lamp switch with the bulb not installed, because it generates spark momently.

Confirm the ballast installation
Inspection
1.
Check the battery voltage. (Low beam will be on when the battery voltage is above 9V.)
2.
Check the fuse and relay.
3.
Check the polarity of ballast. (If the polarity is changed, low beam does not light on.)
4.
Check that the bulb connector is connected securely.
5.
Visually check bulb (no filament) : damaged glass, damaged upper parts and lower parts of glass tube.
6.
After (1)~(5), replace the ballast and the ignitor. (ballast assembly).

Characteristic
1.
Durable for vibration as there is no filament.
2.
HID lamps have longer lifetime than halogen lamps.
3.
Does not operate if polarity is changed.
4.
Operating input voltage : 9-16V
Head Lamp Aiming Instructions
[Mechanical aiming]
The head lamps should be aimed with the proper beam-setting equipment, and in accordance with the equipment manufacturer''s instructions.
   
If there are any regulations pertinent to the aiming of head lamps in the area where the vehicle is to be used, adjust so as to meet those requirements.
Alternately turn the adjusting gear to adjust the head lamp aiming. If beam-setting equipment is not available, proceed as follows :
1.
Inflate the tires to the specified pressure and remove any loads from the vehicle except the driver, spare tire, and tools.
2.
The vehicle should be placed on a level ground.
3.
Draw vertical lines (Vertical lines passing through respective head lamp centers) and a horizontal line (Horizontal line passing through center of head lamps) on the screen.
4.
With the head lamp and battery in normal condition, aim the head lamps so the brightest portion falls on the vertical lines.
A : Vertical
