Thank you for the fuse box tip. Although I couldn't see the pics in your post (looks like they are expired), I installed my HIDs the same way and it saved me a lot of hassle compared to going through the fender or taking off the bumper. Worked well for me. It is a tight squeeze and if you have really large hands it's going to be tough.I actually just completed this HID conversion without removing the bumper or the wheel wells! I removed the air filter flexible intake hose, then the cover, and the Fuse Box cover.. Then removed the 2 10mm bolts holding the Fuse box in place. That gave me an extra precious inch or so to get my hand through to the H11 low beam bulb.
Does anybody notice the ballasts buzz at startup? The buzzing goes away after a few seconds but I'm curious if this is normal? FWIW I installed Morimoto XB35s with the relay harness.
