    Hi Guys,

    I know this may have been posted hundreds of times before but I cant find anything relating to my problem.

    I've found a couple of guides and they describe what seems to be different head lights to mine. I can find nowhere to fit the adaptor plates to keep the bulb in.

    Could someone point me in the right direction or to the relevant guide, would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your help bud, do I take the metal thing that used to hold the bulb in place off?

    Disconnect the old bulb holder and remove it complete with bulb, feed the wires on the new hid bulb through the holder then put in place where original standard bulb holder was and twist into place.

    That bit doesn't look like it comes off? But I'll give a try tomorrow, thanks for your help!

    I unclipped the metal clip sort of thing and took the bulb out. The clip is still there and it connects to some shiny metal cover. I need to see how someone else has installed theirs so I can get a clearer picture.

    Maybe you could take a picture and post it up as I'm a little confused, I've seen the clip on other lights but not on E46's
