I have a 2006 ST-1 and I want to buy a set of xenons that are from the same year but ST-3 will they fit straight in or will I have to do some sort of conversion if it works out expensive then I will not bother
It only states that if they ARE fitted, they MUST work. Not that you NEED them. I've been told by a few testers that it'll fail without them, but I can't see how. The only issue is that if you do fit the Xenons, the only way you can adjust them is by lifting the bonnet and doing it manually. Not something you'll want to do when three of your mates hop in the back seat, which means you'll blind oncoming drivers.Vehicles equipped with High Intensity Discharge (HID) or LED dipped beam headlamps may be fitted with headlamp washers and a suspension or headlamp self levelling system. Where such systems are fitted, they must work; however, it is accepted that it may not be possible to readily determine the functioning of self levelling systems. In such cases, the benefit of the doubt must be given.
Note that it doesn't mention missing.Reasons for Rejection - A headlamp levelling or cleaning device inoperative or otherwise obviously defective.
Not sure if anyone has done it properly, but you're looking at a lot of loom work which would mean stripping the dash. If you can do it yourself then it won't be too expensive I'd imagine. It's the labour charges that'll kill you!Out of interest how expensive is this to retrofit properly ? Has anyone on here done it ?
ford at the moment wont use the new ac gas as there are floors in the testing on the basis of polution and dangerous to the occupants in the event of an accidentits a requirement that the cars must be fitted with headlight wash and level sensors for when the cars are first built to get type approval. Just like DRL's on new build cars from 2009/10 onwards. Although cars with an older chassis pan such as the Focus that is classed as a "redeveloped car" the ruels dont seem to apply. This si sthe case with the new Vauxhall Mokka. its based on a Corsa D platform and therefore can use R134a aircon gas and not the new butane based AC gas.
I cant see there being any issues with fitting the factory xenon headlights to a car as its been fitted after production. The original bulbs are not blue like some of the chav sets on ebay. As if the lights are deemed to be too blue that can also fail the mot but thats down to the tester. As fr the self leveling i would connect that to the manual lamp adjust circuit so it can be altered off the switch in the car.
im sure the wiring plug is different i maybe wrong but if i remember correctly mine was different to a base focus there might be a jumper loom you could fit i will ask tomorrow@converted Chris is it easy connect to the manual lamp adjusters or will it be hard work I don't want to put like u say the chav sets u buy on eBay but I don't want to spend loads will the factory xenons go straight in if they do I can sort out the manual adjust at a later date
