Exclamation BI-Xenon HID INSTALL HELP!

Okay to install my new hids which are the hi/lows you have to slide the oem locking ring on now when putting it on it hits the square peice that the wires go in, the only thing i can think of is cutting a peice out of the ring to slide it on....

Is there an easier way?? doing this NOW so need help ASAP!

Thanks guys

I cut about 1/3 off that ring longwise. Then you slide the bulb in from the back, lock it in, and then put it into the back of the headlight housing, and lock the ring in.

not sure if you need pics of install or pics of the lights on lol didnt get any of install, but its fairly easy once you figure it out lol wiring kinda sucks i ran mine over the radiator.. ziptied control box to battery, if you want to see pics of the lights i got some crappy ones over on the exterior discusiion thread is headlights from fed ex or soemthing lol heres one of the pics though! however im really disapointed in the pics i got.. cuz there really isnt hardly any glare at all camera picked up every bit of light tho lol

Just for future reference, I had to cut my retaining rings as well. I found that using a dremel and cutting about an 1/8th" below the hold down was the perfect size. Just measure twice and cut once!
