morimoto xb led headlights
 
I just installed the xb led headlights from the retrofit source. The left headlight vibrates with road bumps. Its noticeable by cars in front of me---my son pointed it out to me when I was following him. So I informed the retrofit source and they quickly sent a replacement - great service! However this one is doing the same thing! Seems the projector(s) are loose in the headlight, I think. But anyway, has anyone experienced anything like this? I'm going to contact the retrofit source again, but .... By the way, the right side is rock solid.

Post some pics. I've been waiting for someone to install a set of these

I noticed the same thing. I can slap the light and see the beam jiggle. I guess I'll also contact them

When I HID projector retrofitted my stock headlights, they did the same thing.

I can see mine jiggle on the garage wall every time I start the engine and stop it. TRS sent a replacement which also jiggles so they are sending a third light. If that one isn't solid, I guess I'll live with it. Keep your receipt--if it fails or gets significantly worse, it has a five year warranty. But as I said in my first post, the right headlight is rock solid--no jiggle at all so you would expect they could get the left one solid. Maybe a manufacturing issue with this early build lot. Someone asked for pictures. I'm an old guy, no tech wiz and I don't know how. But I'll work on it.

I'm give them a call next week because these lights were sold at a premium and I do expect better

If he asked you for a PICTURE of something jiggling, I'd say he's the technologically challenged one

I'm sorry I misled you about the picture request. TRS did not ask for pictures. They took my return request without question. The picture request came from a member of this forum. He had not seen these headlights installed on a truck yet and asked for pics. Also, as I will, it would be good if you updated this thread with the results of your return with TRS. THANKS

I contacted TRS about the second headlight vibrating also. They were going to send another one but subsequently decided to hold off until they can investigate the problem with the manufacturer. So I am waiting for the result. They did (yesterday) send an email asking that I try to get a video so I'll work on that tonight...
