Please Help!

I just installed my EFX H8s last night and there throwing codes like crazy so i guess i will return them. Is there an easy way to take the driver side headlight cover off? (there is something that says advanced bmw battery charger or soemtihng. Also, where are you guys mounting that stupid bassalt box that it comes with?

Any help at all would be GREATLY appreciated.

All I know about is removing them the way you installed them and removed the originals. Also, I hear GP thunders are not likely at all to throw codes when installed right. That's what I'm going for.. Sorry I can't help any more, I'm preparing for an "adventure" of my own when it comes to replacing the lights.

Atleast you got the correct EFX lights... I feel your pain brother. Forget these things. I am going for GP Thunders and calling it a day.

I have the same question on the ballast! Where are people installing the ballast?
