50 bucks

I'll give $50 to anyone that can get my headlight covers with the lux angel eyes on properly with no condensation or AHL warning lights. I've tried this too many times and I am fed up

I hear that you're frustrated, but I'm curious if you found/watched the video on installing the LUX AE's?



For me, the bit about removing the two plastic pins from the cover was probably the most important in terms of making things fit. Around 3:30 into the video...

If you want to try one final time, then go all in on doing it right- pull the bumper, pull the lights, install the AE's, reinstall the lights and bumper. You'll know they're water tight.

Yeah I've watched that video several times and followed the directions to a T. I was sure I got it right last night but there's condensation again. It's only a matter of time before the headlight goes out so I need to get it on properly asap. And I don't have the proper equipment to remove the bumper and headlights. If someone local does, there's $50 bucks in it for them

If I lived up there I'd come do it for beer & bench racing

Just a thought, but maybe the gaskets are done in- maybe grab a fresh set just to be safe.

Hope ya get it sorted!
