Hello! I finally got to install my Max 2000. Max 4000 got dropped out because the thin long bulb would go inside the parking bulb socket, no problem, BUT the other hook type bulb would go ONLY into a H3 socket. It wouldn't go into my existing fogs. I thought of buying extra empty driving lamps to put in the 2 H3 type strobes, but i didn't want to add those to my car, so settled for Max 2000. Im a happy boy after I got this. It cost me 3.2k.

I got some issues in the installation, which took me 3-4 hours .
#1. I couldnt find a hole from the engine bay into the passenger cabin to take the EZ switch, so i ran it through the door gaps as temporary.

#2. The headlamp cover at the back isn't closed properly because of the thick wire of the strobe bulb.. Dunno what to do for this.. Ill take pictures tomorrow to show you.. Then you can suggest.

#3. I accidentally put the PIN CONNECTOR plastic clip for the SOCKET pins and the SOCKET CONNECTOR plastic clip for the PIN clip. One of them I was able to take out, but the other I wasn't.. I gotta find a way to take it out to clip it in properly..

#4. Oh yeah, I haven't screwed in the Power Supply to the engine bay yet. Its held with rubber clips temporarily until I find out how to make holes and screw it in.

Any help for the issues above?

Thank you, but I managed to install it myself. Luckily it came with instructions.

1 - The wires should be came inside cabin from near clutch and brakes. There should be rubber with hole. Check it out.

Pictures of the installation:






Pictures for issues:

#2. The headlamp cover at the back isn't closed properly because of the thick wire of the strobe bulb..





#3. I accidentally put the PIN CONNECTOR plastic clip for the SOCKET pins and the SOCKET CONNECTOR plastic clip for the PIN clip. One of them I was able to take out, but the other I wasn't.. I gotta find a way to take it out to clip it in properly..



The socket on the right is from the power supply box, the socket on the left is actually the same as the socket from the power supply box. It was supposed to go to the strobe side, But am unable to remove it.

This is how the headlight looks with the strobe bulb..



So, any help for the issues above?

Btw,

#1. I couldnt find a hole from the engine bay into the passenger cabin to take the EZ switch, so i ran it through the door gaps as temporary.

I still havent found a way for this above. Near the clutch and brake there's no hole sufficient to take the wire through.

You will have to drill the plastic cover.

Absar..! Do not wash your car else water will enter the HL assembly...!!

Only thing u can do here is insulate that gap with the help of tape else go for the drilling option....

Ok...so is there anyway Absar can fix that wire without having any gap....
Don't u think the gap will cause the water & dust to enter n spoil the HL assembly...
Also do u think drilling is a good option in a DIY ??? Mind u the Ikon HL costs 3.2 K..

I got rubber holders for the bulbs yeah! But actually, its just the rear cover of the HL unit that doesn't close properly. I will try to post a picture of the rear cover of HL unit..

What if the cover of the HL unit is available for a cheap price n I wouldnt mind drilling it then. I'm sure it must be available separately and not as sold with new HL unit..

And, Mugen_Power, waiting for your DIY job pictures
