If thats the case then drilling could be considered..
First post the pics n get some expert advise before going for the drilling option

Hello! An update.. I had a checkup on the module/wiring today. Its all intact, (I did this checkup because its held by temporary rubber clips). I did look into that hole which one of you circled, behind that is another tiny hole, kinda complicated to insert the wire in that. So still using temporary wire setup. Checked near the clutch also, no possible holes to let the wire in.

The tape which I've temporarily put on that day of install to block dust and water from entering the HL, is still intact, I will find out about the rear cover of the HL and see if its available separately and for a good price and then go ahead with the drilling perhaps. My current setup is also not bad.

I'm trying to hook my strobes to the car's security system. Its pretty simple as per the instructions. To hook up the blue wire from the module to the red wire from the security system's module. This way, on pressing the locate button, the strobes get activated to help find your car easier as well as when the alarm is triggered, the strobes flash to create an attention to everyone. I did find the wire, i'll check if it works later today.

At the moment, I'm having fun with the strobes. Two times I drove through the city roads with strobes on, and I got a clear path of me ahead lol (being careful from cops though).

Btw, one issue got solved- the issue where i had fixed the wrong connectors. I was able to remove it and fix it correctly.

I don't think so strobes are repairable? It may be possible but would be difficult to find a person who'd be able to do it.

My Ford Ikon is running perfectly with the strobes! They light up the streets and make the surroundings shine. Boy! I love the attention it gets. Its also helpful considering those oncoming truckers in the night time with full high beam.

Been using it in rain to test the workability and no issues. One picture of my car with strobes is added in my garage.

Today I got a pair of the headlamp rear cover. Cost me 70/piece, so 140 rs. From Lumax brand. So I'll perhaps drill the OEM cover for the wire to go through and keep these new Lumax covers for when not using strobes.

I'll update later!

Why not do it the other way?

Because the new ones I bought today seem to be thicker and more sturdy than the OEM which I have.. But maybe the new ones might be better.. Okay I'll do the drilling on the new ones soon!

Btw kpzen how are your strobes doing?

Hi all, I want to fit Strobe lights in my Swift. Can anyone tell me if I can fit them in place of the parking light. If anyone has done it in their swift, please suggest me.
