Re: How to-2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

From CLUBRSX.Com

TO AIM PROJECTOR HEADLIGHTS:

1. Align your car dead center in your driveway....the front and back of your car need to be perfectly aligned in the center..

2. Pull your car up to the garage door...as close as you can get w/o hitting the door..dead center in the middle of the garage door / driveway.

3. Put a piece of tape where the headlight beams hit the garage door. This should only be smal dot of light...

4. Pull you car back 25'. Your Projector lens should be 25' away from the garage door...not your tires or your bumper...your headlights. DEAD CENTER IN THE DRIVEWAY

5. With tape Place a VERTICAL line that intersects each piece of tape that you put on the garage where your headlight beams hit. Use a yardstick or a straight edge t make it perpendicular to the driveway. This is important for aiming your lights right to left....this is just as important as up and down because if your lights are aimed to far left you will still be shining omcoming traffic in the eyes and if they are aimed too far right your not getting the most out of your light.

6. With tape place a horizontal line along the garage that intersects each piece of tape that you put on the garage where your headlight beams hit. They should oth be the same height off the driveway.

7. With tape place a horizontal line along the garage that is 2.1" lower than the tape you placed on the garage in instruction #6. This line should be parallel with the line in #6...just 2.1" lower.

8. Cover up the passenger side headlight with a thick towel.

9. Turn on your lights

10. Drivers Side UP/Down: Bring the lower step of the cutoff to or below the tape line that is 2.1" lower than your headlights...Dot Spec is 2.1" to 2.5" drop over 25'

11. Drivers Side Right / Left: The Vertical line on the drivers side of the garage should intersect the middle of the slant on the cutoff. Move the beam pattern until this is the case.

Moving the projectors from right to left may effect the height of the beam pattern. If this is the case..just go back and fine tune.

12. Cover the Drivers side headlight with a thick towel.

13. Repeat the UP/Down Left/Right procedure that you did on the drivers side with the passenger side. The vertical line on the passenger side of the garage is to be used for instersecting the slant in the cutoff on the passenger side headlight beam.

Re: How to-2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

Sorry about being a little off topic, but I have some questions about these HID headlights. One is on Picture #4. What is that gray thing next to your thumb, next to where the D1S bulb goes? Is that for the auto leveling?

Reason why I'm asking is, because my 2008 Jeep WK had the HID headlights from the factory, until the previous owner got into an accident. The local car dealer that I bought my Jeep from fixed the damage, but put an 05-07 front end on it. I bought it knowing about it being in an accident, but I didn't realize there was a design change in '08, and that it had factory options for the HID lights.

I was able to get a 2008 front end on it, with regular halogen lights on it for free. When getting the headlights and bumper put on. I noticed it had an extra connector, that would be able to plug straight into the wiring harness of the headlight, on Picture #1. I'm assuming, if I plug them together it would work?

I am quite sure you are right and that it will work.

Re: How to-2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

Sorry its a bit of a late reply ! I have been looking to install Oem projectors in my UK 2007 WK ,The US headlights do not have a small aperture in the main beam bowl for our side lights(parking lights) so the only way would possibly be to install switchback indicator lamps to get the side light we require for MOT.
Yes they are very hard to get in the UK!!!

Re: How to-2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

you wont be able to use US lights in the UK. they are aimed differently because we drive on the otherside of the road. US lights are aimed slightly to the right which would blind other UK drivers.

Re: How to-2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

You can use US lamps...just manually adjust the beams to orient the way you want them.

Re: How to-2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

You will have to open up the headlights to adjust the projectors that way. The screw adjustment is only for up/down
