This is a
style [DIY]. Without his post here
I will not be able to do this. Thanks a lot
This MOD is for ioniq that doesn't come with HID lamp (Blue and SEL in the U.S.)
*Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any damage that occurs to your vehicle if you decide to follow this procedure. I attempted to remove and install new bulbs the easiest and best way possible, but everyone's vehicle may be different in respect to parts being seized or flaws in manufacturing or quite simply using brute force when you shouldn't be.*
1. Rubber Gloves
2. H7 LED bulbs (2 bulbs). Beam pattern is a very important concern when changing headlight. Do your research and choose your LED bulbs wisely.
3. Warm weather, heat gun or hair dryer, if you have to do this mod in cold weather.
4.TOMALL H7 LED Headlight Bulb Retainers Holder Adapter for Hyundai 2017 Mistra New Tucson KIA Carnival
5.3D printable Extended dust cap
7.Electrical Tape and/or shrink tube
8.DIY plastic holder removal tools (will show you haw to make this later).
Make sure car is off.
Find headlight dust cap which is located under the hood, behind the headlight housing. The low beams are the furthest and unfortunately the hardest to get access to.
Rotate the cap in a counter-clockwise direction. Their is a rubber seal that will make it feel tight, but it will move slowly. The cap rotates 45 degress then will stop.
Use finger nails or something thin to pull the cap from the headlight housing as rotating it will not pull it away from the housing.
Make a DIY plastic holder removal tool. I use plywood scrap and two wood screw place them 20mm (3/4 inch) apart from each other.
Use the DIY tool to remove the plastic holder by turning it 45 degree counter-clockwise.
Ware a glove, pull the plastic holder out of the housing and remove the halogen bulb.
Dissemble the connectors from the plastic holder. The plastic base has plastic tab/knob to hold the connector in place. You have to ply the connector while pushing it till it come out of the plastic base.
In this photo you can see the tab/knob in the plastic base that hold the connector in place.
you will need a flat head screwdriver for plying and another Philip or hex or Allen key to push the connector out of the plastic base.
It might be harder if you have to do in on your car under the hood. If it is too hard then just cut it and make a new connection.
After the connectors came out wrap them with electrical tape and/or shrink tube.
Put the LED in the adapter.
Plug the LED into the connectors and test if it working? If not, rotate the connector. Unlike the halogen, some LED bulbs are polarized.
Make sure the car is OFF!!!
guide the LED into the housing. Rotate the LED adapter back and forth back in the headlight housing. You will feel the notches fall back into place and you will be able to rotate the adapter 45 degrees and it will click into place. This step will also be easier if the plastic bulb holder is warm. Not hot, but warm.
tugged in all the wires. and check your beam pattern.
Close the dust cap.
wait until night and enjoy your work.
