Help-how to remove nose cone cover

I am installing the Autolamp HID kit now. The nose cone cover will not lift out. We have removed the 6 screws and the map light torx screw, What is holding it in-it moves about 1 inch then stops.

Make sure you did get the right screw behind the map light! Many of us have removed one of the Phillips screws that are actually part of the Instrument cover instead of the actual Allen? screw that is holding the cover. It is really hidden up in there. The other possible problems are the cover is just snagging on the nose cowl, or you may have to move the windshield arms up or down for clearance.

HTH!

I had the same problem. I got the one in the map-light hole. It was either two screws near the mirror mounts . . . or there was one dead center that I had somehow missed. Just know that, if you're tugging, you've missed a screw. The nosecone comes off VERY easily once all the associated fasteners have been removed.

In short no if using the HID to modulate. If you have the modulator on high beam and you convert the low beam to HID, yes.

I wouldn't do that even if you find a way to make it work. HID's aren't made to be flashed. You will shorten lamp life and/or damage the ballast.
