I'm looking at Bi-Xenon projectors and wondering if it's possible to take the LT head light apart?
I think I am missing the point. Could you explain?BecketMa said:I'm looking at Bi-Xenon projectors and wondering if it's possible to take the LT head light apart?...
By the way, yes it is possible to get the headlight assembly apart as I have done so, but I warn you it is extremely difficult without damaging the assembly. I ended up cracking some of the plastic around the lens trying to remove the adhesive BMW used to put it together.BecketMa said:...wondering if it's possible to take the LT head light apart...
I think any way you go will involve fabrication, I am desperately trying to remember and can't but I was thinking that the low-beam bulb mounts in the fixture in a somewhat vertical orientation behind the High beam reflector doesn't it? If that is the case it will not work for a plug and play with a projector, and there is still the depth to deal with, there isnt 6.5" in that housing.BecketMa said:It seems that installing separate projectors for low and high beam inside the behind the LT glass lens would involve fabrication while installing one projector might be a modification.
Best way is to heat them in the oven to about 250. That will soften the adheasive and they will just pull apart.wa1200lt said:To get the headlight assembly apart could you cut it with a saw blade or an abrasive disk in a Dremel?
The other reason to use the stock housing (which I assume refers to the black plastic part) is that the adjustment from the dash knob rides on that black plastic bucket.I suppose you could remove the back of the housing with no deleterious effect, however the front of the bucket where it meets the glass is also where the attachments to the fairing are located.BecketMa said:The other reason to use the headlight housing is to keep the original look?
