Note I refer to them as "running lights" instead of DRL because they are on all the time. The front ones also have a yellow light set, hooked to the directionals. I removed the grille (don't even ask!), and the headlight extension panels. I then removed the backs of these panel except for the mounting points . I was then able to slide the light modules in. They came from my '07, cost $12 on ebay in 2016.

Nice, looks good.


Photos must be under 100K. I use Image Resizer for posting pics.


Have a good day.

I still have nightmares about removing the grille on my 2009 LE. :cursin:

Took it off to install the Hella Super Horns then again for the LED DRLS. Final time was when I switched grilles and put on the JDM black chrome vision. Thanks god there was 10 tang clips holding it on, for I ended up busting one of them every time I removed it.

The grille on my 2017.5 doesn't look any easier to remove, but I was lucky enough that I could slip the Hella Super Horns in and mount them without removing it.

Take care!

Jim

Were the Hella Super Horns plug and blow or did you have to use the relay setup? Looking at the original horn wiring it has a 10 amp fuse, and these horns seem to want to draw 11 amps.


Not sure if I want to add wiring just to change horns.


Have a good day.

They did come with a relay if you wanted to install them along with the OEM horns. On both my 2009 and 2017.5, they bolt on to the original mounting stud and accept the OEM wire terminals. On the 2017.5, only the top grille/radiator "shroud/cover" needs to be removed to be able to access the horns. It's tight, but possible if you don't have gorilla hands! :laugh:

I had absolutely no issues with them for the nine years I owned my 2009 LE and the most recent set have been on my 2017.5 since mid-April. I live in the metro Chicago area, they get plenty of use and they do what they're supposed to do quite well. Hope this helps and take care!

Got the Kensun 6000K low beam HID today. Have one installed. Quite a contrast. Good pattern, sharp cutoff. Reasonably easy installation.
I am going to use LED on the high beams and fogs.

Do you mind me asking how you removed the back of the extension panels? I did it with a dremel, but didn't like the way it came out...

lol, at least I wasn't the only one. I am actually going to do it again with the tubes that change from white to amber with blinker. Need to wait for the weather to cooperate a bit first!

I did it that way too. It was ugly, but I don't see it. End result was great!
I wanted to ask if you had any problems wiring your lights? The only way I could do it was to get an add a fuse and plug +12 into open space on fuse box. For some reason it seems I may have a parasitic draw. If I leave the fuse in overnight, it kills my battery. I just installed new lights yesterday (see photos). They are switchback, so blinker turns them amber when activated. They are always on during the day, and looks pretty good. :)

I just quick wired them to an ignition on point in the fuse box
