    Un-plug the light bulb from the socket, than remove it from the housing.
    save up the old bulb.
    than take the HID bulb out, be-careful do not touch the glass, if you do, use some paper towel to clean it.
    On the rubber gasket, I will make two holes on it, so you can pull the wire out from the bulb,
    Than connect the ballast to the HID bulb wire, than hook up the OEM head light wire to the relay harness.
    On the realy harness, one end will go to the the battery +, the other end find a good gounding place under the hook, I believe you will find a gounding points above the wheel, with a nuts on it, make the connection there.
    Than connect the relay harness to the HID ballast,
    The ballast you can use some tie-wrap, tie it down some where, where you feel safe. The wire do the same just use tie wrap tie it with the other cable, make it look nice. It should be a 5 - 10 minutes job to tie everything down.
    total I use about half hours to make a good & nice HID job.
    Also one suggestion, go to Auto zone or any auto parts store, get a battery terminal extension, i think it is not more than 5 dollars.
    hope you make it work.

    if you want some photos, I can take some for you tomorrow. Let me know.
    Hope this help.
