hi guys after some help from all of you, i have managed to source a HID kit

i was going to wait till next week before i install it but, well you know how it is, i need to get it done like now!!!!!!

ive worked it all out and just need help with identifying the positive and negative, both wires are black and unless i use a volt meter, which i currently cant find, i dont know the following

when looking at the original wiring, there are two wires entering the plug for the H& bulb, one above the other..

can anyone confirm which is positive???? top or bottom wire and is it the same for both N/S & O/S

cheers

always thought it was the rh on from the rear - but dont quote me on that untested sorry - but do you have the old bulbs ?

slot it in so it's wired one side

turn lights on

touch other side to body as earth

if its wired to a positive it will light up

if its wired to a negative it will do nothing

note if it lights up it will get hot :)

red to blue
black to brown

this might help someone in the future

o/s positive is the top wire

n/s positive the the bottom wire

cheers guys.
