I won't be doing this until I secure another set of HL's I will be using the 4-door Headlights as my testbed--I like the Black look.

Post pics and maybe we can see how to help!

That thing was so annoying to get out for me too...it took me a while and a lot of frustration to finally get it...just hold down the prongs on the sides and wiggle it upwards the best u can...take a break if u can't get it and when u regain the energy try rllllyy hard with strength to pop it out.

If you bought the switchbacks from DiodeDynamics (along with their flasher module) then you'll have to buy a different module, as they send out the wrong size for our car. I'm not sure of what module you'll have to buy but I'm sure a quick search will turn up exactly what you need.

i did a search when i ordered it but DDM said that they are sending out the correct ones now... does autozone or someone sell the right one?

That post (49) says the model flasher that you need, Tridon EP34, autozone should carry it.

My post (55) asks the company on December 1st if they had the proper module, and they responded (57) on the 2nd saying they don't have it, even though they said that they were getting it in back in October.

Either you can get some resistors (splice them into your rear turn signals is easiest), or drop by autozone and get the Tridon.

Yea u have to get the EP34 one. I got mine from autozone and it fit in seconds. I took maybe 2 hours trying to get the one from DD in and obv it didn't go in cuz it didn't fit...found out the hard way. It's in now tho and i love the switchbacks. I wouldn't think the "hyperflashing" would do anything to the bulbs

I just tested the video and it still works for me....but it is located on on the driver side of the car, under the dashboard...above the peddles, you have to lay on your back with your head right near the peddles to see it.
