Most of you guys have been asking about the HID's on the fog lights. So I took the pictures at my mother in Laws house since my wife had the camera there.  The picture quality might sucked.  The camara wasnt fully charged and it was ready to die.

Warming up when you first turn it on.






Both lights turned on








[glow=red,2,300]This is what happens when you aim them at least an inch up. (It will blind the incoming drivers)[/glow]

They way you can get to your fog lights are by under the car.  You will need to unbolt the plastic that is under the car.  Basiclly if you look under your car by each tire, you will see 4 mini bolts.  The plastic has a circular hole to drain the water out.  That is the peace you have to remove to get to your fog lights. 

Once you have both sides out of your way,  just swap the bulbs and you will want to mount the ballast where water cant get to and will get a good cool breeze of hair.  Most common is always next to your fog lights by where the actuall projecters mount.  Dont use the sticky pads they provide, because the heat and moisture will knock it off.  Use two small screws and find a good secure place.

Once you install the lights to the projectors, you wont need to aim them.   But as for the headlights, always go with OEM Specs or at least to where you are most cool with and away from other drivers eyes.

I spoke with the Service manager today, he told me that if they see an HID set up on our cars, the warranty wouldnt be voided on our light components, but it will be voided if the sockets got burned or the light system fried up due to the "HID" system, then we are on our own and a money comes out of our pockets to replace a $1000 light components and wiring. 

But hoping nothing happens to none of us, if it does happen, just never mention an HID system on your car and just go ahead and pull out your HID kit from your car, put the original halogen lights back in your car and drive to the dealer. And act like you dont know whats going on.

But the dealer will Aim our HID lights in our lamps to a good spec for $25.  Which is not bad since they have all the tools and machines required to aim these lights.

You musta not looked very hard. :shock:
In my "FORD FUSION OWNER'S GUIDE 2006" in the Index under "headlamps" subcatagory "aiming" it say pages 37-38.  On those pages it describes how to adjust the verticle aim using the "verticle adjuster".  There is no horizontal adjustment on our headlights. 
You musta had somebody install your HIDs for you.  I can't see somebody doing this themselves and then can't find how to aim them in the owners manual.  It's not like it's hidden or anything.  Took all of 10 seconds to find.

Yea what gives. We are here to help out each other and keep each other posted with new things. We are not here to bash on no one and to bash on some one for nothing. Every one makes mistakes, no one is perfect.


Anyways, if you want to aim them to best view, just take it to Ford. Its only about $25. Trust me, you will love the results when they aim those suckers.

And as for the fog lights been dimmed, do you have 6000k on fog lights and headlights? Because I know the 6000k are very bright, even on the fog lights.

just seems the low beams are brighter.. i think maybe becuz somehow they are all aim downword, i figured the hid light would be all over the place but it mostly concentrate in the lower fog light beam area.. for now im good.. not stressing it much... i will tinker with aim and put them up a tad.. all trial and error..

Just take it to a dealer to aim - and give those poor cut-up and bruised fingers some rest!

Yea I agree with fused1. Just drop it off to the dealer, sit down and relax, and treat your self for a nice cold beer and enjoy the rest of the day.

Where's the best place to get HID lighting kits? I've been wanting to do the same, and those pics show exactly what I've been looking for. Also, Are they legal in the US? Not sure where to look to find out....

EDIT: I'm retarded. Right in front of my face. :?
