Mounting the Lights
IMPORTANT: Plan all cable routing before the installation.
AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT—Do not install equipment or route wiring in the deployment
path of an airbag. Failure to observe this warning will reduce the effectiveness of the
airbag or potentially dislodge the equipment, causing serious injury or death.
To mount the lights to the grille:
1. Route the wire from the lighthead through the mounting bracket.
DRILLING PRECAUTIONS—Check the area into which you are drilling to be sure
you do not damage vehicle components. All drilled holes should be deburred and
all sharp edges should be smoothed. All wire routings going through drilled holes
should be protected by a grommet or convolute/split loom tubing.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN SCREWS/NUTS—To avoid damage to the lightheads, do not
overtighten the screws/nuts.
2. See Figures 1 through 3. Attach the lightheads to the brackets using the hardware supplied with the
lightheads.
