-White stuff = silicone solution to keep the new ground wire in place.

The tap I used self strips the wires for you. You put the existing ground, and the new ground into it.
You can also use T-taps, but any faulty wiring will cause the ECU to detect an error.

The two new ground wires, I used for each headlight. The little connectors(pins) on the two new ground wires are made for the OEM connector. They snap right into place. I just used the silicone to secure it from wiggling.
