Predator Ice mod

Need help guys. JLeviSW's Predator Ice DIY instructions made me very confused. See pic.

It says he green should go to the "-" terminal and the red to "+" but the picture says otherwise. sgt_gman2005's DIY says the green goes to "+" and the red to "-" and concides with JLeviSW's picture but contradicts the vendors description.

Thanks for the reply Matt. I went with my gut feeling and JLeviSW confirmed it later. LOL. The green wire goes to the "+" connector.

Yep, the two ice "cubes" (for lack of better name) can only fit one way so there's a left and right designation. If it doesn't fit then you're using it on the wrong side.

But regarding the wire connection, the green wire should go to the positive/"+" connector and the red to negative.

The rubber wasn't the issue (it was where the wires should go). Actually I was able to use them and fit them nicely. You'll just need to push it down well then tighten the screw.

So I have taken the parts apart (removed the bumper and removed the stock headlights). It wasn't that difficult. It was really just a matter of finding the easiest way to removed the screws.

I know (conceptually) how the wiring should go BUT I'm undecided on where to do it inside the Xenon housing or outside. Also, I'm still scared to touch the wires as it seems like there's really not much room to work with and I haven't done any electrical stuff... Anyone can provide some tips here?

I'm calling on known forum members here (Jamie, Scott, Alex, etc)... Any chance you guys know the wiring for this mod? I'm stuck right now. Seriously, I need somebody at my house to help me with this thing.

Sample pic without the wiring mod. Lowbeam (and highbeam?) doesn't work without the wiring mod.

Yes it is! But I need to do the wiring to make the low-beam functional. I'm hoping somebody can chime in on how to do this.

Thanks Jamie. Basically I'm doing the halogen to xenon conversion (as we speak ) and has taken off the bumper and the headlights. I've done the Predator Ice mod as well but I need to do the wiring for the halogen to xenon conversion. If I plug the new xenon headlight without the wiring mod, the lowbeam does not work (as expected). So my challenge really right now is how to do the actual splicing of wires and insert them into the xenon terminal.

I know the conversion/wiring concept. Just scared to do the physical wiring without getting some tips from people who has done it already. ADHD's DIY link: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28035.

basically without me coming out by you, the only thing to do is just follow the DIY..its not realy hard. just strip the wires to there contact point, making sure not to cut it all the way off...lol then it will be a PITA.
