Lux help

Guys, I'm having a nightmare trying to get this to go in.

I have the upiside down T and trying to slide it in and rotate back counterclockwise to lock in. (Clockwise if perspective is from windshield to nose of car)

I got the oem bulb out no problem. My small hands are easy to get in the housing and getting the lux bulb in is no problem. Dropping the heatsink down first then feeding in the led part is cake. I'm just having the worst luck trying to get this thing seated and locked.

Any help?

I feel your pain, I JUST installed mine 10 minutes ago and it took way longer than I expected. I was wishing I had smaller hands the entire time

Glad you got them in. We're working on revising the heatsink slightly to make it easier to get it in. Thank you for that tip!!!!

Hope you enjoy the lights!!

Thx for the warning. I have them
on the way. If the OEM design is any
warning, this can't get better.

Sure! And the lights are better than I imagined. The color of the 6500k is absolutely perfect. In certain overcast conditions the lights have a slight purple/blue hue to them which is exactly what I wanted.

Pictures really do not do these lights justice. I keep turning them on to look at

Just did mine after work late last night too. Was thinking it would be a quick thing. From start to finish it took me an hour. Drivers side is definitely easier than passenger side. It was simple in theory but just hard as hell to maneuver it. All said and done though I'm very happy with the results.
