I installed my IPF headlights and fatboy bulbs last night. Everything went good except for dropping and busting the first stock light I took out!! I was wondering if anyone had any trouble with fitment?? My drivers side has some play in it. If you tap on the light it moves back and forth. My passenger side is good!! I don't know what would be different. I would appreciate it if someone could tell me what to check!! Thanks again!!
That's wierd, one is good and the other is loose. I thought maybe I did something different and someone could maybe point out what I had done. I didn't wanna take it out and smash it into 2000 pieces like I did my stock bulb!!
The bucket is plastic of some kind, I have had them break, pull the light out and check the bucket itself, it's two pieces, the base piece that mounts to the sheetmetal and the ring that holds the headlight, one of the adjusters that holds it together might be broken. It's non repairable at least in the two times it happened to me, ended up buying new ones for $90 at the dealer.
Why, whats the big deal, 3 trim ring screws, 3 retainer screws on the ring, light comes out, unplug, clean the plugs, some dielectric grease, plug them backin and reassemble. You might get your hands dirty and if you sit on an overturned 5 gallon bucket you won't even get your knees dirty
If your IPF housing is loose, you can bend those little tabs that fit in the factory retainer for a snugger fit. Some have also used a bit of that window/door trim you can find nearly anywhere (the long thin strip stuff) for it to fit snugly.
mine were kinda a pita, but not too bad. mine fit a little TOO snug, not too loose although it is very worth it once they are in, there light output is phenomenal compared to stock. I have had many passengers compliment the headlights. Especially when both 100watt off road lights are on
