Hi , my wife has a 2010 2.2 Titanium, where the headlights are always playing up. They are very dim, the steering lights aren't really of much use and they are more trouble than they are worth. My question is - can these lights be straight swapped with those from a Zetec which I believe has basic halogens, or can they be swapped with the optional Bi Xenons? 

 

I assume the basic halogens may give warnings on the dash which could be an MOT fail , or do they take the same plug and also assume that other things would be needed for the Bi Xenons?

 

Has anyone done this? Comments and advice would be most welcome !  :biggrin:

 

Thanks

Wiring maybe different but easily sorted, you will probably need to program

the system to standard lights though.

Not sure about fitting the standard halogens but I believe to fit the xenons you would need to fit the 4 levelling sensors, change the control module, fit the 2 replacement headlights and then change the ecu with elmconfig or similar.

 

Something I've been looking into but the cost is quite off putting.

The basic halogens will work (sidelights, dipped, main), I tried it when I was having problems with one of my AFS headlamps. Headlight leveling might not work though (I didn't try this) because with AFS headlamps the level signal from the knob on the light switch goes via the HCM to the headlamp whereas with basic halogens the signal goes direct to the headlamp. Though it would be fairly simple to bypass the HCM. I had to do this in reverse when I switched from basic halogens to ASF headlamps.
