Hi everyone, I was asked by a friend to install an HID kit into her 2003 Mazda 6s. From what I saw in the headlight, the highbeam and lowbeam are both H1, but only has one connector directly to the bulb. As per any standard HID kit, there is the ballast wires for power and ground, so where would I put the ground pin? Thanks for the help!

the ground is attached to the projector i think.... i forgot... but you should be able to find it... it's black... you just have to deattach it, and then widen it to fit the spade terminal's negative from the ballast...

The ground wire is attached to the metal housing around the bulbs...

once you are in there and working, it is impossible to miss

Thank you! This is the DIY guide I needed and couldn't find via search. But I guess I'm def taking off the bumper now...as I realized even if I can get to the headlight to install the kit, there is no where in the engine bay to mount the ballasts. Thanks again

drill some holes on the side of the bumper support bar, the metal thing that has the large peice of black styrofoam attached to it, then mount the ballasts on each side accordingly. make sure the place you mount them with enough wire room to have the headlight in place and the wires still a lil slacked.



thats a really zoomed in view, but its the driver side's ballast.
