AMBER SWITCH PLUG LOCATION

To access the rear of each ALPHAREX headlight, unscrew the screws securing the mounting bracket.

Use a Phillips screwdriver to carefully unscrew the three screws securing the mounting bracket in place.

After removing the mounting bracket, you’ll gain access to the rectangular cover. Proceed to unscrew the four screws to open the cover.

CONNECT THE AMBER SWITCH PLUGS

Find the amber DRL plugs on the circuit board. Connect each plug directly to its respective headlight, ensuring a secure and proper connection. DO NOT USE DIELECTRIC GREASE!

To finish, reverse the steps taken for removal to reassemble everything. 

COMPLETE THE SWITCH TO AMBER DRL & PARKING LIGHTS
