Jes.. i do.

But to explane it. Next week i will try to take some pic.

You have to make a switsch and rewire you headlicht control box.

The control box is sitting under your dasch at the drivers site.

But i will make a pic of the place that you have to connect the wire's because if you do it rong your lights wil keep on flipping.

found some pic on our dutch site.

take note

You first have to remove the dashboard plating below the steering wheel that is mounted with screw's.
Then you have to remove the air tube.
To do that you first have to remove the plastic clip, See the red arrow. otherwise it will not let go.



Behind that you will find a blue box (that's the control box)



Take it out and open it carefully. After that you will see



The yellow arrow is for the right headlight
The blue arrow is for the left headlight.
The red arrow is for both, a sort of reset.

Because these switches are all minus it wil switch as soon as it wil get contact with te mass of the car. And your lights will go up and down... Flappy happy
Try it with a bit of wiring and you'll see

connect three wires



Put everything back together and place 2 or 3 switches (the reset one has to be a single seperate switch. You can put the right and left on one dual switch or two seperate ones).

See end result below in my sig.

I don't get your post.

Read mine first, it's a wiring instruction. After that you can control your headlights.

Make them flip up and down and make them stand in sleeper mode. See pic. of my car below.

Lot of people want to know how you can do this so make it STICKY moderator.....
