Here is a quick run through the installation process for our Homage 7 Inch LED Headlight into a Land Rover Defender (90/110).
STEP 1: Completely remove/unplug the headlight shroud, along with the original headlight unit. Continue to remove the headlight from the retaining shroud.
Unbox your new Homage LED headlights. Mount the Homage into the retaining bracket, and plug the H4 connector in (for the parker function, connect the blue wire to a 12v source). Place onto the car and reassemble the headlight shroud.
Note: You may need to adjust the aim of the headlight after install.
AIMING THE BEAM
Headlights must be securely mounted and properly aimed so the “cut-off line” complies with all applicable regulations. We recommend that headlights are aimed using a headlight aiming system for proper alignment. Failure to properly aim your headlights is a risk to other drivers and could result in tickets or citations with local authorities. STEDI is not liable for any damage to the vehicle or light, or any tickets/citations as a result of using these guidelines.
BEFORE INSTALLATION. Prior to aiming the headlight, make sure the vehicle is on a level surface with all tyres properly inflated, and the vehicle is at its normal drive height.
Note: If a lift kit is added or removed from the vehicle, the headlights will need to be aimed again.
REQUIRED FOR INSTALL. Tape or chalk to mark the lines for alignment, tools relevant for your vehicle's aiming mechanism.
AIMING GUIDELINES. Park your vehicle in an area that provides a flat verticle surface with at least 7.62 metres behind it (excluding the length of the car). On the wall, draw a line from the ground up to the approximate centre point of the headlight, this will be the ‘y’ axis, repeat for the other headlight.
Connect the centre points between the ‘y’ axis to make you ‘x’ axis extending a little further at each end as shown below and then proceed to extend the ‘y’ axis slightly higher as well.
Reverse your vehicle in a straight line so that the distance between your headlights and the wall is 7.62 meters. When you first turn on the low beam headlights, they may be positioned wrong and likely different from each other. The aim is to align the kink (or elbow) of the beam to align with the cross-section of the ‘y’ and ‘x’ axis as displayed below.
