Do they make projector housings for a Gen. 3 Sable? I've seen them for the gen. 4s, but no gen. 3
I haven't purchased one myself, but I'm planning on it. Lots of place online sell them. Amazon had some at the lower end of the price range that I saw:
Putco 239007HW Premium Automotive Lighting Wiring 9007 100W Heavy Duty Harness and Relay : Amazon.com : Automotive
Otherwise, if you just do a google search for "9007 heavy duty headlight harness" or "9007 upgraded headlight harness" you'll find sites that sell them.
As I understand it, you can make your own also, but I don't know how.
old school rule, at the rated volts, increase 5% in volts and cuts life in half.Voltage is tied with amperage by the bulb resistance. So, a lower voltage on a given bulb will absolutely generate a lower current.
Incandescent bulbs have the light output not linear, but with square of voltage. A 5% lower voltage will generate a 7.5% lower light. A 10% lower voltage will generate a 20% drop in light.
I am recommending using the DOT legal Phillips X-Treme Power.
Is that a pic of your left headlight? If so I see that the vertical alignment bubble is way negative or aimed downward. The shop manual states to put the bubble in the orange marked zone on the gauge. As you can see from my revised pic there is no orange only the bold lines, so that where I set mine at.A better picture here (I used it successfully on my '96 Sable):
I'm using Nu-Finish auto polish per recommendation by one of maintenance techs at work. If the lenses are still clear it's suppose to protect from the UV's and chemicals that dull the plastic.What are you guys putting on your headlight housings to prevent the lenses from oxidizing?
No aftermarket supplier makes them, you'll have to make them yourself.I have an 04 SE I would like To get Projectors for it , does anyone know where I can get them ? I Tried The HID Conversion . But since I have the daytime running lights they won't work ! Any information would be appreciated . Thank you
I would recommend upgrading the harness first. In order to retrofit in projectors, there's a lot of work involved (oven, lens removal, projector fitment, alignment, etc. etc.). Make sure your headlights are clear, properly aligned, fitted with new bulbs (I recommend Philips CrystalVision Ultra's), and then add the upgraded harness.Thank you so much !! Now to figure out how to do that !!! Or should I just upgrade the harness ?
Any problems with the stock wiring running these bulbs? I've heard some people have had issues with the wiring getting wrecked with high-powered bulbs, especially the Nighthawk's, but that's just what I've heard.
