If you are unhappy with the quality and look of your headlights, you can replace them with Sonar headlights. Sonar manufacturers halo projector headlights. Project headlights have a ring around the headlight bulb that focuses the light into a beam. Most factory-installed headlights, on the other hand, feature internal reflectors that disburse the light. Although the exact installation varies by make and model of the vehicle, Sonar headlights plug directly into the headlight wiring harness feeding your current headlights. This set-up makes for a simple and straightforward installation.

  1. 1

    Turn off your vehicle. Prop open the bonnet.

  2. 2

    Unplug the two headlight wiring harnesses from the rear of your current headlight assemblies by pressing in the side tabs on the harness.

  3. 3

    Use your socket wrench to remove any visible bolts on the body of the headlight assembly. Lift up on the headlight assembly. If it gives but does not come out completely, pry it out with your screwdriver and proceed to Step 5. If it does not budge, continue to the next step.

  4. 4

    Remove in this order the grille, turn-signal assembly and bumper. Look for and remove any hidden bolts that continue to secure your current headlights to the headlight mounting bracket as you remove each successive part. Although the exact process for removing these parts varies by make and model of vehicle, in general, the grille is held in by bolts on top of it, the turn signal assembly has one bolt securing it from the top, and the bumper has pushpin fasteners below it as well as bolts securing it to the support bracket from the front wheel wells.

  5. 5

    Set the new Sonar headlight assembly on the headlight mounting bracket. Secure it in place with the bolts removed earlier. Plug the two wiring harnesses into the rear of the headlight assembly.

  6. 6

    Repeat the previous steps for the headlight assembly on the other side of the front end of your vehicle.
