How to Install JDM Led Headlight Bulbs by Yourself

JDM or Japanese headlights of the domestic market are flashlight mounts that have a black tint for the plastic lens. These headlights work in the same way as regular headlight assemblies, and the process for installing both is similar. As the headlight mounting installation differs from one vehicle to another, you may want to check with the owner’s manual for the exact process. Still, the general idea behind the process is the same: remove the old 9006 led bulb assembly and install the JDM set.


Start the engine of your vehicle and open the hood. Remove the negative battery terminal with a socket wrench.

Disconnect the electrical connectors from the lantern assemblies by pulling them out of the assemblies. Many vehicles have a plastic tab that must press to release the electrical connectors.
