Recently, one of our customers Inna purchased a set of LASFIT H7 lights for her 2015 ram ProMaster 1500. However, she told us “there is no way to Secure it, the clip that supposed to secure it from the factory light bulb won't work. The LED light bulb has fan attached to the light bulb which gives no room to Secure it the light bulb will just fall out”
Unlike other headlight bulbs, to install an H7 LED bulb, you have to remove the collar/ring before locking the bulb into the place.
Here are the steps:
- Twist the collar/ring on the bulb until it loosens
- Place the collar/ring onto the headlight housing
- Secure the factory spring/clip over the collar/ring
- Reinsert the bulb through the secured collar/ring and twist into place.
The above installation steps can be applied to most vehicles, however, for many Volkswagen/Mercedes Benz/Hyundai vehicles, the headlight bulbs are held in place with an extra adapter.
This is a metal adapter on Volkswagen Jetta 2012
The stock adapter can’t work with the LED bulb, so to swap your halogen bulb to LED, you’ll need an aftermarket adapter.
Here is the one for Volkswagen Jetta 2012, and a product link in case you’re interested in.
Also we LASFIT designed a new LED bulb, which is specially used for this vehicle. With this LED bulb, you no need other adapter, just plug and play, like your factory bulb did.
Actually, there are so many different adapters for H7, if your factory halogen bulb H7 also comes with an adapter, and it is not the same as the above one, please contact LASFIT service to get professional support before placing your order.
