I've searched the archives but can't find anything specific to the W8 HID headlights and wiring the car-side for the leveling motors. There's 2+ and 2- on the four smaller pins. The motors I put into the other lights I've done of course are the three wire ones.

Any idea which is supposed to go where? I'm wondering if there's just a way to put the wires to the leads and testing them but I'm really worried about frying something.

Thanks for any help!

There's got to be someone out there that knows how I can get at least the schematic for the W8 headlights. I just need to know which wire is what on the four pins coming out. There appears to be two + and two -. On the three wire motors there's a ground, 12v and then the signal wire.

Any ideas on what to do on these other than taking the lights apart?

Thanks guys!
John

Yeah, I got an idea :)

Connect all of these wires to the automatic leveling control unit that is supposed to be in the back of you car.

I currently don't have any wiring diagrams on hand, but it's quite some work. the cables go from the headlights to the wiring points in the a pillars and then on to the back of your car.

You will also need the automatic leveling sensors on the front and rear axle.
