: Pre-Facelift Projector Headlights?

10-28-08, 11:14 AM
Hey guys. I have a pair of stock projector headlights from my 2001 cat, but i want projectors for my 99cat sport. Is there any way to take the "intrenal projector asse." out of the old one to put into my new headlight asse? I know the WHOLE assem are not interchangeable. If not, anyone k now the cheapest place to find projectors for 97-99 cats? Did any early-year cats come optional with them or will i have to order them from cross seas? Thanks.

Yes, it's possible. I've taken apart my headlights twice and sealed them up with no problem. You could remove the internal reflectors and replace them with the projectors. If i lived near your or something like that i could do it myself. Simple switch but they may not be exactly swappable. I bet they are but only one way to find out. If you're willing to ship them to me i would do it for a small fee or even free. Hell i've always wondered if someone was thinking the same thing. One problem is that the 97-99 OEM lights have the light patter spreader on the lense. I'd love to swap them for you but hey whatever you want to do!

Why can't you just swap the lights?

Pre-facelift(97-99) and the facelift(00-01) headlight assemblies are not interchangeable. That's what i'm told at least. They are sold separate too so i'm pretty sure everyone knows what they're talking about. =/
