: Where to Mount Ballasts with Zip Ties (2002 Escalade HID Conversion)

08-28-09, 11:56 PM
My HID conversion kit just arrived and I am eager for the install (with battery relay, thanks to my previous post). However, I wanted to ask about the best locations to mount the ballasts. I am planning to use the bolt next to the washer fluid reservoir closest to the radiator for the driver's side ballast but cannot find a convenient spot on the passenger's side thanks to the airbox. Where have you all mounted the ballasts with 02 conversion kits?

Also, did you have to cut a hole in the dust cover that covers the bulbs and run the wires and seal with the included grommet? Is there a way without cutting the rubber cover?

Thanks for all the help recently!!

On my 02 i just screwed the ballasts right on the plastic below headlight.. And yes i had to cut the holes in mine.. sealed up nice and never had a problem..

Hi, I also own a '02 Escalade. Very interested in upgrading my lights as well. Which brand did you get for your HID conversion? Did you end up finding a spot for your ballasts?
