Tech Night Sunday Night : Sealed Fog Housings / LED Lamps replaced with H11 Housings / O-NEX HID Lamps !!!

Although I appreciate the OEM LED Foglamps, I believe a retro-upgrade to 35W HIDs are the ticket to brighter visibility during inclement weather by such as fog, rain, and snow.

FYI : Due to the technical nature of this mod / installation, I will NOT include a DIY.

Follow my Road to SEMA 2021 build here and on IG : @Toyota_Shinkansen

Here we go !!!

The O-NEX HID System ...

51406


The 3000K (Yellow) Kit ... (I purchased both the 3000K Yellow and 6000K White individual Kits).

51407


The OEM LED Sealed Beam Housings to be removed. This area was modified to accommodate the 3rd Generation Prius Fog Lamp Housings.

51408


The OEM Led Fog Lamp Housings ...

51409


The 3rd Generation Prius H11 Fog Lamp Housings ....

51410


Once all the wiring was connected and all housing modifications completed, it was time for testing ...

51411


And ... Voila !!!

51412


51413


I've always been a fan of HID Lamps and so this was a much needed retro-upgrade for my project.

Stay visible and stay safe everyone !!!

Begin by carefully prying open the housing in this area.
I found this to be the easiest area to start.
Work your way slowly around the housing and provide a blanket underneath should the housing fall ... to prevent damage to it.


View attachment 51028

Remove the original signal light by lifting it simply upward.

View attachment 51030


Connect the new connection. Brown / Yellow wire connects with the existing Red wire.

Even from the side profile, the all new LED lights are super bright !!!

That looks great!
Just want to check if the BSM still works after the installation? Some of the feedback on Amazon claim they lost BSM after replacing with this..?

thanks!

@Shinkansen. Great upgrade to the HID fog. I notice you have headlight washer, did you add this feature because I don't think it came with the van. If you do please show us how. I also interest to know if the headlight for the Platinum is interchangeable with the headlight for the XSE. Love those projectors.

Also wondering the same thing. Those platinum headlights are sick and I think they are specific to US market platinum for now. Pretty sure the limited in Canada doesn't have them and I would love to upgrade to those on my XSE.

Hello @G4S Limited and @123noob !!!

Here are some photos of my installation ...

Remove the cover using the included plastic pry tool. The best location I found is by inserting the tool in this location above the flasher ...

View attachment 51269

Slowly work your way around the housing. Place a blanket underneath to catch the cover should it fall, preventing it from getting damaged ...

View attachment 51270

View attachment 51271

Opened and cover removed !!!

View attachment 51272

Note here the clip locations on the inside cover ...

View attachment 51273

Hope this helps !!!

Thanks for the tips. However I tried this morning and it’s just impossible to use the supplied tool to open the housing. The tool actually bend at the tip so I didn’t feel safe to use it any further… 😟

Hello @tdman and @XSE204 !!!

Thank you for the kind words.

Will be posting up the final installation on the Headlamp Washers before the Show ... stay tuned !!!

I am not sure if the headlamps between the Platinum and XSE are a direct replacement as I am not sure if the connections will be plug and play. I am sure either way you will need to make some modifications !!!

Happy Sunday Sienna Chat Folks !!!

Tech Day Sunday : JDM Sidemarkers Installation Complete !!!

I’ve always been a fan of JDM Sidemarkers, when done correctly.

Having been into customizing since the early 90’s, incorporating these if not originally equipped was a popular choice.
And so in homage to the 90’s this was a tribute !!! And of course, it’s great to add additional visibility and safety
🙂


Because of the technical installation, there is NO DIY provided here.

Toyota Original Parts ...

51632


51633


Some of the tools I used ...

51634


The control unit from www.CorsoMotion.com ...
This allowed me to use the sidemarker as both a Parking Lamp and as a Signal Flasher.

51635


Pierced !!!

51636


Leveler used throughout for accuracy ...

51637


Installation successful !!!

51638


The clear lenses work well with the Blizzard Pearl finish so it is a subtle accent ...

51639


Have a great rest of the weekend !!!
