LED Headlight bulb installation ?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2011 MKZ Hybrid that we purchased in August with 86K miles.  I would like to install after market LED Headlight bulbs in.  I have purchased them H7 for high beams and H11 for the low beams I have done this on other vehicles with good results, but they have all had standard lights.  I noticed that mine has HID bulbs and I am not sure if there is a ballast to deal with or a simple plug and play as with regular bulbs.  The other dilemma  is that the bulbs look to be a bit of a challenge to get to.  I saw on You tube that you need to take off the bumper, or go through the wheel wells to access the bulbs.  I am sure that I can do either one, but was hoping that maybe someone else has attempted this and has some pointers to share.  We have gotten used to the brighter, whiter light of the LED bulbs and really would like to upgrade.

Yes, your MKZ with HIDs has a ballast.
