DIY convert from HID to LED headlights in a 2011 Kia Optima

I had HID headlights on my 2011 Kia Optima and decided to upgrade to LED. The look is similar, but the installation is a little cleaner, and the LED bulbs last longer. 2 years later and they still shine as brightly as day 1.

For cleaning the battery, you can also use baking soda and water, or battery cleaner products from the local parts store.

How do you install the power source from the factory one to the new one?

I can't fit the clips with the h11b adapter. Do you put it side ways or vertically?

Thanks for sharing this video. However, i did not see you use a sort of screw adapter, did the led fit perfectly?

Also, was the led’s butt (heatsink/fan?-not sure what to call it) not touching the dust cap? I could imagine that you do not have enough space in between the dust cap and the led’s butt.

I saw the hole you made and the grommet you put in, nice job!

Do I need to get something else to make my idiot light on my cluster from constantly telling me I have a low or headlight out? I went to O'Reilly auto parts and bought LED fog lights but I'm using them as my low beams. I wanted to give back to my community and blind the hell out of all these people who have been blinding me since having my 2019 Kia forte. So the guy at the store hooked me up with these fog lights. I am going batshit crazy with this chime and dash warning.

Do you have to convert the LED for the Kia 2011 or can you just buy the LED bulb and put it in?
