Default HELP Morette RHD to LHD conversion??

I have searched for months (everywhere) and I cannot find ANY walkthrough or pictures of how to open the actual Valeo projectors and flip/grind the cut-off shield. I bought my morettes to get better light output, but I have them aimed low as to not screw the oncoming traffic, it isn't any better than stock. Has ANYONE done this and can offer me any advice or walkthrough? I am trying to find the balls to bake and crack open my headlamps. And I already tried to return them..long story . Thanks guys

Unfortunately this is not a common issue, as RHD Morettes are extremely rare in the US. The vast majority of Morettes sold here are LHD. I have not seen any writeups on opening up the Valeos and I have no idea regarding a safe procedure to do so. I don't know if you can bake these the same way as the factory lights w/plastic lenses.

Thanks guys, but no luck as of yet. I scowered the HID forum and threw up a post there. With all the crazy mods everyone has done I can't believe that no one has done a RHD->LHD conversion with a H7 Valeo projector? Help please!

You could buy some Valeo LHD shields or just modify the ones you have.
