Also known as the "Blue Spring" Upgrade Kit, the TechSmart® kit includes all the O-rings and hard parts to rebuild the fuel filter housing.

What Sets Us Apart: High-Temp Connectors

The ProblemThe heat generated by modern OE automotive light bulbs can melt the bulb’s connectors. 

Melted Harness 600Px

Melted connector caused by heat from OE light bulb

Our Response: To prevent melting, TechSmart's Headlight Wiring Harnesses have high-temp connectors that can withstand extreme heat. The harnesses also have 14-gauge wire for better conductivity and a “plug & play” feature that lets you plug the harness right between the factory harness and new bulb. You can even use the harness as a pigtail if the original connector is melted. TechSmart’s line of headlight harnesses covers the following high-temp bulbs: H1, H3, H4, H7, H11, 9004, 9005, 9006, 9006XS, and 9007.

TechSmart Tip: While you’re upgrading the harness, our TechSmart technicians recommend upgrading the bulb.
