EX35 Headlight housings

Discussion of Infiniti's amazing (and underrated) sport-luxury crossovers, the EX35 and EX37. For 2014, the EX series will be renamed QX50, in line with Ininfiit's new naming conventions.

EX35 Headlight housings

Postby sherwooa » Wed Dec 18, 2019 11:46 am

Can anyone confirm that the headlight housings are the same for the Xenon/HID and halogen headlights on the EX35? I believe that is the case from the Infiniti parts diagrams:

but am not 100% sure. Anyone know?

I don't think so. The Xenon/HID lighting I believe is part of the AFS lighting package, which have different housings.

Thanks NJGuy. It kind of looks like the housings themselves have the same part number, but then I can't really find the housing by itself, so you must be right that the housings are different. Very annoying since I'd like to just swap the housings as the old ones have microcracks and are yellowed. Even used eBay ones aren't cheap but that may be the route I have to go.

No - ours has the projectors and the AFS, but the housings have microcracks and are not in great shape so I'd just like to replace them with ones in better condition.
