AAC HID power source?

I just bought an HID conversion kit from AAC. No real instructions or videos that come with this. There is a wiring diagram but it’s pretty much useless to me……everything is supposed to be plug and play.

I have ballasts and wiring laid out and now I’m down to getting the power source of the ballast. My assumption was to use the Positive point in the engine compartment. I pulled off the top and I have no clue as to how I can get this wired in here. I tried to un-screw the positive point to maybe see if I could some out work the positive wire in but I felt like I was going to break or bend something.

Anyone have an idea on where/how I can pick up positive source here?

I bought my first HID package and it had the same small ring connector that is suppose to connect to the positive post as shown in your picture. Obviously not plug and play. The second HID set from BFxenon came with the proper connector. You should hook directly to the positive post even if it means changing the connector. Too many people out there with flickering headlights due to improper powering and/or grounding of the ballast. Do yourself a favor and change the connector !

Did you e-mail/call AAC on this? What was their response?
