Mini Cooper headlights

Need help installing mini cooper headlights into a 1949 chevrolet pick up, the connector on the headlight has 7 connection points, 3 are for the headlights and brights. the other 4 i want to know what each wire is for. I think it has a motor with which you can set the light with from inside the car?

I am not familiar with the Mini Cooper headlamps, but if they are HID lamps there will be a solenoid in the headlamp that drops a shield in front of the lamp source for normal running and then removes the shield for high beam. That could be what the other connections are for.

Mini cooper headlights

thanks, on the back housing it has 2 set screws that goes to the inside and on this sealed unit with the 4 wires on the inside it also has something similar to the connections of the set screws. i saw when you switch the lights on on a mini the lights goes up and then down, i think it is maybe something like that or you can set the height electronically from the inside of the vehicle, but i still need the wiring diagram to be able to connect those wires if i want to use it.

I can connect the lights without that but i might just need to set the light a little more than with just the set screws.
