Just got my car some fogs from ebay. Came with bracket and bulbs, they look really nice. Problems I am having.
1: How the hell does this bracket go on. I have no clue how to install this. The bracket fits, but does it go on the inside if so were does it go? Does it go on the outside of the bumper if so, were, and how?
2. I plugged them in to see if they worked. Turned on car turned on headlights and turned on the fog light button, but no light. WTF?
Guys any help would be great, especially if you got pics explaining the install of the fogs and brackets.
Hey thanks man. The car originally had them, but when the car was painted the old fogs were chucked out, cause they were cracked. The wires plug rite into the fog lights I just bought. I do have a button for the fogs inside. So to answer your question yes they were pre-wired. Dont know if a fuse went or not. What fuse would it be? About this drilling to mount I am handy with tools but I dont get it?
If you had lights before, the holes are already there. Mine are bolted to the inside, how you get there, I don't know. There is a chart under the fuse box lid that will tell you what fuses are for what. You do have bulbs in the fog lights, right? The reason I ask is that I replaced a light about a year ago. The new one came with no bulb. One more thing, when you turned on the headlights, were they on bright? fogs go off when bright lights are turned on.

Hey thanks for all your help guys! To answer your question Tom the fogs came with lights, and brackets. The headlights when I turned them on were normal bright. But the fogs did not turn on. Now I know how the light goes in the bracket, what I cant understand is how the bracket gets held up. Does it go behind the bumper or rite in the hole in front. Its almost like there should be something to hold the bracket up, but I am not quite sure what it is.
Well installed my foggies, and boy do they look good. Also installed a pair red/clear tails. They look good. Will post some pics soon. Only thing though with these new fogs, the headlights look crappy, need a new set.
