I just bought a pair of aftermarket fog lights, that came with the bracket and everything.

I noticed on the bumper there are holes, and you screw in that little thing thats on the bracket to the bumper, but to the right side of the bracket there is a stub on the left, but the left side has that thing you screw in your bracket to the bumper on it. I hope that made sense . So my question is How do I put the fog lights in. On the bumper where the fogs go there is holes for that peice and holes on the other end. there is no hole for that stub on the bracket. I hope someone knows what im talkin about Plz help if so!!!!!

I had to replace my fogs not too long ago and one of the brackets. If these are OE-style aftermarkets, then the tabs should have holes to go in. If not, then you need to drill them. After that, simply bolt them up. The fogs lights clip into place.

Thats what I thought, The bumper is aftermarket. The fogs look similar to OEM fogs.

I dont understand why there are extra holes in the bumper. Maybe for different Fogs?
