How to install the fog lights onto the bumper
However one of the steps on there is wrong
Those tabs should be underneath and tucked in that piece not outside
K now for wiring
I had to cut the wire and make it longer and it is shown where i cut in this photo, and two plugs had to be cut off
at the black arrow, i cut it off and added a good amount of wire so i can weave through the engine bay and through the firewall with one wire, so it would make my life so much easier and at the two circles, cut those bad boys off, no female slots for them on this car.
pass the wire through the firewall from the engine bay into the car which is located behind the steering wheel, way up in the dark, not a great picture but this is what it looks like from the inside
now leave your wire for now, now you have to take apart your car
First take out this piece
Then take out this cover by unscrewing the bolt with your hand
after you take out the cover it should look like this, and you have to take this bolt out with a 10mm
Now pry down the cover and be careful of the tabs
The red arrow points to what is going next, that black tape is what i did after the wiring...there is tape there before hand, but i had to remove it so it all looked oem and didn't look like i messed with it fyi: do not unplug these wires!!
something might happen just take a pair of pliers and strip the wire some and solder or wrap around (i advise solder)
Now, you are going to have to remove that rubber tape and splice into the red wire (which is, to make sure, the top left red wire with some grey/silverish stripes every now and then) with the red wire that you cut the plug off of earlier RED not WHITE
Now with your WHITE
wire, you are going to splice it with a red wire that is at the wayyyy top, it was hard to reach this one, but you'll find it, its all by itself
that red wire is like the only one by itself, it was hard to get a clear picture and in the video its hard to get too, no light and my brother had a hard time with the flashlight
but you'll get it
if any questions, just pm me, and yes i know this isn't the safest thing ever, but give me a break, at least i tried and i did not want to splice it in the engine bay
OH and the ground, one ground is at the front of the engine, i grounded it to the bolt that is behind the drivers side headlight...and the second one is in the car, you'll see it when you take off the cover
