Just bought a set on eBay for my Sport trim as they were badly needed (no fog lights at all on Sport).
Usually a ground wire will just go to a bolt in the metal car frame. The entire car chassis is grounded to the battery.Just bought a set on eBay for my Sport trim as they were badly needed (no fog lights at all on Sport). I'm not even sure how to apply one of the wires to the battery negative (is the little horseshoe thing at the end of the wire supposed to go under a screw or something?), but hoping for the best, haha...
My instructions are basically "white wire to ACC+, black wire to battery -, and white wire to headlight."Usually a ground wire will just go to a bolt in the metal car frame. The entire car chassis is grounded to the battery.
Wow, thanks so much for the pictures. I have no idea what I'm doing but your guidance definitely helps!!!!!You really shouldn't ever ground to the battery directly. Ground it to a bolt in the metal car structure.
For the fuse box you can get little fuse "taps" that go around one blade of the fuse, and give you a little metal tab to stick a female spade-type wire disconnect to.
For the headlight wire you could use something like a T-tap that clamps to the wire, and allows a male spade-type wire disconnect to connect into.
Is this ok? https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0002BGELQ/ref=aw_wl_ov_dp_1_1?colid=395RZR6OT0M8Z&coliid=I1CAKDOV6HNRPThat's what I used to piggy my gauges of my rear wiper fuse
plastic surround has one way tabs that clip to the bumper only, they are not attached to the fog light housing, you have to remove the bottom panel right under the foglights and feel for the seven tabs and then press them individually away from the bumper lip so they can come out easily from the front, see below, don't try to yank them out you will deform and stretch your bumper at those clip points, they are one way tabs not spring clips. the tabs must be swung away from the bumper lip edge to come out. They are very easy to remove as long as you remove the bottom undercarriage panel and get your arm inside and feel for the tabs.Couple of questions for the LED DRL install:
1. Does the existing plastic surround attach to the fog light assembly or does it just clip in like the new one will? It looks like there is a screw that attaches but I couldn't tell for sure. I checked the service manual and it does not have that level of detail.
2. What is the best way to remove the plastic surround? I tried from the top, front, and removed the mud guard and tried from the bottom but neither way proved successful. Is there a consensus easiest way that I am missing? I feel it shouldnt be too difficult.
