Reason Im doing this is my fog lights were very worn and one broke from an accident I was in. One burnt out as well. Had leds in and I never really liked them. I saw this kit and thought I would try them as I waited for the new housings to come. They are  cheap, I figured why not. If I liked them I would put them in the new housings when they came in.

Well I liked them lol. They work surprisingly well. I haven't had a problem for 3 weeks now and they help so much with seeing at night.

New to old.

Thats not going to work.

You dont need to take them apart like this. I was just showing how worn it is.

The kit comes with other adaptors. This is all you will need.

Unclip the 3 areas holding the back to the new fog lights and pull up 1 inch. The wires are still connected to the stock bulbs. Unplug it from the bulb. Unclip the holder for the bulb itself. Take the bulb out and save it I guess.

Since i'm cutting the plug off the stock harness, I'm cutting the original plug inside the housing, You don't need to, it does fit. I wanted to.

You need to cut the wires from the Hid bulb connectors.

Now you will fish the wires through the breather hole trough the inside of the backing for the housing. There is a rubber piece on it for ventalation so water doesn't get in. Take that rubber piece off and put both wires from the hid bulb through that hole.

The kit comes with a rubber peice that covers the breather hole.

It fits pretty well. The rubber piece has 4 holes for 4 wires. The 2 not being used is for ventilation now. I dont think water will be an issue.

Reconnect the plugs you cut off. As you can see I just crimped them together then tap.

This is what I did for a temporary connection as I waited for the new housings to come in. If you really don't want to cut the plug this works. There are other ways too.

Time to cut the plug. Brown is black (-) and white with green is red (+).

20161101_105421Image Enlarger

Strip the ends like so. 

20161101_105527Image Enlarger

Then I crimped them as well.

20161101_110412Image Enlarger

Tape! Tapes a good idea.

Test fire.

Zips ties to hold the ballast in place.

I used the rubber hose for the sprayer as a holding place. Fits nice with it and the clip for the hose is right next to it.

Do everything above to both side and this is what it looks like.

They were bright with the old housings. Im guessing they will be even brighter with the new ones. I never had a car flash their lights at me for them being to bright. Remember to adjust all 4 lights and you should be fine.
