2019 Sorento Fog Lights

When i bought the car it didn't come with Fog Lights. I wanted to put the SX style LED Fogs on it.
I found this on EBAY tinyurl.com/y4ejchup but it says would not fit L, LX,or EX models.
Then in this tinyurl.com/y6zzeb9d it says it fits.

So I was wondering if anyone else here have done something similar to this or did this already.
Just need advice on if it would fit or i need other parts to make it work.

Thanks

No, if you change the vehicle type to 2019 EX it says it does not fit.

For cars without factory fog lights, you'd also need the wiring harness and a different turn signal switch. Probably not an easy install. The ebay listing above assumes existing non-led fog lights.

In my one vehicle, I bought / installed 3rd party Fog lights.

For this task:
- Removed spacer plates and installed FOG light assembly.
- Installed LED Fog light bulbs (instead of provided Halogen bulbs).
- Ran 1 LED bulb wire (16 gauge thickness) to Frame ground.
- Ran 1 LED bulb wire (16 gauge thickness) to together - to join into a single 12 Gauge thick wire.
- Ran thick 12 gauge wire through firewall - to optional manual off/on switch.
- Installed "add-a-fuse" onto rear wiper fuse
- Installed 7.5 Amp fuse (in add-a-fuse).

Note: Using LED bulbs (that use very little watts) means NO relay is needed either.

Very simple and clean install. And, its been running great for 4 months. And, using rear wiper doesn't blow fuse either.

5 out of 4 people have problems with fractions..... LOL!
