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

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.
