Stock Foglights

Hello everyone,

Just a quick question regarding the stock foglights. Is there a special bracket built into the bumper that mounts the fogs or do they mount directly to the fog light inserts? I have the fogs but not brackets and I want to do it right. Pictures of the setup would be helpful!

Thanks!

The fogs should have a black plastic 'trim' around them, which clips into the bumper. Where did you buy the fogs? Post a pic and I can tell you if they have the black plastic trim that clips in or not. If you bought them somewhere online then they will have the trim.

I didn't buy them yet. Here's a link:

So the black trim around the fogs will clip to the inserts or the bumper itself? I have the inserts in the bumper already.

yep, they just clip in to the back of the bumper, super easy. Those are very similar if not the same ones I ordered when I got my ss/tc body kit.

Damn, I won't be able to do this without modification then. My car is an LT that had the regular black bumper inserts (removable) so I removed them and bought fog light inserts. I guess my bumper doesn't have the part that the trim clips to. I was hoping it just clipped to the inserts

They WILL clip into the inserts. The SS bumper doesn't have inserts which is why they clip directly onto the bumper.
