Universal Fog Light Installation

This super-bright, universal LED fog light can be installed on any vehicle and in any location desired. Yet, despite its universal applicability, you will still want to observe all of the preparation and safety procedures that you would follow whenever working on a vehicle.

Preparation:

Place a sheet or work mat down adjacent to your work area. You can use this as a staging area which will protect the components being installed from damage. Be sure to have a receptacle to hold any screws or bolts you may have to remove or install.

Safety:

Please be sure to use protective eyewear and gloves where necessary. Whenever working on the vehicle's electrical systems take care not to shock yourself.

  1. Trim Pad Remover
  2. 14mm Wrench

      Yes, I think it is a matter of both low cost and ease of installation. We seem be selling a lot of these lately. Thanks for your comment!

      This is interesting and I am seeming to see increasing numbers of LED headlights on autos in my city.
