04 fog light removal

Post by Mr Kleen » Thu May 25, 2006 9:13 am

is the easiest/fastest way to remove the fog lights from an '04 WRX to take off the front bumper cover?

why are you taking off the bumper cover, FMIC? I dont think you have to remove the lights to take the cover off. but if you do there are like 3 screws that you need to remove, then just unplug them and you are done.

I sort of figured that I'd have to take off the bumper cover. not that it's a big deal, just wondered if there was a short cut. yeah, I'm that lazy.

possibly. i think i'm the only one on the planet who actually misses having them. go figure.

not sure they'll clear the FMIC piping though...

once I get them out you can see if they'll fit. I'm keeping the switch, wiring harness and surrounds (they're the wrong color black anyway :wink: ). I plan on replacing them with something better one of these days, but it may be a while before I get to that project.

I wonder how much of the wiring harness is attached to the lights and how much is already there? may just need the lights, switch and surrounds...

Even though I don't have fogs, all of the wiring is in place. Behind the covers up front is the harness that you plug into and back at the drivers side there is the end of it. I'm guessing they do it so that dealers can install them quickly when a customer requests them.

i'd let them go awful cheap (either the catted or the catless) the only issue is they both have a hole from where the EGT probe was located. You'll probably need to have a bung welded on to close the hole. say 50 for the catless, 100 for the catted. they're just taking up space, so no rush.



(yea, i see jokes coming)
