Default DIY Plug and play projector fog lights

All started here: http://www.subaruxvforum.com/forum/l...mpreza-xv.html

This works for BRZ, impreza, crosstrek, forester, outback and any other car that uses this set of 4 bolt fog light design

Now this is the DIY

So this is a 4/10 on difficulty scale.

Tools needed:flat head driver (or strong nails to remove plastic tabs) and a 10mm socket + wrench, electrical tape and zip ties

Just to compare





Step one: Find fog light splash guards. (in the front near the fog lights) Remove the 3 tabs in front and side (you can use a flat head to help or your fingers) and bolt from fog light splash guard. Do not remove the tabs that attach to the mud flaps to splash guard on the back.



There are 3 in total once the pin pops out the tab comes right out.


Step 2: Remove bolt. 10mm bolt on the side of the splash guard

step 3: remove the 1 bolt holding the fog light, it will be on the bottom inner corner of the housing. Also 10mm (btw non of this bolts are tight at all)

Step 4: attach the supplied PNP adapter to the OEM bulb plug



^supplied plug


^adapter attached

step 5: connect the PNP harness adapter to the new projector fog lights (red to white) (black to black)

Step 6: install new projectors (on the back of the projector there are arrows that till you how to orient the projector) do not over tighten the bolt, it will be hell to remove in the future)

Step 7: zip tie loose wires and electrical tape exposed connections

Step 8: reinstall splash guard, recommend removing pin from tab first as shown below then push the pins all the way through.


And your done

Here is a picture of them, but suns out and the right side, OEM, is in the shade of the house and the left side, projector, is getting hit by sunlight so not useful for output comparison

Like the pictures! Been under there a hundred times myself.

Already have the Outback housing with HIDs but wonder if they sell just the projector housing/glass lens instead of the whole kit (ballasts/bulbs).

Not that I need projector fog lights.

No pictures of the output?

^ it's still to bright out, will take pictures later today.

Also, I don't have them hook up but this does have CCF lights, AKA Halo rings, I just don't know if I want them always on, DRL, parallel with fog lights, or separate switch

I'll be getting HID kit soon, before winter hits.

I posted pics of these with the halo and the output on the other thread a while back. I had the halo connected to the parking lights so I can turn them on/off in the daytime. Lemme see if I can dig it up.
