Greetings.

I have a 2005 Focus LX and have been given a fog lamp kit. The kit has all the parts needed to fit the kit but is it as easy as the instructions say. Has anybody fitted one of these kits ? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have something to contribute?

I have a 2006 LX and like you it does not have the fog lamps. In my old car which did have the fog lamps i only used them half a dozen times in the 6 years owning the car. You dont really need them mate. If you use them when you shouldn't it only takes one jobsworth copper to give you a ticket and spoil your fun. For the hassle of fitting them and sorting it all out its not worth it IMHO.

Thanks for that. I located the two plugs behind the bumper, but i thought it couldn't be that easy and there had to be a catch.

Thanks very much for your help artscot79. Didn't take long at all once i got the wiring unhooked fron the loom and passed through to the lamps.
