I have a face lift version mondeo with the triangular fog lights. I've just done the blackeyes mod and want my fog lights to match. After reading several peoples results with cracking the glass on removal I have wondered if it is possible to fit pre-facelift fogs with the triangular panel. It does look a similar shape and like it may fit but I cant find anyone that has tried.

Cheers for any help offered

As far as im aware the pre- facelift fogs will not fit the facelift bumper so you would have to fit a pre-facelift bumper to fit the pre-facelift fogs

 

or seriously modifiy the bumper/ fogs

 

thinking out loud, I wonder if you could get projector-style LED fogs and make mounts for them in your bumper?

As above, they def wouldn't be a straight swap as bumpers are different. I remember hearing of people breaking them when attempting the mod too, but it has been done. Just depends how careful/skilled/lucky you are!

 

Have you thought of applying tint or fly-eye film, or even just tint spray on the outside?

I need to get them apart really as the lenses have a dirty coating inside.

Would window tint film stick on the outside exposed to the elements all of the time?

I wouldn't know mate as I've no experience, but there are light tinting film kits available. The only thing I suppose with fogs is how susceptible they'd be to stone chipping. Have you looked into sourcing a spare pair to work on maybe?
