remove the plastic trim either side and see if you can see any wiring looms tied somewhere. it should be a 2 pin plug.

you may wanna remove the wheel arch liner for better access/visibility

Are there any "loose" wires taped up behind the bumper area? it should be attached to the frame if you have them.

They could be, but that tends to be how most the engine wiring is moved around the bay.

Not personally, but if you remove the blanking plate from the recesses, then you should just slide and clip into place the new fog lights. I dont believe you would need any additional brackets.

Did your car already have the front fog light wiring?

 

My experience is that many Focus MK2/MK2.5 versions without the front fog lights do not have the wiring (or part of the wiring). If the connectors in the engine bay are present it does not nescessarily mean that all of the fog light wiring is present.

 

Ford offers a retrofit kit for MK2.5 versions without front fog lights. This kit costs approximately €175,- and which is a bit cheaper than buying all seperate parts of this kit. The kit contains all needed parts to install the front fog lights on a car without them. This kit contains the following parts:

 

* Fog lights.

* Fog lights surround trim.

* Light switch with front fog light function.

* Mounting hardware.

* Light bulbs.

 

For cars without the wiring Ford also offers a retrofit wiring loom which costs approximately €60,-.

If the connectors do not fit on the H8/H11 bulbs they are probably not for the fog lights.

 

As far as I can see these connectors could well be for adaptive headlights. On cars without adaptive headlights the connectors for adaptive headlights are most times present and taped to the wiring loom.
