There's no real prob with the top end fitting, and I genuinely found the metal surround supports the front as a tight fit tbh. The little gap towards the front has settled since its been fitted, unsure why it happened.
Inath, they're "furry" dice, not fluffy. . Wanted em since I passed my test years ago and found em in a scrappies lol... I know folk had done this, but wasn't sure if there was a how to made
Remove light from new surround and also the plastic backing of sunglasses holder. The black backing has four clips holding it in place, a screwdriver will wedge em out, start with the clips in the centre of the surround, makes life easier
Measure and mark the area you want to cut. My tactic was to hold the surround up and make marking of where I want like this
Admittedly, I cut a hole too small, then went back and cut a little more to suit.
Remember, take this metal badboy out or you wont be cutting far
Now put the little metal badboy in, and also the black plastic for the rear of sunglasses holder. These will support the surround once clipped into place.
Take care when fitting, making sure you're getting all the surrounding headlining underneath the surround for a better finish
I notice that my surround isn't totally flush with the headlining, and I think my surround has been a little warped because the passenger side is tight which is disappointing, so I'll decide later on what I'm going to do about that..... either some glue or a new surround.
If you have any questions, just ask, I know the guide doesn't go into great detail but hopefully this guide will help someone, sometime. Thanks
I don't think there is anymore detail needed... although what some would consider a very simple job to do..... its a great post that will definitely benefit someone that has maybe a lack of confidence in doing the job themselves, once they see how little there really is too it.
I'm a big fan of How To's for everything... especially the easier jobs, purely because they actually benefit more people and make people braver to take on bigger jobs.
As long as they take the same bulbs as Ford oem fogs, I'd definitely get these ones if i.needed em. The webpage doesn't state what bulbs are used.
Lenny is exactly right, a few pics and a 'how to', even for a simple job, will give less experienced motorists the confidence to do these sorta jobs themselves. I know far too many 40yr olds that are too scared to remove headlights!!
So do I, but your sense of humour is a very dry, cheeky humour, probably best kept for people that know you... because I don't know you and you just sound like you're being silly.
[EDIT BY DANGULL]: Firstly, that type of language is not acceptable on FOC, secondly directing it at another member is most definitely not acceptable on FOC, and thirdly you'll find quite a lot of 'dry' humour and banter on FOC. cyb is a long standing member who contributes a lot to the forums - so lashing out is not really what's called for thank you.
ROB, open your bonnet, pull of the carpety stuff on underside of bonnet (or just the edges, enough to see jets, and see if they're plugged into anything other than a rubber hose. If so, they're heated.
It's gonna be a very lucky person that buys your car once your done with it.... especially if they like cars with loads of features and extra benefits.... and don't like like a boy racer has driven through halfords with his dads credit card.
