Have fogs, have questions

Well, a buddy gave me fog lights for my 08' Focus and I'm curious on what I need to mount them and what to do about the switch.

I got the fog lights and the inserts that go into the bumper, nothing else. Looking at just the inserts and the fogs there is no way to mount the two together, am I missing something or are the mounts under the car going to be there?

I'll snap some pictures -


I know I'm going to do the wiring myself - I've got some HID's I'm planning on installing, but what I want most is the factory headlight switch so I can just pull out to get the fogs, no tacky switches anywhere in my car...

How hard is it to swap out that headlight switch?

I wrote a "how to" guide on the factory install kit and added pictures. On my phone right now and can't post the link but it is in the how to archive under 08-11 fog light install. All the wiring steps and whatnot for the stock switch is in the guide.

Pm me if you have any other questions.

When you pull off the plastic insert on your Focus where the fog lights will go, you will see how they mount. The inserts just cover over the fogs, and don't actually connect to them at all. If you plan on using the factory headlight switch, you can find one with Fogs for like $30 on eBay. Swapping out the switch is pretty much pull out, push in. It's simplicity on a whole 'nother level. I got an OEM switch before deciding to go with an alternate switch, which I absolutely love. Follow VonKrauses how to, as it will answer every question you may have.
