I am looking for a fog light kit for a 08 civic coupe in the GVA. I tried Garage 5 and the kit i got from them did not fit unfortunately. I need these soon as possible because i have already cut out the wholes for the fog lights and i am worried that either im going to get water in my CAI or a rock will hit my water reserve tank or whatever it is.

Thanks

this one is easy, I installed this one on the weekend. how good are you with cutting wires, using butt connectors and shrink tubes ?

when I get home I will draw up some instructions for you and a list of parts you will need to find.... well I can tell you that now..

these are butt connectors


this shrink tubing

when you heat it it shrinks over your wire/splice and makes a water tight seal (GET ONLY DUAL WALL W/GLUE tubes all else is crap)

also once of each of these will be needed

I work the afternoon shift 3pm till 12am, I like it, it brings a cretin challenge to work this shift and I'm used to it.


anyways I didn't get to work on it at home for you but I will do it here at work later on my brake, I have photoshop loaded on my work computer

i could not find the connector from fig #2 at Can tire. Is that a connector that goes into the back of a 32-bit connector?

Im lost on step 4 and 5. U cut both those ends off and do what with them. 4 you plug it into the fuse box but you said to connect the two and plug it into a a brown connector?

you cut the end off the yellow wire (leaving enough to splice it) and connect that end onto the red wire, once spliced on connects that to the brown plugged blue pass through wire

on the yellow wire crimp on a new terminal and connect it to the fuse box as marked out

So i splice the yellow wire into the red then it goes into a terminal under the fuse box, then i tap a wire into the yellow wire and connect it as seen in fig four?

Sorry man im a visual learner :p
