Well i just ordered some new fog lights as one of mine was broken clear off and the other has smashed. My question is how do i disconnect the wiring from the back of the lgiht. Is that box part a plug and if i pull hard enough will it come out? Or do i need to cut the wires? Thanks. Also i'm getting some KC 6" day lighters do they plug in if its a plug or do they need to be wired? Thanks!
Well the KCs are not going to have the plug on them, you will need to butt splice the new to the old. I dont know what the factory plug looks like but I am guessing it has tabs that need to be lifted to un plug it. Your best bet is just cutting the wire close to the old light and but splicing that to the new light, that way if you need to pull the lights you can un plug them. I think that the KCs have tails (wires on them already )
I think I would rewire your KC's. Here's why
The OEM Fog loghts come with 55w bulbs and wiring to support them. The KC's typically come with either 100 or 130W H3 bulbs. There is a KC model that contains a sealed beam lamp rated at 150watt. I am not sure your OEM wiring will stand up to the increased wattage of you KC's, at least not efficently
most off road/fog light kits come with wiring/switches/relays just
double check when you order it. If you ordered the 55w variety
then you could probably just use the factory harness, but if you
went up to a higher output then you should upgrade the harness
as well - although you can use the factory switch/wiring to power the relay since that is a low power curcuit.
