First you will need to disconntct the neg battery cable.
Next you will need to get to the cluster of wires on the side of the fuse box closest to the firewall, there are 3 clips to unsecure the fuse box from the bracket.
We will be working with the bundle with the grey clip.
Remove this red clip.
Next, with the wire included in the kit, you will need to insert it into this part of the clip. ***EDIT ~ Insert wire into the spot to the right of the area I marked, I accidently marked the wrong place, Ive since deleted the pic so I cant mark the area I actually used....Sorry for any confusion ***
Plug in wire harness and run bundle to openings where the fog lights belong. The passanger side will just dangle where it needs to be and I ran and wire tied the drivers side to part of the frame under the radiator.

Reason: Rename title.
All that's left now is to install the lights. Im sure this can be done without removing the facia but my Dewalt is dead (literly) so I was screwing the old fashion way and I couldnt get the screw driver to fit in a couple spots. This was the first time I've taken off the facia, and with Magmania's How To: Remove the Front Fascia it was really easy...thanks Dave.
Now for a drive up to the stealership to have them activated (which cost me $20) and it's done! Only thing I am waiting on is the paint to dry on my bezels.
EDIT: Oh yeah. Don't forget to hook the battery back up!
Just beaned you!!! Awesome write up and great pics. This will deff. help when i finally get off my a$$ and put mine in...........i have only had the kit for......uummmm........a year now. Just haven't had the time to pull the fascia off.
A1 write up!
Very nice job on the install.
I am planning on getting this kit but all I want is the foglights.
It's cheaper to buy the kit than it is to buy the lights seperately... go figure.
Just out of curiousity, does that switch assembly come with the auto headlight position.
I'm more interested in whether it has the printed "A" on the assembly.
I have the same kit and mine doesnt have it, and looking through the parts catalog i dont see a kit with auto headlamps. I guess they think if you are buying the kit you have a base model and in turn wouldnt have auto-lamp.

Yeah, that or they don't want to give someone the auto headlight switch.

Actually I think newer models and or the 300's came with the auto headlights from the factory. It might have been part of an options package maybe but it does exist.
The switch assembly has an "A" in the auto postion on the switch.
I have already done the mod on mine.
I was just hoping that when I buy the fog light kit that it might come with that option.
