Default Fog Light HID Issue...

So me and a buddy was installing HID on the GXP (headlights & Fogs HID) so We got the headlight done, and started on the fogs. we got the connectors modded and went to put the HID bulb in and broke the inside of the fog housing.. lol It was pretty funny b/c we thought the bulb was breaking... But Needless to say we stopped and decided not to mess around with the other fog till i got a new fog light assembly.. Does anyone know where i can pick one of these up? I seen a few on ebay every now and then but there is non on there now. Im not in a rush to get it but would like to have it soon..

How in the world did you break it? I installed my the HID'* on my fogs without any problems aside from the cover cap not going on because of the limited clearance.

I have no idea, i know i was pushing on the clip pretty hard to get it to hook on.. but other than that, thats all i know.... when i get the fog light assembly in im going to put the hid light in before i install it onto the car.. and same for the left side.... But hey aside from timing the 9006 hole for the 9006 headlight HIDs those went in great...

When i take out the fog assembly, is the lens on the out side of the front bumper connected to it? or will it still be in place when i take the assembly out?

Good question..... I haven't installed the cap on mine as of yet b/c i have not found another way other than to drill a hole into the cap big enough for the wires to run through it to the ballast.... Do you have any good suggestions?
