Default Fog light differences?

do the sizes of these fogs change throughout the years? i bought one from a guy here a while back and just got around to putting it on and it wont fit through the hole in the bumper, so its mounted with the lens behind the bumper. although it fits perfectly to the bracket just like my broken one did. :(

I believe the 92-99 SE had smaller fogs (farther apart) than the SSE or SSEi, as well. I'd have to look it up to be sure. Sorry, the magic book is at home.

Not alot....I've assembled it in bits and pieces over the last year. 5 seperate purchases to cover all the years from 82-2002. It wasn't an easy task.

The rest must remain a secret......

I'll double check on the light part numbers when I get home. I also have one good spare of stock lights in case they're the same size. I'd be willing to part with it, but lemme make sure on the part numbers first.

NoNo....its not the bulb itself. its the entire foglight, housing and the lense etc. i have about 4 spare foglight BULBS that are all in good condition, no need for any of them :P

We're on the same page here. I'm talking about the whole damn light. Bozo.

I'm running aftermarket lights now. The kind that'll give you a sunburn if you stand too close. Cook the deer before you hit it. That kind.

One of my lights lost the fake chrome in the reflector, the other didn't. The lens cover is slightly pitted, but not bad.
