This is a Pic just before sunset with Hella Fogs and Stock Headlights.


I got instructions written up in my head.

I like his setup because you can do minor adjustment with enough clearance.(Left to Right adjustment if the Light is mounted far back on the bumper frame lip)<o:p></o:p>
I will have a more detail type of pics.(Where to drill and how I ran the Micor De harness)
I saw a unused plug taped up to the Bumper light signal harnes (One red striped wire). I tested it with the parking/head lights on and I got no volts from it. So I used the Hella Harnes.
My GS OEM Fog switch is not working properly with it.
I have to take the switch apart to look at the connectors
The problem is the light intermittently works.
Picutures to come.
The Hella Micro De Harness and switch works great.

[CENTER][U]Esitmate time[/U]
[/CENTER]
[LEFT]It Depends. Really it does. For starters it will be at least 2 hours.

Bumper removal and re-instalation takes a while. [/LEFT]

[LEFT]The drilling may take 20 minutes.

Use the Long Flat head and punch a dent in the firewall in preparation for the drilling. Trust me it will make drilling in an angle much easier.

I had to drill a hole through the firewall to run wires from outside to inside.
You have to lay on your back and slid under the dash to see for some. Grab your Flashlight.
The hole is under that silver wire sourounded by that black rubber and plastic. (Hella Wire not showned)Bad Pic I know.

I drilled the hole 1 inch under the accelarator cable in the firewall. it is a save place.

**Easy procedure with a non automatic car
** May be easier on Automatic because you may be able to use the spot the clutch would have been. I cannot confirm that.
Tap into the corner light. Read and back wire? you have to use a test light to probe it to make sure it is it. (Used the Mico De blue wire in its wire harness)<o:p></o:p>
I do not want to risk me forgeting the light is on and drain my battery so I have to have the parking lights on for the Fog to come on.<o:p></o:p>

:rofl: Yea it took me a second to figure that one out too! OP nice post. I thought some Legends were pre-wired for fogs or am I mistaken?
i just reread ur question but if u r referring to the wires running from the dash through the engine bay down to the lights i do not know if they all were prewired or not

For some reason I though LS/GS were pre-wired but I'm really not sure about it. Maybe I'll do some research tomorrow!

Updated a few lines.
I have good Pics, I just have to upload them.
I will be adding more tonight.

I still need to use the OEM fog switch and clean up the engine bay a bit.
Can anyone Move this thread into the Acura Legend Generation 2 area please? I made a mistake and posted it in the RL area.
