Should be fairly simple if I remeber correctly your bumper should have all of the mounting points already on it you just need to remove the plastic covers and replace them with the fog lights. After that just attach the wiring harness and you should be done.

Re: Fog lights?

install is straight forward, not sure they send you the bolts but you can reuse the OEM ones. Should just snap right in if the connectors match which I am sure they do.

did you check further back and make sure the harness is not tucked up away. Most cars have all the wiring harness's installed so that dealer can install them quick and charge top dollar for the install even though it only takes a few minutes.

I'm not 100% sure on the mustangs since both of mine came from the factory with fog lights, but I had a scion tC and the wiring was a few feet away and zip tied up...super easy install though.

I have a 2000 v6 and it didn't have foglights. Could I still get them? Or do I have to make wire connections or something? Did all new edges come with wiring harnesses for foglights?

Re: Fog lights?

I'm fairly certain the 99-04 v6's did not come with any fog light wiring or harnesses from the factory. The only v6's that did were from the 94-98 era...possibly 94-96.

The only 99-04 era mustangs that did come with the wiring were the 01 bullitts.

If you want to add fog lights to your v6, you have to buy the lights themselves (with brackets), wiring harnesses, and switch/relay.

There are kits available from numerous vendors. CJ Pony Parts, Latemodel Restoration, VMP Tuning, and many others offer different kits..from complete kits to ones with just the fog lights or just the wiring.

The lights are not too difficult to install...most kits come with detailed instructions for adding the wiring and switch.

Yah, there's the proof

I'm pretty certain our v6's did not come pre-wired...mainly because no v6 models were offered with fog lights. So there was no need to wire them from the factory.

my bad, but thanks for clarifying. Most cars are coming pre-wired now so I just figured that these would have been too.

No, no problem at all...I wish they did come pre wired...would save all us v6 owners some cash and install time.
