SPEAKER: If you own an '87 to '93 Mustang GT or a '93 Cobra, it's likely that you have had, or currently have, the problem of a broken fog light. Now, these fog lights, they catch road debris or rocks, and the lens breaks, and then you lose your light. Just doesn't look good going down the road. Now, we've got covered with brand new replacement 5.0 Resto fog light lenses that have the correct glass lens, has the new nuts, the new mounting stud, and new mounting bracket, and even features the correct factory electrical connector for plug and play installation.

Now, to remove your old one if it's broken, you want to put on a glove, because that glass is sharp and you may cut yourself. Now, the factory nut is a 9/16. Go ahead and remove that nut. Then you can unplug your electrical connector, grab hold of the light, and pull it out through the front of the bumper cover.

Now, the new nut on the new fog light is actually a different size. You want to grab you a 17 millimeter. To reinstall, you want to make sure that the bracket stays on the stud. Then go ahead and feed the electrical connector through the oval hole in the fog light bracket. Then go ahead and slide your fog light into place, and get the stud lined up in its hole, making sure that adjustment bracket stays in position.

Now you can go ahead and slide your nut on. Just kind of run it down by hand, and position the light as close as you think you can get it, and then tighten up the nut. All right. Tighten that nut down, and go ahead and plug your electrical connector back in.

All right. And then take a look at your finished product, and as long as everything is centered up then you're done.
