Not as difficult as it may seem.

Here is a useful PDF file about installing fog lights and I referred to it quite a bit for specific details.

Step 1: Take off the bumper.

Step 2: Find markings on inside of bumper. I used a White Out pen to trace lines so i could see them better. You need to cut between the two indicated lines, so I just put my white line between the two. There is also a circle outside of the lines which indicates where you will need to drill a hole.



Step 3: Cut your bumper. A Dremmel drill works really well for this step. I would suggest you wear protective eye glasses because I had a close call with some burning rubber flying off the drill and hitting just under my eyebrow leaving a nice burn mark.


*Note: I had not yet drilled the hole in this photo below.


Here is why you need to drill that hole. This screw opening has to fit through the hole.


Step 4: Screw the inner fog light black bracket to the painted outer cover.



Step 5: Screw fog light into place (1 self tapping screw). Make sure you have attached your spring nut onto the cover. See step #24 in the PDF file.


There ya go! :D:D:D

Maybe a mod should move this DIY to the Lighting section. ??? These are "Accessories" to add, but they are not OEM Honda lights though.

@Pauly99to17 Did you not have two black plastic thing on the front where they shouldve been before?? I thought they would just screw out in the back or something. You can see them in my avatar, they're the two black plastic pieces, they seem seperate from the bumper. Im thinking about going ahead and getting foglights but was just wondering if the sedans had those things as well, as I'm trying to avoid too much cutting/dremmel. Great DIY!

There's no cutting involved what-so-ever on a coupe. Pop the black plastic cover off and install your fog lights. DX/LX sedans do not come with fog light cutouts which is why cutting the bumper is required. EX sedans already have the cutouts done.
