    Hey guys,
    I'm installing fog lights I got from Rakuten.com and ran into a little hitch. The only thing through the firewall was the switch so I have 2 wires to connect in fuse box and I'm not sure how to do it. The white wire is the power going to the lamps, can I buy a connector and plug it right into the fuse box like the wiring that comes with the PC set? Other ideas? This would go into the slot right above the white wire already plugged into the fuse box.

    The 2nd wire is green, this is the ignition/on switch. Can I tap it into the brown wire in the bundle going into the fuse box? Is this the same brown wire below the dash?
    Thanks for any help and insights.

    kawita, yes you can put a connector on the white wire and plug it in to one of the empty terminals in the fuse box. However, I'm not sure whether the green wire should be connected to the brown wire in the fuse box that you mentioned. You have run two wires into the car for the switch, so why not run one more and tap into the brown wire behind the dash as outlined in the instructions for the OEM foglights?

    Woohoo pulled the trigger! Just a note on your site the price is $114 but there says $109 but the link goes to a bad page. Look for ward to the install!

    PS: Also paid via paypal. When I clicked continue to Prius chat site it went to a blank page and stayed that way. Now I got a paid note form Paypal but the site says I never made the transaction so far. Any suggestions?

    Everything you need comes in the kit. In fact, it comes with extra screws. so when you have extra screws at the end of your installation, don't panic. ;)

    Well I got mine delivered from Japan and it has no screws, zip ties any such thing with it. My friend sent it to through someone who was coming from Japan. He carried it in his hand carry so he disposed the packing to save space. I am guessing the he didn't notice the small packet of screws while disposing the packaging. But these shouldn't be hard to find locally

    You only need one screw on each side to secure the foglight into the shrouds. The screw goes in the side opposite the two that slide into the openings in the shroud. Then a few zip ties to secure the wires out of the way and get everything neat.

    got it, thanks. My car is on the way from Japan, will take around 15 days to get here. Then will do the install.
    Will come back here if needed to know anything.

    Is there any way to buy just the drivers side lens/bulb?

    I have a 2010 Prius 5, however, the drivers side fog is cracked. Toyota wants $160 so even the full kit is cheaper than that, but I figured I'd see if I could just get one. Also is there any way to order today and get it to 60101 by Sat?

    I'm in Chicago now and need it for the ride back to AZ. We leave on Sun.

    There are many available on eBay and Amazon. FYI, if you are looking for a replacement only, and not a complete kit, you can search for many Toyota models such as Yaris, RX350, the previous generation Sienna, Camry, and Corolla. They all use the same foglights. Just be sure it has the 4 mounting tabs on the foglight housing.

    The OEM or takeoffs cost just as much for one as the whole kit with wiring harness and switch for aftermarket.

    If only the lens is cracked, as in hairline, it is still usable, till you can remove and replace it.

    Unfortunately it's more than a hairline. Here's a pic...

    Yikes, looks like you lost both the lens and bulb. :eek:

    The bulbs are easily replaced, they are H11 55w halogen bulbs.

    If you have access to a dremel type rotary tool with a cutoff wheel and a sanding disk, this is what I would do. Buy a small sheet of Lexan or acrylic from a local hardware store like Lowes's or Home Depot (1/8" or 1/4" thickness, 1/8' will definitely be easier to work with). Lexan will probably stand up to the heat from the halogen bulb better than acrylic, but both might get hazy after a bit from exposure to the heat. Remove and clean up all the broken lens pieces off the foglight housing and any adhesive from the housing. Place the foglight onto the sheet of lexan and trace the housing outline with a felt tip pen, it's going to be an oval shape. Cut the lexan with the rotary tool and finish off any rough edges with some sanding. Glue the temporary lens onto the housing with some silicone adhesive, preferably some high temp gasket type and set aside to cure.

    That should be adequate to get you back to Arizona. The lens doesn't focus the light, it's just there to protect the bulb. Then you can take some time to get a replacement foglight once you're back in Arizona.

    I'm Happy with the fog light kit. My buddy RocketRob (of Porsche Rennlist fame) bought them for me for Christmas. It took us maybe three hours working together to put them in. Everything went exactly per the directions. We deviated slightly and put the relay and fuse on the inboard side of the electronics package, rather than on the firewall, so that the relay was facing up, lessening the chance of getting any water in it. We also used a little silicone lube, rather than soapy water for pulling the wire through the grommet, and it slipped through without resistance.
    Ops check good in the fog this afternoon.
