  • Custom fog lights fitted - Halo LED

    Hey all, it's been a while since i have made any changes to the insignia.....So here's the latest

    After installing some cheap & nasty fog light bulbs, the fog light housing melted around the bulb seal and water ingress started. So, I decide to replace the whole assembly with new pieces (surrounds, housing and bulbs)

    I purchased a full set of surrounds and the fog lights themselves from AliExpress. They arrived within a couple of weeks - 54 for the full set including postage. They are NOT genuine VX parts, obviously

    I also purchased a pair of quality 75mm Halo LED rings. I tool the fog light assembly apart (it comes apart into 2 pieces really easily) and stuck the Halo rings on the inside of the fog light, sitting up against the reflective silver backpiece. I took this opportunity to seal both entire units properly with UHT silicone sealant after running the LED cables out the back of the bulb hole. I also sealed that up with sealant too

    Taking the existing surrounds off is a bit of a pain on a facelift. I decided to jack the front of the car up and get up inside the rear of the front bumper with a plastic trim tool and bend the lugs back slightly as I pulled each one from the front. I did snap one of the lugs but luckily i had the replacement set from AliExpress. You COULD just pull and hope for the best if you do have a full set of replacement surrounds to go back in like i did

    The old surrounds need to come off on a facelift Insignia as the fog light assembly is screwed into the bumper from the front by two Philips head screws -

    Once removed, it was simply a matter of wiring the LED rings to the exiting fog light wiring. I simply tapped into the wires (Brown is Positive and Black is Negative) and soldered the connections. A bit of electrical tape to cover the solder and they were done. I have left the original H10 Fog light plug in place too so i can install normal bulbs if needed later down the line

    Finished result -

    Its a subtle change but I really like it....its different! I have control of when they are on/off too as I simply switch them using the front fog light switch in the cabin

    I will try to get a picture later on when it goes darker for the full effect

        Had these in mine for a few years now.
        halos are wired to DRLs then they cut out when indicator is selected and they change to orange.

          Would I need 75mm to fit them in the original facelift foglight housing?

              Yep..... definitely 70mm rings.
              these fit perfectly inside the reflector
