I've been trying to figure out where I could mount my balalsts for my HID fog lights. I plan on installing them when I get home after work. (yes im on the forum at work) :eusa_dance:

I imagine it involves a bumper pull but is there any way that I don't have to? Thanks.

Once you remove the fog light assembly (2 screws) there should be sufficient space to stick your hand in there and use a beam as a mounting point with some double sided tape. You shouldn't need to remove the bumper but it would be a preference if you wanted a clean install.

do you think double sided tape is a good long-term solution? I wouldnt want to hit one bump too many and have it start dragging down the road :/
There is enough plastic under that area that they wouldn't hit the ground, they would probably just sit on top of the aero/splash guard plastic

As long as you use 3m tape and clean the area with a wet rag you should be fine. It's some tough sticky stuff lol. But like skrub said, you don't have to worry because of the plastic under guard.

I used a piece of 3M the size of the ballast and stuck it anywhere I could. For the driver side fog, it's right behind the horn...haven't had any issues. I just checked them out the other day & are still stuck perfectly - I installed May of 2012.
