2011 NOX FOG LIGHT INSTALL

I ordered all the parts from GM here are the numbers (2) 10335108 lamps, (2) 12085498 connectors, (1) 20847185 trim, (1) 20847186 trim. OEMPARTS123.com has everything in stock and seems to have the best delivered price.

The connectors come with about a foot of wire, long enough to reach the back of each headlight. I used (4) 3M scotch locks (blue) on the yellow and black wires at the back of each headlight. I installed the scotch locks between where the wires leave the headlight housing and the connector so the body harness has no modification. To access to the rear of the headlight assembly I removed the tires and fender liners, I tried working through the headlight service hole and did not have enough room.

This install may not be legal in your area, the fog lights are always on with the low beam headlights and do not go off when the high beams come on.

Yep - illegal in NY. Can't have fogs on with high beams. I've been driving my Maxima with that setup for years, and never got stopped, though.

Re: 2011 NOX FOG LIGHT INSTALL

Why would you do it this way instead of running a simple on/off toggle switch to the interior? Another member here found a good place to route the wiring inside (parking brake pedal opening iirc) and then used one of those switches that mount with double sided tape underneath the steering column.

Re: 2011 NOX FOG LIGHT INSTALL

I was going for the fast, easy and simple install. Adding the switch would require a large switch that could handle the load or adding a relay. On my last car I never touched the fog light switch, it was always on.

Re: 2011 NOX FOG LIGHT INSTALL

Thanks for the part numbers Any pics of the install process? Just curious to see how the "Non" Fog light blank insert plastic piece is held in place. Also when the blank pieace is off and replaced by the chrome line that goes towards the middle of the bumper(I attached a pic of the piece I am referring to, hopefully is shows) wondering if there is factory paint under that black piece.


Also do you happen to have any rough estimate as far as total cost? My browser doesn't like the omeparts123.com site for some reason if not no worries I can try to get down to the dealership parts office to get some prices. Thank you

The blank piece is held in by a screw and snaps in place. The new fog light piece will snap in and be held in with the same screw you removed so keep that screw (1 per side). It is painted under that piece you are referring too.

Awesome Thank you for the info ! Amazing how cool Forums are, because i asked this same question at a dealership or parts department and they all just scramble trying to find the answer and have the most puzzling confused look on their face lol

3more question's if anyone can answer,

-Anyone have pictures of the total parts needed?

-Is the Trim piece (part # 20847185) the black backpart and the chrome lines, is this a all in one piece?

-When you purchase the Lamp (part #1033510 , does that come with the chrome round piece that covers the projector lens, or is the chrome round trim piece separate?

Also, seems like gmpartsdirect.com is cheaper than the oemparts123, now i am not sure if shipping or if one site has better incentives than the other, but so far the gm parts direct one is cheaper, here is what i found so far.

Lamp (Part# 1033510
List Price: 115.45each
Shown on OEMparts123 site: $81.74ea
Shown on GmpartsDirect: $71.35ea


Trim piece
Part # 20847185
List Price:$47.66
Shown OEMparts123 site: $33.75ea

Connectors

Those parts are outrageous for the actual assembly.......They are the same for most Chevy's, these are the ones I ordered and they fit perfectly, just snapped in and came complete with bulbs. I have a 2011 NOX LT

search ebay for "06 07 CHEVY MALIBU 06-10 IMPALA GLASS FOG LIGHT LAMP RL"

pricing is cheap compared to the Nissan Versa I had, $400 for 2 factory fogs and the shrouds.
