The Sewell units are plug and play.Said to be an easy install.Once you get to the fog assembly,the difference I believe is a couple of screws on the oem units vs just a bulb change.

Stock led? The led fog lights don't have any bulbs comes with built in white leds. If u want just yet hid bulbs to match the fogs

Haha ur not getting it. The 2014 fog lights are LED has no bulbs inside. U can not take out or install any bulbs. It's built closed housing with LEDS built with fog lights. Camera doesn't show the awesomeness of the lights. Lol but it really doesn't show the true color of fog light white color but these are freaking bright as crap!!

The Lexus fog lamp also features a leveling adjustment feature that levels the lights in accordance with preference. The result is optimal light distribution in all possible driving conditions.

Installation process requires only the removal of 4 screws and disconnecting the lamp wire for each. Then perform the reverse operation to install the LED fog lamp.


Sewell states it's pretty much plug and play!

Wonder if it's hard to adjust though...think I'm gonna commit to the buy!

Just ordered mine!

I have to take mine in for the 15k service and to have a rattle addressed, I may ask them what they would charge me to swap them out, we'll see.

My guess is it will be an hour of labor, $130. I'm sure I can do it, my issue is going to be getting under it to replace the lamps, I don't have jacks or jackstands and I only have a small one car garage and a steep driveway leading up to it. Nowhere to work.

I'll look at it myself before I pay the dealer but I might just wind up letting them do it.

You won't need to jack up the car to swap out the fog light housing, just pull the fender liner open (2 plastic clip, 2 screw on the bottom) to gain access to the fog light. There only one screw holding the housing to the black garnish cover, remove the screw and the fog housing will came off. Need a bit patient, flashlight and enjoy the new LED fog lights.
