Default Instructions for replacing fog lights?

Hello all, I find myself needing to replace at least one fog light (busted out while at valet) and was thinking that I might upgrade to the new 2014 LED fog lights. Does anyone have instructions for replacing fog lights on the LX570? I have searched for a while and haven't turned up anything specific to the LX570.


Thanks!
Bryan

I don't own an LX but I'm pretty sure you can access the fog housing underneath by removing the undercarriage cover. The fogs are usually held on by 2-3 screws. If accessing them underneath or through the wheel well doesn't work out, you might have to remove the bumper.

I found a "how-to" under the RX forum:

http://www.clublexus.com/forums/rx-t...-sewell-2.html


Changing the fogs for the LX was similar, primary difference was that each fog light is held in place with two screws instead of one.

Also, I found that the wires were reversed on my fog light harness (this isn't a problem for incadescant lights, but caused the LEDs not to work). I was able to reverse the wires by popping out the green plastic guide inside the connector and then pushing in on the sides of the leads to release each wire. Not quite the same as http://my.is/forums/f221/diy-repinni...ectors-442984/ but similar.

Not quite plug and play, but not rocket science either.

As an aside, I wonder if all 2013 LX 570's have their fog light connectors wired backwards?
