If you have a 2013-2015 Lexus GS F-Sport, you know that the only thing that's missing is a set of fog lights. Fortunately, you can install a set of direct fit Lexus GS F-Sport LED fog lamps in place of the stock lower bumper garnish bezel. This installation will give your USDM Lexus GS a JDM look and style, without the cost factor of buying OEM.

Turn the wheel so you have enough room to open the wheel base cover and gain access to the back of the fog lamp location.
There's two clips that you will need to remove.
All you need to do is take your screwdriver and simply twist the clip a quarter rotation to loosen the clips. Then you'll be able to remove them.
Now you can open the wheel base plastic cover. You'll need to pull apart the cover so you have enough room to stick your hand inside the fog lamp location. Push the bezel fog lamp cover and release the tabs at the same time. You will be able to pop out the fog lamp garnish bezel.
You can see that the Lexus GS F-Sport LED fog light and the fog lamp garnish bezel are exactly the same size with the same clips, making your new LED fog lamps a direct replacement.
Insert your new Lexus GS F-Sport JDM Fog Lamps in the opening, starting with the wiring portion first. Then push in the Lexus GS F Sport Fog Lights into the lower bumper location.
You will clear a loud CLICK once the tabs of your LED fog lamps lock in place so you know for sure that the assembly is secured.
Time for the wiring portion. When you look at the back of the fog lamp location in the wheelbase, you'll see a huge wiring harness covered by a tube of electrical tape. Unwrap a small portion of the black tape to expose the wiring.
You will see a group of wires. What we are looking for is the THICK GREEN WIRE.
Tap the red wire of the Lexus GS F-Sport Fog Lights to the thick green wire you just located. Wrap up the electrical tape in the wiring harness and use a zip-tie to secure.
Tap the red/black wire to the ground. NOTE: We recommend hard wiring the connection, as opposed to using T-Taps. T-taps may have a chance of resulting in a loose connection, whereas hardwiring is more secure.
After the wiring is completed, make sure everything lights up. If all goes well, put all the components back in place. Enjoy your new Lexus GS F-Sport JDM Fog Lamps.
