    I received a pair of OEM fogs today from a fellow member and installed them without a problem. However, I did notice that the fogs liked to pivot up and down. I'm thinking I need to adjust the set screw on the back to tighten them up.

    Can anyone with OEM fogs tell me how much play they have in their fogs?

    Thanks

    Not sure why they would pivot. Mine have only the smallest amount of play in them. Maybe 1/64"

    Stupid question, but are you sure they are right side up?

    Figured out a plastic piece was missing from the adjustment screw causing the light not to sit correctly. Nothing a little garage time can't fix.

    Nothing to see here, move along. :D

    I had a very small amount of twitch but stuffed a piece of a zip strip in on each one on one side somewhere where it took up the slack and they are solid. Use a small piece of foam or weather strip crammed in the crack between on top where light/bumper meet to immobilize it. Several ways to make it solid.

    I ended up stuffing weather stripping in the bottom of the light to snug it up. Since I don't have the relay or switch to finish the job I'll have to wait and see if stuffing it from the bottom causes the lights to point too far up. Until then, they just look pretty.
