I know GM was bad about the fog light lenses falling off and I was actually looking to purchase new TYC housings until I found this:

Anybody try these or have feedback?

Your still glue-ing them in yourself and run the risk of seeing the glue or them not sealing properly. It would be ok if your a good DIYer and don't mind trying it. It would be another good route to go if you wanted some that are smoked.

If your old lens has been out/off a while, the inside is dirty and worn as well. That could make the light look different than your other sealed foglight...


But personally, I'd spend the extra money and get a new set...

That is what I ran into and had to order another one for the other side to give balance light and the lens was not even missing. $500 will get you a new grille and all four lights for a brand new look after years of fading and smoking up.

I purchased aftermarket fog lights that look just like oem and they seem to be better quality that the oem ones. I have had the aftermarket ones for about 2 years and no problems. I installed HIDs in the fogs and they look great.
