Original Installed Fog Lights Lens Glass or Plastic

Post by Scotty17 » Fri Apr 20, 2018 10:01 am

2005 SEL AWD

I was wondering if the original installed FOG lights on Freestyle were made by ford or an aftermarket brand and did they have glass or plastic lens.

I'm looking to replace mine with the original if possible.

Thanks Again

Scott

OEM fog lights made by Valeo(Belgium)
It seems to me that all aftermarket and OEM foglights have glass lenses. There are hundreds of analogues of our foglights from FORD, LandRover, Nissan, Citroen, Jaguar, Opel, Renault ... Cheap and expensive, LED and so on. Look for a match by the number of Ford 1209177. I installed (changed) a couple of new ones for $ 20 (BSG made in Turkey) and xenon (not officially). Not bad. But VALEO would be a little better and more expensive

05 AWD SEL

I finally broke down and replace my after market Fog Lights after one of the lens ( Plastic) broke. I
replaced them with the original Ford lights glass lens at ($62) from Ford.

I also swapped out the factory standard bulbs that came with the light for Philips Ultra Bright White.

WOW what a difference well worth it.
