Hey guys, i've bought an OEM fog light here
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...item=7954964373

And it included everything, from switch to wire harness, but the problem is that it doesnt fit my bumper.....

I dont have the sport version, so the fog light is for my bumper alright. It has the same shape and everything, but it wont fit !!! when i tried to compare it with the black housing, it is a little bit bigger.....

Are the mazda6 for US is different than Canada's?

And any suggestion where to find a feed for REMOTE WIRE? <- like for amps.

Those are NOT OEM foglights.

I don&#39;t know how they keep getting away with selling these things. You&#39;re probably the third person here to report they bought these and they didn&#39;t fit. Even on the non-sport, which is what these are designed for, everyone says they don&#39;t fit. I don&#39;t know if they&#39;ll fit any bumper. If I were you I&#39;d try to get a refund, suck it up and get the factory setup from Trussville or Mazdastuff.com. It&#39;s quite a bit more money, but it fits great. The install can be tricky at times, but I did a writeup that will help you. You just can&#39;t go wrong with factory parts. Also, Goofy did a writeup too for another type of foglight available on Ebay that does fit, but not quite as well as the factory, but they&#39;re much cheaper.

Remote wire? Either cig lighter&#39;s positive wire should do.

Hi t mo t

Does the switch with that kit from ebay look oem from Mazda ?

If so, can you give me the part # ?

I will order later this year a factory kit from Mazdastuff.com but I also have the integrated fog light and I want to use a second switch for the bottom fog light.
I want a switch that will look oem.

Thanks for your help.

Ehmm, i got it from ebay and i dont know the part number... the switch is OEM alright.. it fits the middle switch location near our steering wheel. And by the way, the seller gave me 2 wire harness, 1 to the bulbs and battery, the other one to the switch as you can see from the pics.
