Installing Fog lights on XLS

Postby TylerAxis - January 22nd, 2012, 3:57 pm

I just ordered these fog-lights for my XLS http://www.carid.com/2005-ford-escape-headlights/ri-fog-lights-308266.html

Question- Since the truck didn't come with fog-lights, how do I get those "louvers" out of the fog-light area? Do the pop out or do I have to cut the little bastards out? :bang:
