^ Did you get yours from DDM?.. Mine were also missing mounting brackets one for each side was missing. I ended up getting the brackets seperatly from someone on this site.

Here is what they are supposed to look like. In the first pic you put the grey part in behind the bumper and slide the light in from the front and clip the 2 pieces together and then hook your wire up and you are done.

can you lengthen that a little bit?
my issue is .. i dont have the black part with screw (2nd pic)
also... if i did, your saying, grey part goes behind bumper, foglight goes in front..and how do they STAY intact, the screw? (you screw it in?)

i wish i woulda had some so i coulda taken it apart and seen

The black thing with the screw is what seperates your 2 pieces. The lens in front then the grey part kinda clips in on the lens part. I can't get anymore pics, as that lens is gone.. the only ones i have are in my car.. You'd have to search the web.. Sorry.

so the foglight is held by a clip basically?

the bracket is screwed in from behind the bumper.. but yes the foglight is held on by a clip.. if not clipped right you will start loosing foglights like me.. on my third driver side one going missing now lol
