    -Thumb Ratchet is best

    Don't forget the temp sensor. If the new kit doesn't have it, you'll need to use the existing one.

    Thank you! Totally forgot about that! Once I take off the old Fog Light insert I can just pop the existing sensor out and into the new insert right? Easy squeezy?

    I take it you purchased a non-GM fog light kit since you said you bought a fuse tap? If you bought a GM fog light kit, you wont need the fuse tap.

    Only bought the GM Fog Light Switch, not the kit. The kit is aftermarket.

    Thanks!

    Where did you get the pin for the switch from? What was the part #? Or did you just shove the wire in there? Any photos?

    Pin for the switch? I just swapped out the switch w/o the fog light button for the one with the fog light button. Nothing complicated thankfully!
