so i bought hids for my fogs, and i noticed the bulb will stock out past the rubber closeing part. i really dont want water splashing up into there by cuting a hole for it to stick out.
does anyone have any pictures of how they have it done? or have any suggestions?

It seems a little counterintuitive to have HID fogs. Fogs aren't for very bright light since the conditions they're used in would result in lots of light being reflected back at the driver. Placing them lower down and not making them as bright stops them from just making a huge ball of light in front of you during a blizzard or fog.

Wtf? Do you even think about what you type? Do you talk like that? If you have to ask if he understands you, didn't you just answer your question?

it did at first but then i moved the rubber grommet down the wires and closer to the bulb. and if your still worried just put a piece of tape to hold it in place.

And this is why i loved mobile HID kits, the bulb i used was short but i had to bend the metal piece inside of the fog light for the bulb to fit as that was causing the bulb not too seat right(Check that). If you bought some cheap, crappy HID's off some cheapo chinese dealer you get what you pay for.The bulb might just not fit....

I had a Mobile HID kit for almost 3 years before a racoon ruined the kit. For a few years in between I utilized basic yellow fog bulbs until I got new fog light housings, etc. By then Mobile HID no longer made a kit for that bulb and has since stopped producing kits for the automotive world and now simply focuses on tractors and farm equipment even though there kits were by far the best(going on 5 years with the HID headlight, same bulb same ballast etc) they couldn't keep up with the cheapo kits from over seas. I ended up buying a ddm kit in which case i had to bend the metal shrouds inside the fog lights in order to fit the bulb in. While it was a bit longer, the bulb itself was taller-hence why I had to bend the metal shroud but it did not protrude any farther out the back of the housing and i mounted it like a normal hid, cut a slit in the back of the plastic cover and haven't had a problem since. Driven to newport in a thunderstorm/monsoon, cold weather, warm weather no problems. I do have the bottom gaurd in place just fyi

Heres a couple for you, i didn't have to cut the rubber gasket too much either to make it work, fits snug and no water/moisture in the bulbs

This is what I did for mine. They've been working fine ever since.
