Fog light mounting

Hi guys. When we bought our 1988 GTA, the fog lights with plastic brackets were in the trunk. We tried to mount them but they don't seem to line up with the spaces in the bumper. I can see the holes where the holes of the bracket line up but there seems to be too much space. I'm wondering if there is a mounting bracket missing? I looked in all my manuals but I can't find any diagrams to see the complete mounting parts. Does anyone have a picture of them mounted or a diagram of how they are supposed to be mounted? Thanks!

Re: Fog light mounting

There are 2 types of foglights for the firebirds. 1 for 1985-1990, other for 91-92.

There should be a single 10mm bolt that screws into the bottom of the bumper (that's the metal thing that the 5mph bumper mounts to).
Then, the fog light bracket will hang down and has a swivel style adjustment to aim them up or down.

Inside this bracket, the bulb assemblies attach. They are screwed in by 2 rectangle clips into the main bulb housing.

I don't have pictures, but, google search firebird foglight assemblies. It may help

Re: Fog light mounting

Thanks for responding. I'll try to take a pic of what I have under the bumper but this is the fog light assembly and under my bumper I've got a couple holes with clips, but when I set these up against the holes they are a couple inches higher than the opening in the bumper so I think there is a bracket in between that I may be missing?

Re: Fog light mounting

Those are the right ones for the 88.
Even according to the explosion diagram, they should mount directly to the impact bar.

It could be that you have them on the wrong side.
See the diagram I've attached here...
