In some respects the '07 was easier. The van is prewired somewhat, but there is still some wire routing and connecting. For me there were two difficult areas.
Under the hood, on the passenger side, nearly up against the firewall is the "under hood fuse/relay box". This has to be separated and two wires pushed into the back of an 18 pin connector located within that box. And then the whole thing buttoned back up. Whew, I bet I spent an hour-and-a-half performing that step. Everything inside that box is saturated in die-electric grease and it was pretty difficult. Plus, I wanted to be 100% sure I got the 2 wires in the correct locations avoiding future electrical problems.
The other difficult function was installing the switch into the dash. Dang, I was at wits end to get that switch panel out of the dash. It finally came out, but I was sure I was going to break something. I did lose a couple of wire clips, but was able to eventually get everything back to gether perfectly.
I've painted a gloom and doom picture, but it all worked out in the end. For me the impetus was to save a couple of hundred bucks.
Review the instructions here and go for it. (Scroll down to fog lights)
Hey Mike, I got done with all the external wiring and save the best part for last... Got any tips on how to get that switch panel trim out? I think I tried for about 10 minutes and decided to call it a day.sixtn39 said:... The other difficult function was installing the switch into the dash.

Thanks Mike! Got it off. Finished-up the install. Everything works nicely.sixtn39 said:Perseverance, ewoo. It is very difficult.
I don't have the time to look for it now, but I believe another member installer drilled out the blank switch cover at the location he chose to locate the fog light switch, which helped him, he thought, to remove the blank.
My advise is to keep pushing and pulling. I thought for sure that mine was going to break in two, but the plastic was very tough.
Mike, looks like yours is pretty good but the issues might be present on your passenger side.sixtn39 said:I don't know, ewoo, I do not see any difference between those gaps on my '07.
If you are referring to the bumper sticking out horizontally from the headlight, my van does not have that problem either.
