The bumper I managed to find at grant walker parts the mirrors I got off ebay came from Germany last year, Today’s project is trying to get the fog lights working there was a loom with the globes attached to the bumper but I need the rest of the wiring

Don't know if you can split it, I didn't look as I was swapping it over anyway. If you swap it over you will need to regas it.

Hi, easiest way is to swap everything. Splitting the heater box while still installed and then get it back together right would be an absolute nightmare. Once the dash and cross member are out the actual swap is easy.
