Fog Light Housing Cracked

Hey All,
My fog right front fog light housing is cracked. I *think* I have found the proper part number, but when looking at another site to purchase it said 2010-2015 G (w/o sport bumper). Are the fogs really different between the models? I have the G37 Sport 6MT (2011).

261508993B is the part number I found on parts.infinitiusa.com. Can y'all help me out?

Can't you just buy a replacement, say from ebay and put a LCD bulb in it? That was my plan. Mine mysteriously cracked in my company parking lot.

Those don't seem to be the right shape. Do you mean these?

I don't think so. My link was for the G, and yours is for the Juke. Either way, you can figure it out.

I bought the Morimoto Xb fogs a few years ago and srongly recommend them over OEM. They're a better PnP decision than simply replacing bulbs.

My link was for the G and others, look a bit further down the list (it does say w/o sport front bumper, but I think that is in error as those look identical to my fog light housings). Do you have some pix of them installed? Are yours curved?

Does that site (retrofitsource) sell something that will fit the sport sedans?

Their fitment guide isn't very clear.

Agreed. If I go to parts.infinitiusa.com, I get a replacement part number of 261508993B which corresponds to the "round" morimoto lights, but Rochester says I need the "angled" ones, which don't exactly look like they'll fit. Need more input.

Contact Retrofitsource. I'm sure they'll be happy to help.

Here, FWIW, this is the GB thread on the xB fogs from a few years ago:

Please update with what they told you. My lens is broken off completely and I'd like to just go ahead and replace both lights instead of having 1 bright and 1 not so bright lol.

Pretty sure the sedan gets round while the coupe gets the angled version.

I had same thing happen this past September, found a pair on ebay that were exact replicas of the OE. Same fitment, same bulb. Replaced both and working looking great. Here is the ebay link:
