I apologize if i had not answered this earlier... if the lamp is mounted in the bumper you often have to remove the plastic covering on the bumper to gain access.

you can also try to see if there are mounting bolts that you can access under the car and to the rear of the lamp.

How to take off existing fog lights on a 2003 escalade and install new fog light assembly


The fog lamp assemblies can be removed by getting underneath the front bumper and on top of the fog lamp assemblies you will find the metal mounting bracket. The bracket attaches to the vehicle with 3 small bolts that are 8-10mm (i forgot exactly) that bolt down through the bracket into the front bumper cover above the actual lens itself and can be accessed with a box wrench. I replaced both assemblies in mine in under 1/2 and hour!

AIMING

  1. Park the car on a level surface, at least 25 ft. (7.6m) from a wall that is perpendicular to the ground surface. Make sure there is no excess weight in the trunk, unless you normally travel with that amount of weight in the car. Bounce the car a few times to settle the suspension.
  2. Measure and record the distance from the ground to the center of each fog light lens.
  3. Turn the fog lights on and adjust so the hot-spots (lit area of most concentrated intensity) are 4 in. (10cm) below the height of the lenses. The ADJUSTING screw is located at the top right corner of the fog light.

How to replace the fog lights


Actually, your manual (if you have the Touring Model) says the following:

Use a wrench to remove the mounting bolt from the underbody through the hole in the splash shield.

Remove the fog light assembly from the bumper by pulling its inner edge first, then the whole assembly out of the bumper.

Remove the electrical connector from the bulb by pushing on the tab and pulling the connector down.

Remove the bulb from the fog light assembly by turning it one quarter turn counterclockwise.

Push the electrical connector onto the new bulb.

Turn on the fog lights to test the new bulb.

Reinstall the fog light assembly into the bumper. Tighten the mounting bolt.

Insert the new bulb into the assembly and turn it one-quarter turn clockwise to lock it in place.

I would take another look for the hole in the splash shield. You will need a socket wrench to remove the bolt. It is always possible that there may be a plastic cover disk of something of that sort covering the hole, or you might have to remove the splash shield itself (I doubt that), but the bolt is there. Take your time, you'll find it.

Hope this helps you.

Describe how to change fog lamp (just the bulb) on 2005 subaru forester. As far as I know the fog light assembly is fine, the bulb has just burned out. If you know which bulb to use please let me know,...


2005 Forester - It is easiest to remove the fog assembly.

1. From underneath the vehicle pry out one plastic fastener to be able to bend the light weight plastic mud protector downward. You will see the underside of the fog light assembly with one 10mm bolt directly above you. Remove this bolt.
2. From the front of the vehicle unscrew one 10mm bolt at top of fog light (this is the shorter of the 2 by the way) and pry out one plastic rivet adjacent to it.

3. Carefully remove the fog assembly and disconnect 2-pin power connector by pulling up on the release. Carefully wiggle the housing out (no force req'd).
4. Unscrew the back from the housing and replace H3 bulbs. Take care not to touch the bulb while replacing.

5. Reverse to install.

Should take an hour at most.

Need a fuse box diagram to wire in fog lights


Fog lamps are installed on the front bumper. The switch is located to the left of the steering column on the dash panel. The fog lamps are turned off by the circuit relay when the high beam driving lamps are turned on. The circuit relay is located on the right front wheelhouse panel near the blower motor.

Good luck, and remember rated this help.
Removal & InstallationFog Lamp Element

  1. Remove the lamp stone shields, the four bezel attaching screws, and the bezel.
  2. Remove the reflector assembly from the lamp body.
  3. Remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Remove the element from the bulb.

The fog lamp switch is removed and installed by simply prying the switch from the instrument panel and unplugging the electrical connector.

  2. Turn the fog lamps ON and adjust as follows:
    1. Distance between the light beam centers should be equal to the distance between the lamp assemblies on the bumper.
    2. Height of the light beams on the wall should be 4 inches less than the center of the lamp assemblies when mounted on the bumper.
  3. Install all previously removed items after turning OFF the fog lamps.
