It's a bit harder on the 97 if you have a Talladega model. Reaching won't work. You have to half drop the lip bolted to the bottom of the bumper (this is part of what makes it a talladega). You'll need 7, 8, 10 mm sockets, a torx driver, a little luck. A lift helps tremendously as there are only a couple inches to work between car and ground.

Drop the lip, then get in there and undo the bulb. Reverse

Not easy. You have to reach around the back of the spoiler & remove the light from the back/underneath side.
Then you can replace the bulb. Getting it back on is even more fun.
Be patient & think

I don't know how to change the head light on my 1997 Jeep grand Cherokee. there doesn't seem to be any screws to loosen the light.


Hi Clint,

I just want you to know that you are not crazy or blind!

The reason you cannot find any screws is because you are dealing with a snap-together vehicle.
If you only want to replace the bulb, you can reach around the radiator support and twist the bulb retainer to remove it and the bulb. If you are wanting to replace the ENTIRE headlamp assembly, follow the instructions below.

REMOVAL

Grasp lower edge of headlamp lens and pull straight back (away) from Grille Opening Reinforcement (GOR) . Disengage lower adjuster pivots from lens assembly.
Grasp upper edge of headlamp lens. Pull straight back (away) from grille opening reinforcement (GOR). Disengage upper adjuster pivot from lens assembly.
Rotate bulb lock ring counter clockwise. and remove ring and bulb from lens.
INSTALLATION

Replace by seating the assembly in the lamp housing and turning the lock ring 1/8 turn clockwise to secure.
Align upper adjust pivot into headlamp opening and snap into place.
Snap lower adjuster pivots into place.

How to change 2005 Corvette fog light bulb


Fog lights are simple, but tight as you would expect.

You will need to jack up the front.

Remove the front fascia closeout panel and right and left lower cowl/spoiler.

Un plug the electrical to the back of the foglight, reach up in and unscrew the bulb. A bit tight. It is about a half or three quarter turn. Pull the old bulbs out.

Install in reverse.

You may need to adjust the beam if you tug to much.

Once you remove the access panel and then pull the brake cooling duct out of the way (just snaps in place...).

It was not necessary to remove the small air-dam corners on my car (nor is it specified in the service manual), but it it make the job easier, it is only two or three screws per side.

Thank you for suing fixya and be safe

Replace fog light on a 1993 2.2L Celica GT


The bulb is removed from the back side & the lens is sealed to keep it waterproof and shouldn't be removed.

On most of these, you have to get access from behind, even if it means you have to remove the unit itself, or parts of the car, to gain access to the rear. Once you do, it's an easy replacement.
good luck.

There is a small square "trap door" in each wheel well directly behind the fog lamps. You can pry it open and access the fog lamps. They just twist loose.

How to change fog light bulb


Open the engine hood and you'll see there is a plastic housing holding the head light ans side light to the frame. There are two wing nuts and one wing bolt holding it all together. Remove those and pull the headlight and side light housings out from the frame. You'll be able to access all of the lights now.

Burned out fog light


You have to remove the plastic cover that is connected to the spoiler. It is the width of the car. After you remove it you can access the fog light. Hope this helps you.

Replace the fog light bulb.


you don't. you disconnect the wire on the back of the light assembly and then the bulb twists counter clockwise and pops out, to re-install reverse the procedure. the wire is accessible from below the car under a black plastic flap the pulls down out of the way directly underneath the fog light.

How do you change the fog light bulb on 1993 zx?


Take out the small screws that hold your turn signal/marker lights on. This will allow you to reach in and undo the three (if I remember right) 10mm nuts on the back of the fog housings that hold them in the bumper. Once they're removed, press on the back of the fog housing and the foglight assembly will pop out of the bumper. Then you can replace the bulbs.

What I did on my Z is something you might consider - while I had them out, I took them apart (just a couple screws and bolts, very easy). Open it up so that you have access to the glare guard - the cup that sits in front of the bulb. This blocks forward projection of the light, and instead bounces it onto the reflector to be spread very wide (but not far forward) in a fog beam pattern. I used pliers to physically break the guard off the housing, so that instead of a wide, shallow fog pattern, I had a forward-projecting driving beam. I also swapped the 35w OEM bulbs for 55w higher-output superwhite bulbs (this increase in power consumption is not enough to cause any risk to the wiring or fusing, by the way - it worked for years for me). Then put them back together and reinstall them - you'll find a drastically improved light pattern for night driving, and they're still low enough to the road to cut under most fog. Especially since I always felt that the Z headlights were pretty pathetic for output (at least until I installed HID lighting), this was a great mod to make to the car.
