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!

Trying to replace the fob light bulb on drivers side


You can gain access to the fog light by removing the screw and clip from the front portion of the fender liner of the wheel well. I believe on that model you may have to remove the fog light to get to the bulb. It is held in by a couple bolts through the bumper from the back side.

How do you replace the fog lamp on a 1997 dodge neon? As best as I can tell, you have to take off the front bumper which I hope is not the case.


To replace the fog light of the passenger side you need to remove the fog light bolt and pull out the fog light assembly, then you can remove the bulb and put a new one in.

To replace the fog light on the driver side you will need to remove the front bumper cover so you can remove the vacuum box that is in the the way of the fog light bolt.

To do so you need to remove the Torx (star) screws located in the front wheel wells as well as the bolts holding the plastic by the radiator. "CAUTION: DO NOT UNBOLT THE RADIATOR."

If any of the screws are rusted into place put some penetrating oil them to help loosen them up.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE!!!
