Question about 2001 Subaru Outback
I took the two bolts off above the light and tried to remove the fog light holder by pulling it forward but cannot get it out (on the passenger side). It there some trick to removing the fog light holder so I can remove the light glass/bulb? The glass is broken and the light is out. I looked under the car and the area is covered by the plastic covering from under the engine so this does not appear to be a way to remove the light.
Thanks for your assistance.

Check the Headlight Switch. If your headlights come on automatically check the headlight sensor and its associated relay.

No, you just remove the radiator grill and the side marker light and the headlight housing bolts and it comes out. Not a real hard job and is Real straight forward. Good luck and have a good day.

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

You change it from the front of the car.
To remove the fog light - firmly grasp the black plastic lens protector along the outer edges and twist it to the left (counter-clockwise) to remove it.
Now remove the two bolts just above the fog light - the whole thing comes out as an assembly. Then you can disconnect the socket from the back of the assembly

If your fog lamp is connected to or behind a grille, pop it out. This can be done by first removing the clips or screws connecting it to the car and gently pulling it out. (If your fog lights are not connected to a grille, proceed to step 2.)Find the bolts that hold the fog lamp in place; you may have to get underneath the automobile to do so.Using your ratchet wrench, remove the bolts.4Grab the connector on the back of the fog lamp, turn it counter-clockwise and pull it out. This should remove the actual light bulb from the lamp fixture.Remove the fog lamp from the car and place the new one in.6Place the light bulb into the new fog light and turn clockwise to lock into place.Bolt the fog lamp back into place, if you had to remove the grille, put it back now and screw/clip it back into place.Turn on the fog lights and make sure everything is working properly
