I did that 7 years ago following the shop manual information. You basicaly acces the lamp socket from under the bumper - Be sure to use long-life bulbs. Mine have never burned since replacement 80,000Mi ago.
I drive with parking lights ON at all time and I made a modification to connect these "fog-lights" with the parking lights not just with the HID headlights like they are stock. So I use HID's less...
Speaking of which I learned from my Sony TV that HID bulbs do not like to be turned ON and OFF and back ON with out cooling time.
I have another Acura CL tip for your lights... the battery ground strap to the engine corodes itself easily with winter road spray. It needs to be cleaned to renew the good connection of the alternator ground to chassis thus HID lights are noticeably brighter. (in car electricity a circuit is made of a + and a ground - Bad ground circuit makes for decreased bad + current !)

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BULBS OF THE FOG LIGHTS?


The fog lights on most vehicles sit directly underneath the headlight bulbs. The ballast and wiring work just like the headlights, so changing them takes not much time. The procedure to change the fog light is as follows:-- 1) Open the hood and reach down underneath the headlights to unplug the electrical plug from the fog light assembly. Squeeze the top of the release tab and pull the connection off the bulb's ballast. 2)Turn the fog light counterclockwise to remove it from the fog light housing. 3)Install the new fog light bulb.Then connect electrical plugs properly. 4) Test the fog lights by turning it ON. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Fog lamps won't turn on


OK, you will need to first check the fog light wiring harness. make sure there are no worn wire lines or connections, replace if you see noticeable flaws in the wiring harness. Next, check the clip that fits over the back side of the fog light bulbs. Make sure that the inside copper pins are in good condition and, the the fit is tight. replace the wiring harness if these clips are worn or not fitting properly.

If the above inspections show no apparent wiring harness issues, you will then need to check for bulb failure. make sure that your fog light bulbs are operational. if the bulbs are ok, replace the switch.

Please rata and have a great day:)

How to change H3 fog light bulb in 2000 jeep cherokee sport?


Open up the lamp there is a clip that holds the lamp in place, replace the old one with the new one.
Be carefull and do not hold the bulb on the new one. Hold the bulb with a tissue. The nabody oils will make the lamp burn out prematurely.
