You can probably lean under the bumper and locate the back side of the fog lamps - there are probable two pieces of "wire" that are "hooked" behind the frame for the lamps - these wires are to be pushed towards the lamps and the wire holders will fall way from the lamp case. The light will come out and then be unplugged - be sure to use a clean cloth to install the new ones and not to touch them with your hand as the oil will cause them to burn out prematurely. The install is the reverse of the removal...Not all are done this way, some are screwed in from the fron or back, and the entire asssembly come out and then comes apart.., but just use a little common sense and remember not to force anything - you should be able to get them out...good luck...

How do you replace the fog light bulb on 2008 avalanche


    • 1 Open the hood and reach down into the engine bay for the fog light assembly. If you cannot reach the fog light assembly from the top you may need to get underneath the truck to reach it. Remove the electrical plug running to the fog light ballast.
    • 2 Remove the bulb. Unlock the fog light bulb by turning it counterclockwise and pulling it straight out of the assembly.
    • 3 Slide a new bulb into the fog light assembly. The part number you will need for the new bulb will be located on the ballast or base of the old bulb.
    • 4 Turn the bulb clockwise to lock it into the fog light housing.
    • 5 Reconnect the electrical connector to the bulb ballast.

you replace the fog lamps by going under front bumper fascia.remove the pushpins and take down the splash shield to access the back of the fog lamps.then you remove two bolts retaining the fog lamp to the back of front bumper.besure to wear clean gloves.because fog lamps is halogen bulbs.if you touch with bare hands the oils from hands will make the bulbs over heat and blow out.

Fog light bulb replacement


This bulb can be replaced without removing the washer fluid reservoir. There are 3 screws that go through the bottom edge of the bumper cover into the right inner fender guard. Remove these screws and pull the inner fender down to gain access to the back side of the fog lamp and remove the bulb.

Changing fog light bulb


I just replaced the fog light bulb on my 2008 Azera. I went under the car and removed two screws from the protective shield. I pulled down the shield and reached up and turned the fog light socket and pulled it out of the housing, remembering which side the wires were on and removed the old bulb (Don't touch the new bulb with your hand) and replaced it with the new bulb. The job took less then 15 minutes
