SOURCE: Dashboard Light Replacement
I've done this and it's a bit of a pain. First drop the steering wheel by taking out the four bolts underneath. You don't need to disconnect anything, it will just pivot downward so that it is not in the way of the dash. Then take out the screws holding the dash and pull it off. Next you'll need torx bits to undo the instrument cluster. It is not necessary to take off the plastic faceplate. Just take out the rearmost screws and the cluster should be movable, but not enough to get it out far enough to reach the bulbs from the rear. For that you have to disconnect the speedometer cable at the engine. It's held in by a wire clip. You can force it out with a screwdriver through the loop. Save it! Then gently pull the end of the cable out. You have to reach way down to get to it and let your eyes adjust to the shadows. Make sure the engine is cooled down if you drove it beforehand. Now pulling the cluster should pull the cable through the firewall enough to reach the bulbs. A half twist will release a bulb so you can inspect each one. Lamp # for my '93 Escort was PC194.
To put everything back, put the cluster back into position and pull on the speedometer cable from the firewall side. I used long pliers. Once enough was pulled back through, pressure on the cluster made the rest go through, but at first there is too much cable to do that which is why you pull from the engine compartment. Put the end of the speedometer cable back. The wire clip is supposed to go through a pair of holes on both sides of the cable, but at this point it is all bent out of shape. You could buy a new one, but I straightened the old one with pliers. Feeding both pairs of holes is a pain. You can cut the clip in half and do each side separately, but I did just one side and called it good. You need to bend over the wire end that sticks through to make it stay. That was ******* the thumb - I could have used needle nose pliers.
Put the screws back in the cluster, put back the dash and screws to hold it, and pull up the steering wheel and torque the bolts back in. It took me about 5 hours the first time because I had to figure things out. Now that I've done it once, it would be a 1 1/2 to 2 hour job to do it again. I had two bulbs burnt out and bought four replacements, two for the cluster and two spares kept in the glove compartment.

Look closely at the cover. You will see a small slot. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver, and pry it off. Very easy..

The link below is a Typical fog lamp / driving lamp hookup. Keep in mind that in most states, for these lamps to be 'legal' (and thus pass inspection), you must wire them such that:
1. You can cut them off (in other words, there must be a switch installed to turn them off)
2. They may only be operated with the low beams. (therefore, you must power your on/off switch from the low beam circuit)
