Detailed instructions on front bumper removal. NOTE: From all the videos, it appears the CAB is different than the sedan. An example is the grill does NOT come up with the hood.

Remove wheels. Remove fender liners front. Remove three nuts per side from inside fender wells. Remove fog lamp grilles. Remove vertical bolt just inside grilles--pointing up. Remove two screws per side under hood near front of fender. Put milk crate under front bumper. Remove belly pan first. Slide bumper forward onto milk crate, disconnect headlight washer line at quick disconnect if so equipped. Disconnect fog light connectors. Remove bumper.

I have a 2007 kia amanti i removed the fog lights they were blown now i cant replace them area is to small to work in do i need to remove the front upper grill assembly and the the entire front lights...

Hmm. Dude, if you managed to remove them, then you should do the same process in reverse :-)
Sorry, but this really isn't a good question. I mean you know what's the problem and also managed to solve it, but you don't know how to put back something on it's place, what you just took mounted off?

How to replace a front fog lamp

  • 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

    Describe how to change fog lamp (just the bulb) on 2005 subaru forester. As far as I know the fog light assembly is fine, the bulb has just burned out. If you know which bulb to use please let me know,...

    2005 Forester - It is easiest to remove the fog assembly.

    1. From underneath the vehicle pry out one plastic fastener to be able to bend the light weight plastic mud protector downward. You will see the underside of the fog light assembly with one 10mm bolt directly above you. Remove this bolt.
    2. From the front of the vehicle unscrew one 10mm bolt at top of fog light (this is the shorter of the 2 by the way) and pry out one plastic rivet adjacent to it.

    3. Carefully remove the fog assembly and disconnect 2-pin power connector by pulling up on the release. Carefully wiggle the housing out (no force req'd).
    4. Unscrew the back from the housing and replace H3 bulbs. Take care not to touch the bulb while replacing.

    5. Reverse to install.

    Should take an hour at most.

    How do you replace the foglight bulbs on a 2002 vw passat staion wagon

    The black plastic grille around the fog lamp can be removed without tools. If you look through the slats, you'll see 5 or 6 "clips" that can be GENTLY released with your finger. Once the grille is out (which is about 4 inches high by about 14 inches long), you'll see that the fog lamp assembly can be removed with 3 screws. Simpler than you probably thought! It's a bit fiddly and after taking out the 3 screws you need to disconnect the electrical connection (push on/off) Then rotate the light assembly until you can pull it out. The assembly is in 2 parts and twists to separate. Don't touch the bulb when replacing as any oil on it will make it blow when it gets hot. It's a lot easier than you think and will save a lot of money (you don't need to pay dealer prices on this one). It took me less than 15 minutes to replace a broken fog assembly and I was taking my time!

    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.
