I found the easiest way to change the fog light bulb is to take bumper off, takes 5 mins, 5/6 screws/clips across the top were the bonnet meets the bumper and a few clips on wheel arches then pull off and 2 spot lights very easy to Accra.
Touring Model Use a wrench to remove the mounting bolt from the underbody through the hole in the splash shield. Remove the fog light assembly from the bumper by pulling its inner edge first, then the whole assembly out of the bumper. Remove the electrical connector from the bulb by pushing on the tab and pulling the connector down. Remove the bulb from the fog light assembly by turning it one quarter turn counterclockwise. Push the electrical connector onto the new bulb. Turn on the fog lights to test the new bulb. Reinstall the fog light assembly into the bumper. Tighten the mounting bolt. Insert the new bulb into the assembly and turn it one-quarter turn clockwise to lock it in place. Hope this helps you.
reach up under your bumper and you should be able to just twist the socket and pull the bulb out. If not, you'll need to remove the two screws on the back of the housing that is securing it to the bumper and then remove housing
Look up into the bumper and see if you can access the fog light. The bulb should just twist out of the back. If not, the assembly should either pop forward or back to come out. I've heard though, that many santa fe's require the removal of the entire front bumper fascia just to get to the bulbs in which case you'd have to remove your headlights to get to the screws holding the bumper fascia on
Take out the small screws that hold your turn signal/marker lights on. This will allow you to reach in and undo the three (if I remember right) 10mm nuts on the back of the fog housings that hold them in the bumper. Once they're removed, press on the back of the fog housing and the foglight assembly will pop out of the bumper. Then you can replace the bulbs.
What I did on my Z is something you might consider - while I had them out, I took them apart (just a couple screws and bolts, very easy). Open it up so that you have access to the glare guard - the cup that sits in front of the bulb. This blocks forward projection of the light, and instead bounces it onto the reflector to be spread very wide (but not far forward) in a fog beam pattern. I used pliers to physically break the guard off the housing, so that instead of a wide, shallow fog pattern, I had a forward-projecting driving beam. I also swapped the 35w OEM bulbs for 55w higher-output superwhite bulbs (this increase in power consumption is not enough to cause any risk to the wiring or fusing, by the way - it worked for years for me). Then put them back together and reinstall them - you'll find a drastically improved light pattern for night driving, and they're still low enough to the road to cut under most fog. Especially since I always felt that the Z headlights were pretty pathetic for output (at least until I installed HID lighting), this was a great mod to make to the car.
if you look directly under the bumper just under the fog light you will see a bracket that holds a 13 mm bolt. undo that and pop the light out from the front of the bumper and replace the bulb. install is the reverse
