Changing fog light bulb - 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe

  • Vince4334 Nov 24, 2008

    I have a 2006 Hyundai Azera and have been told that the entire front bumper needs to be removed in order to change the fog light bulb. The manual says that only a certified technician should attempt replacement of the fog light bulb. Is the fog light assembly really reachable from under the hood by simply removing the main headlight assembly?

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

You need to remove the main Headlamp housings, to get at the front fog lamps.(which is very easy, just 2 or 3 securing bolts)

SOURCE: Changing bulbs in fog lights

Hi this is a bit of a hair raiser, first of all you need to turn the wheel all the way into the motor, left or right depending .
The plastic cover underneath is only held on by some screws and retainers take these out, the cover will be loose but won't come out, gently pry it away from the fender, reach behind and unscrew the bulb housing. Be warned there are two or three different bulbs on the market take yours out before heading off to your local spare parts dealer, it might save you the time of having to go again.
hope this helped
regards Warren

SOURCE: How do you change the fog light bulb on 1993 zx?

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.

SOURCE: how to change head light bulbs on a dodge caliber

Park the Dodge Caliber on a flat paved or concrete surface. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the side opposite the headlight you are replacing. In other words, if you are replacing the left headlight, turn the wheel all the way to the right. Apply the parking brake and release the hood latch.

  • Step 2 Place a wheel chock behind one of the rear tires.
  • Step 3 Open the hood. This is to allow some light to reach down into the engine compartment.
  • Step 4 Raise the front quarter panel of the side you need to replace the headlight on with the floor jack and place the jack stand under the front frame rail on that side.
  • Step 5 Remove the fender well plugs using the plastic plug puller tool. You do not have to remove the entire fender well cover, but the more plugs you remove, the more access it will give you to the headlight assembly.
  • Step 6 Unplug the headlight switch. Make sure you are unplugging the headlight which will be the inboard plug.
  • Step 7 Turn the headlight bezel a quarter turn counterclockwise and extract the bulb and bezel.
  • Step 8 Insert the new headlight into the bezel, being careful not to touch the glass bulb.
  • Step 9 Insert the bezel and headlight into the headlight assembly and turn a quarter turn clockwise to lock it into place.
  • Step 10 Plug the wire connector into the headlight. This would be a good time to get up and go test the light to make sure it's working.

    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.
