Re: 1997 Suby Outback: Fog Light
Junk yard part would be fine, around my area it's about half the cost of new. A decent junk yard has the info available as to what years are compatible. Just call them up, or stop in w/ your car year , make , model, they'll help you out.countrycurt0

Pretty basic stuff...open the trunk and move the trunk liner material away from the rear of the car to expose wiring for the tail lights...there are 3 light bulbs per side, the backup, brakes and tail lights...just twist the plug where it connects to the lens assembly and the socket will come out...remove the bulb and take it to the auto parts store to make sure you purchase the correct replacement...if your lenses are broken, there are 6 nuts to remove that lets the entire lens assembly be removed and replaced with one from a junk yard, you cannot buy these new anymore...good luck...
Check on line as well for the replacement...use search engine...2005 Ford Focus Fog Light...also your local salvage yard might have it for less...this should be a plug in unit...so no wiring concerns...Hope this helps.
To remove the fog light - firmly grasp the black plastic lens protector along the outer edges
and twist it to the left (counter-clockwise) to remove it.
Now remove the two bolts just above the fog light - the whole thing comes out as an assembly. Then you can disconnect the socket from the back of the assembly
Often times the light socket assembly will become overheated in the Montana, (& Chevrolet Venture vans) and this will cause a bad contact between the light bulb and the socket. Sometimes it will also melt the plastic of the light assembly. If this happens, replace the entire assembly.
If it is not melted, sometimes just taking a screwdriver and pushing the light assembly contacts closer together will fix it - although in my experience you usually will end up replacing the light assembly after a little while (just putting off the unavoidable).
Many salvage yards should have this part if you want to save a few bucks.
