Question about 2003 Buick Regal
Fog lamp assebley removal
Hi, the reason your fog lamps is filling up with water is that the seal between the outer lense and the backing part has failed, now their is no way of repairing this as once the water gets in its to difficult to get out and seal again.
The only option you have is to buy new fog lamps they are not expensive to buy and are easy to replace.
What causes them to leak like this is when they get hot and cold due to the sun being on them this causes the plastic to stretch and then shrink when it cools again, this then causes the bonding between the two halves to fail allowing any condensation and water to form inside the fog lamp.
Failing to change these lights could cause the electrics to short out and then this could cause problems with the fuses and wires in the car so changing this as soon as you can to prevent further damage to your car.

I had same problem. I bought a used HVAC control head and fixed it that way.
(Prior to doing so, I removed my original control head, took it apart, and looked for bulbs to replace -- but couldn't find any. I think LEDs are used instead of bulbs, as I recall. The problem, I figured, was with one of the electronic components on the little circuit board in the back of the control head, because LEDs usually will not burn out like an incandescent bulb eventually will.)
Then, I had to send the used one back for another, because the used one (from a junk yard) did not light up either. This was done for free, however, and I finally got one that worked. Then I used the buttons from my original unit because they looked cleaner than the ones on the replacement unit. The final result was satisfactory. The HVAC control head does light up at night, dims properly with the cluster dimmer, and controls the HVAC as it should.
Where to get it from a junk yard? Sorry, I can't find my notes on the website but I did a Google search on used auto parts. It was a company that had access to "junk yards" across several midwest states and maybe nationwide.

SOURCE: signal bulb on 2003 buick regal
To change front turn signal –
open the hood; look in back of headlight; two white clips; pull straight up, and then whole headlight comes out including turn signal; it is all one unit; remove rubber cover, then you take bulb out of unit. Mechanism that bulb fits in will need to be turned clockwise (looking from the front) and pulled to get it out of the larger unit holding all lights. Be sure and put rubber cover back on before re-inserting the two white clips.

SOURCE: replace the fog light bulb.
you don't. you disconnect the wire on the back of the light assembly and then the bulb twists counter clockwise and pops out, to re-install reverse the procedure. the wire is accessible from below the car under a black plastic flap the pulls down out of the way directly underneath the fog light.
