    Fog light bulb replacement

    I consider myself pretty mechanically inclined but for God's sake I can not figure out how to remove the damn bulb on the fog light. Granted, I haven't removed the bumper or put the car on ramps so I'm limited to what I can sort of see through the wheel well skin being pushed over after removing the two plastic screws. Anyone have any tips? Pics or, better yet, vids to help me out would be huge.

    It seems all my posts lately have been for VERY basic help. WTF!

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Like I said before, I didn't have the car up and was having a hard time seeing in there. I'm guessing the 3 screws have to be removed?

    PS. Our manual sucks sometimes. Why can't it show the differences on the SX.

    No the three screws stay, just turn the black part with a twist and the bulb comes out.

    Gotcha. Tried but I was at a funky angle. I'll have to get it on some ramps for some room and give it another whirl. Thanks again.

    I bought H8 led's. I've been told I should have bought H11b. I still haven't tried to get the factories out again. Busy. I'll post how it goes when it goes.

    When you put the LED bulbs in, the LED lights that surround the fog light will go out. I tried it and ended up getting standard halogen bulbs that are whiter.
