Default Remove OEM Fog Lights....

Last time I messed with my fogs, I took the bumoer off but didnt want to disconnect the washer hoses as it was going to be dark in a 1/2 hour.


How do you actually remove the stock fog housing, and can it be done with the bumper on the car?

Pull the bumper, it's probably a couple of bolts. The bumper takes 15 minutes to remove.

I had mine out to clean up the lenses the other day. its definitely easier to remove them with the bumper off. Doesnt take much to get the bumper off. Then there are two bolts on the back of each fog light. I also had to pull the lower grille cover off partway to get the fog lights to slip out. Sort of a pain, but not hard. I think the whole process took about 30 minutes to get them both out.

OK thanks....I will start earlier in the day next time!

When I installed an HID kit in the fogs, I had to bend the shield a little forward for mroe clearance and I knocked one of the fogs out of the adjustment range. When I went to aim them, the screw no longer does anything, so I have to reset it and it'll be easier with the fog light in my hand....
