    How to change fog light bulbs on a coupe...

    Hi hopefully this is an easy one....

    Today I noticed that one of my front fog light bulbs has blown and considering the weather lately, I need to get this sorted pronto. Im gonna get a set of H3's from Halfarts tomorrow...

    My question is.... How the hell do I change the bulbs? Do I need remove the bumper (hope not!) or is it just a simple question of jacking the car up and changing the bulbs from the front?

    Thanks in advance....

    There's a hatch on the bottom of the fog light - undo that and you can get to the spring clip that holds the bulb in.

    doddle of a job, and you don't need to remove the bumper or jack the car up

    Oh a quick tip - use a mirror to see under the bumper: it saves getting a cold wet ear

    Just twist it about 90 degrees and it comes straight off.

    if you ahev a front splitter/spoiler is much easier to drive the car onto wooden blocks to give you more room.

    i changed my bulbs and found the right side to be really tricky, with the horn being there.
