    Coupe Fog Lights

    The N/S bulb on mine has popped and when I was under the car, the lens looks fairly accessible.

    However, the Haynes manual says that on the hatch, you need to remove the front bumper to change the foglight bulb! Do you have to do this for the Coupe?

    Also, does anyone have a note of the bulb type that I need?

    Shouldnt have to. My Hatchback has a screw cap on the bottom on the foglights for change bulb. Just check this for yours to?
    Taking bumber off for bulb replacement is a bit extreme :S

    I guess the Haynes is just playing Merchant of Doom on this one then


    I'll have a look for the cap that you mention tonight.

    Thanks for the help guys
