There is a small square "trap door" in each wheel well directly behind the fog lamps. You can pry it open and access the fog lamps. They just twist loose. Untrue...in the 2008 Liberty in any case.
If it's like my '00 Grand Am- (I assume the GP and Bonneville are similar) jack the car up, and remove the splash guard under the front end; some of this is part of the wheel well, so you might want to remove a front tire. Get under the car and I believe it's held on with a hand-screw. Or... if you …have the intake resonator removed, take out the headlight and access it from above. for help see the links www.gaownersclub.com www.n-body.net (MORE)
I suspect they are like my 1999 Firebird. You have to go up from underneath. There is a panel that opens and then you have to reach in through that panel. When you feel the rear, twist it slightly and it will unlock and come loose. Be careful not to handle the new bulb. Oils from the fingers will me…ss it up. You can also take the plastic cover off of your high and low beams and each down through the opening to get to the fog lamp. You really need a strong arm to do it this way, however. I replaced mine OEM lamps (with sylvania silverstar bulb # 880ST) from the underneath on my 2000 firebird. After I got the panel open (2 fasteners) and twisted to remove the lamp holder, I found that the wiring was just barely long enough to get the holder clear of the opening. I did not jack the car up, and I suspect that it would make this much easier. USE JACKSTANDS! Also when reinstalling the new bulb I found it easy if I looked through the the lamp lens from the front. The socket is keyed so the lamp holder only goes in one way and about a quarter turn is all that is needed to lock the holder into place. Finally, DO NOT remove the screw at the top/front of the fog light lens. This is apparently an adjustment and if you remove this screw (as I did) then the spring which holds tension on the lamp assembly will fall out. It took more time to find and reinstall this spring and screw than it did to repalce both of the lamps! (MORE)
To properly access the fog light the inner fender shield (plastic) has to loosenedbut not quite removed. The fog light is behind the panel that is the front piece of the shield. Bulb is an industry 880 halogen and twists out of the lamp housing. The fender shield is retained with clips that have a c…enter shaft for tension. (MORE)
I replaced the one on the passenger side. You have to remove the plastic undercover first to access it. There is a larger bolt that holds the housing in place. It needs to be removed to pull the housing out. once you get this out its pretty easy, its just getting into the thing that is the problem.

The only way I found was to remove the entire front bumper! First, I tried removing the head/fog light assembly. Once you pop the hood, there are 2 screws in the top of the assembly, but something was still catching on the bottom. Next, I removed the wheel and the wheel well plastic, but still… could not get access to the rear of the head/fog light assembly. Finally, I read somewhere that there were 2 screws in the bottom of the assembly behind the bumper! The hardest part about the bumper removal are the two screws inside the bumper near the cornering lights that hold it to the frame. So you need to remove both wheels and enough of the wheel well plastic liner (you can remove the clips to the top and fold the rest back) to get your arm in there. I also had to buy a short pivoting ratchet to get at these ones. Beyond that, the rest of the screws and clips were accessible from under the hood and below the car. It goes without saying, replace both bulbs! :) Also, you'll want to have some extra body panel clips on hand. I don't have a writeup, but I took some pictures to help me to remember the next time I have to do it. http://picasaweb.google.com/briandmel.com/TheFoglight. You might want to try this first: . Driver's side: remove air duct that connects to your air filter box.... then remove air/filter box and intake tube.... takes about 5 minutes.... if that. From there you have plenty of space to access both the headlight and the fog light. . Passenger side: Remove the windshield wiper snorkel and the coolant reservoir.... this also take about 5 minutes if that.... and it gives you enough room to access the head light and fog light.... the space is a bit more tight to work in but its still enough to get the job done.. [Good advice, but it also helps to remove the fuse box that's just in front of the coolant reservoir. That gives you enough room to get to the fog light a lot better. To remove the burnt out light, move the wire clip with the circle of wire on the end towards the front of the car, and it will release. Then raise that wire clip up, which will release the light. Inside the housing for the light, you will find the electrical connection, which is inside a pop-open plastic sleeve. After popping open the sleeve and unhooking the connection, take the old light out, connect the new one, place the connection inside the protective sleeve and put the light into the socket. Then pull down the wire back into its locking position. Test your light. If it works, you're set. Now you're ready to replace the fuse box and coolant reservoir.] Now if you are doing major headlight work then by all means take off your entire front bumper.... but if your looking for a quick fix these might be a better alternative.... None the less, happy maxxin!!!!!!!!!!! From Maxima.org (MORE)
Answer . \nLOOK UNDER THE CAR AT YOUR FOG LIGHT THERES A LATCH ON THE LIGHT YOU HAVE TO LIFT THAT CLAMPS THE BULB IN PLACE. LIFT THE LATCH AND TWIST THE BULB STRUCTURE AND PULL IT OUT AND REPLACE IT. TO PUT IT BACK IN PLACE THE BULB BACK IN ITS PLACE AND TWIST IT CLOCKWISE.
Answer I believe its a 893 bulb. You need to remove the headlight shroud that covers the headlight.(3 Screws) This will have to be done when you turn on your headlights. You can either leave the headlights on and perform the replacement. Or you can turn on your headlights and disconnect them so the…y stay in the open position. The connector is located just behind of the headlight. Once the shroud is removed you will be able to gain access to the fog lights. To remove the bulb, simply twist the socket counter clockwise and inspect the bulb. It just takes a little time but it can be done. You will have to have the hood up in order to get your hand in to disconnect the old bulb once you remove the headlight shroud. Also, I hope your hand is "small" enough to fit into the tight space. Good luck! It took me about 5 minutes to replace the bulb. (MORE)
Answer . \nYou will have to access the fog light bulb from below the vehicle. Remove the plastic clips from the wheel well cover extension that is below the fog light. Once the clips are out and the plastic cover is pull down, you should be able to see the back of the fog light. You can try to r…eplace the fog light bulb now or remove the two 10mm bolts and slide the fog light assemble out through the front of the bumper. Turn the cover of the rear of the fog light and replace light. (MORE)
I have a 2002 Subaru Forester. After reading all the comments, I thought I would go to an auto shop and do it. Given when I called the auto shop, it was $30 to install the bulbs. So I went into the owners manual and see what they are saying and compare all the advices. Below are the steps and it too…k me 20 min to do it all and I am computer programmer. Tools used were a pliers, 13/32 bit (ratchet), and a flat head screw driver (btw, there are no screws). NOTE: On the left, an air tube was running. I had to use the bit to remove that. At the end I put that back. . Remove the power connector from the back. It took little bit of blunt force using my programming hands. . Shake the rubber surrounding the bulb. Once you feel rubber is lose, pray the top area and unlock the retainer lock. These are like two metal clips that you push. . Once that unlocks, the rubber and bulb are in your hands. Remove the bulb. Make sure to remember the way bulb goes into the rubber container. . Replace the bulb in the rubber container. You may want to be care full here. I kind of felt, if I would have forced, the rubber would rupture. Also make sure you know which side of the rubber and bub are top. Otherwise you may have to force the connector later. . Once that is done, put the rubber and into the canape. Make sure the three legs in the bulb goes into the appropriate slot. Once they are there, use the flat head screw driver to push the retainer into place. . Once both retainers lock, just make sure the the rest of the rubber are in place and you are done. . Go to the other side. I went to Auto zone to pickup standard bulbs and he didn't give much advise. Just start opening is what he said. Again, thanks to every ones info I was able to understand and replace the lights. The bulbs were $20. Shrini Viswnathan --------- Confirmed. On 2000 Subaru Forester. You only need to remove the battery in order to pull out the headlight lamp. Meanwhile, in case you don't have the user manual. You can access it on my.subaru.com after registering. -------------------------------------------- Actually it doesn't have to be this complicated. It took me quite a few tries but I was able to get to the bulb simply by pulling the rubber covering away from the bulb assembly. Once you do this you can loosen the spring clamp by squeezing it. This takes a little dexerity but once you do it, it is surprising how simple it is. I was not able to pull the bulb out of the electrical connector until I uncovered it from the rubber cover. The arrows on the rubber say squeeze, presumably so you can get a good enough grip to pull the connector from the bulb but I was not able to do this, and rolling back the rubber is much easier in any case. I found the owners manual of no value for this task. -------------------------------------------- Someone wrote in an earlier writeup that you can access the headlamp bulb rubber cover without removing anything else. You can't. You will need clearance to pull out a long bulb assembly. I think it might be possible to remove the battery and have clearance, but I didn't try that. The USER MANUAL couldn't be more worthless - it gives advice like "remove the bulb" without giving the slightest clue how to do it. This is not a trivial job. I would recommend you get all four bulbs for whatever side you are replacing - do them all. The dealer-dude didn't have the orange turn-signal bulb in stock, and said they don't see too many replaced. I guess that's probably right since it was about ten years ago when I last saw someone actually use their turn signal. So step one - go get 3 (or 4 if you replace turn signal) bulbs. The front marker and side marker are the same bulb type. Step two - remove the middle grill. The top connectors are visible and you can use a flat-bladed screw driver to compress the side or top and jiggle them so they pop loose. One you get the top part of the grill loose - DO NOT just pull outward - you will break the non-visible two lower connectors and get to go to the dealer again to get new ones. Instead, to remove the grill once the top part is loose, PULL UP. These light gray lower connectors are inbedded in the Head Lamp assembly. The exterior trim piece is next. The two top black poppers need to be jimmied up 1/4 inch and then they pull out. The trim piece has 3 additional attachment points that are hidden. About the middle and a few inches to the outbound side, there are 2. They have an outbound facing notch, and the trim piece needs to be tapped towards the outward direction (side of the car) until it is free of them. This piece can flex a bit - its OK - but don't overdo. The final attachment is at the outermost corner that is a 1/4" male that plugs into a female fitting - This can be carefully pulled out and the trim piece is off. The next part is the Head Lamp Assembly. There are 3 screws which the owners Manual actually correctly identifies. These come out. And the assembly is basically loose, but attached by 4 cables going into the Assembly. The Marker lights and turn signal are easy - just untwist them. When you reconnect them - they have VERY different slot keys, so you won't have trouble remembering which is which. The tough one is the headlamp. The connector to the bulb has a rubberized cover. You can't see it while it is in place,but it has the word "PUSH" and two arrows on it pointing at the sides. You need to press in on the sides, a little higher than the middle, and disconnect the bulb connector. I had to gently use channel locks to do this. When the connector is removed, you can remove the rubber dam material surrounding the light. It may stick, but this entire thing will come off, making removal of the bulb a much simpler task. Once this is removed, you will see a wire latch holding the lamp in. Squeeze the wire latch (like pinching a clothes pin - kind of) at the top and it should release the bulb, which can now be simply removed from the enclosure. Replacement is the reverse and will be much easier now that you see all the parts that were previously hidden. This applies to the 2003 Forester as well - probably good on the 2002 also. I agree with the second comment, I just changed the bulb in my 2003 forester. I did not remove anything except the light bulb and the rubber casing. Just disconnect the bulb, pull back the rubber to expose the wire latches that is holding the bulb in place. Once it was out, it took some time to get the rubber casing off the old light bulb. A few improvements to the above: While replacing the driver's side headlamp on the family '01 Forester I was sidetracked by the label "PUSH" on the back of the electrical connector. This is a useless label, as I simply had to use brute force and a screwdriver blade to separate the old bulb from the connector- there's no hidden clamps or secret procedures to getting the connector off the bulb. I was able to do this WITHOUT REMOVING THE GRILL OR THE BATTERY! You do not have to remove anything except the rubber boot that holds the lamp assembly in the center of the plastic gismach that is the back of the headlamp. There is a spring clip that needs to be unclipped before you approach the electrical connector with the useless "PUSH" label. Hope this saves somebody a lot of time. (MORE)
Answer . If you look under the bumper in the area of the fog lamp, you will. see a plastic cover preventing access. There is about a 2 " hole in this cover.. If you look into the hole you will see a screw head. This is the fog lamp assembly screw. You must remove it to remove the assembly to ge…t at the bulb.. However, you really need to remove a few screws and clips to get under this access cover. This is the only way you can remove the bulb wires from the back of the assembly as the assembly slides forward out of the bumber.. After you get under this plastic cover, remove the side bulb by twisting slightly counter clockwise.. Remove the Fog lamp wire by twisting that connector as well.. There will be two wires still connected to the back of the fog lamp.. remove these carefully.. There is a push clip on the side of fog lamp assembly toward the engine.. Push this with your finger or the head of a screwdriver. Push on the back of the assembly and it should slide out.. Once out, you should be able to figure out how to remove and replace the bulb and then re-install.. There is also a PDF repair manual on www.pdftown.com that you can download for free.

The main headlight is a sealed component. BUT the LAMP is replaceable in the fog lamps. Just do a simple part check on kragen or something like that.. Answer . You can't. The lights are a sealed component. They're also a bit pricey. Sorry. . If the fog lamps on the 2002 are the same as on my… 2000 Sport, then you certainly can. And it should only take about 10 minutes or so. You'll have to take the front of the fog lamp off and then slide out the bulb, reflector and the wiring. From there, replacement is pretty straight forward and then you just put the assembly back in and screw it back down. (MORE)
1: remove the negative battery cable. 2: Unscrew the mud guardunder the fog light and bumper and push it back. 3: push the entireassembly out, by pushing in the metal 'pins' on the side of thehousing one at a time. 4: When the assembly is pulled out, thereare two screws that you'll need to unscrew a…t the back of theassembly. Often these screws are rusty, and can easily be stripped.You may need to treat with wd40 and leave for a while. You may alsowant to consider buying new screws to replace. 5: Pull out the bulband replace. Try not to handle the bulb by the glass, but rather bythe metal. 6. Replace assembly and all screws. This isn't a quickand easy replacement like other bulbs, and may take a surprisinglylong time. Allow a few hours if its your first time attempting. (MORE)
This is the answer for a 2001 and it works on my 2002 also. First, determine which style bulb you need, some catalogs say 899 series, but mine was an 898. there are 3 bolts for the front of the splash shield, you will need a ratchet and 10mm socket. Remove just those 3 bolts and bend that shield do…wn to put your hand in to remove the old bulb, but removal at this point is not necessary. If you look at it, the 898 bulb comes out at a 90 degree angle before entering the harness, where the 899 is straight into the harness. Once you have determined which bulb it takes then go out and get one. This will save you the hassle of returning it if it is wrong. ( you can drive the car to the store without those three bolts, just make sure the shield is in place) The space to squeeze your arm into is tight, the plastic holds its shape well, and pinches you but it can be done. the build turns slightly to pull out and once it is out, taking it off the harness is simple, it should slide out fairly easily, but if it does not, simply pry up the little tabs gently with a small flat screw driver, this plastic can get brittle. put the new bulb directly into the lamp before plugging the harness into it, being careful not to touch the glass of the bulb, the oil on your skin can cause it to blow out again. replace the bolts and you are finished. My 2001 XLT just has three push-pin fasteners in the splash shield. They are difficult to push back in after removal, unless you remove the center screw-like pieces in the middle of the fastener, place the outer part back in place and then reinsert the screw-like center piece. I had no need for any wrenches, just a small pry tool to remove the snap-in fasteners. The other reference to some catalogs getting the number wrong is right on. Mt local parts store gave me the 899 part, and when I removed the old one it was an 898. The 899 will not work. (MORE)
There are three small bolts located around the fog light, assuming you do not have any extra covers, remove the unit by those phillips/hex bolts. There is a small screw for adjusting the light Do not mess with that unless you need to re-aim the light. On the back side of the cover is a twist center …(more then likely a grey color) twist this and then inside the opening is a small metal "spring" push down and away from the metal cut out that holds it in place. Then pull out the bulb. Be sure to not get your oils on the new bulb as it could lesson the life of the bulb and or shatter it when it heats up.. When you change the bulb and go to put it back into the unit, look at the metal base of where you plug the bulb in, there are two small cut outs which have to line back up correctly! (MORE)
Answer . To replace the fog light of the passenger side you need to remove the fog light bolt and pull out the fog light assembly, then you can remove the bulb and put a new one in. To replace the fog light on the driver side you will need to remove the front bumper cover so you can remove th…e vacuum box that is in the the way of the fog light bolt. To do so you need to remove the Torx (star) screws located in the front wheel wells as well as the bolts holding the plastic by the radiator. "CAUTION: DO NOT UNBOLT THE RADIATOR." If any of the screws are rusted into place put some penetrating oil them to help loosen them up. (MORE)

Its a pain in the butt.... there is a plastic shielding on the underside behind the foglite which is water shielding for the front tire. There are removeable plastic rivets holding the shielding in place. Getting at all of them is nearly impossible for the average do-it-yourselfer. Getting at enough… of them so you can reach around and remove the waterproof cover and unplug the bulb is a pain but achievable. If you have yet to replace any of the bulbs yet, I would suggest that you try to remove one of the headlights (low beam... its the same bulb a the foglight). I only suggest this because if you take my advice and only remove some of the plastic rivets you may wind up (like me) having to reach around and remove the cover and bulb, blind, so being familiar with how the cover comes off and where the bulb prongs are is a plus.

It's not easy. You can replace the bulb two ways. The easy way is to raise the car and disassemble the lower fascia cowl and get to the back of the fog light housing from that angle. That's about 22 bolts. The preferred but dangerous way is to remove the plastic push pins from the two sides of the f…og light from the front of the car and the aim adjuster screw and spring from the top of the fog light then pull out the complete fog light and replace the bulb from the back. Putting it back together is the dangerous part. Using needle nose pliers to insert the push pins into the foglight side with very little wiggle room may result in dropping them into the above mentioned fascia. Tip: tie a thread around the pins in case you drop them you can pull them out! It happened to me. Glad I did! Time to complete task: 2 hours. Like I said, not easy. zozman (MORE)

I have a 2005 New Beetle, I assume the round fog lights under the front bumper are the same. Replacing the bulb is very simple... First, don't disconnect any wires from the back of the fog light housing. The back of the housing, it's black in color, turns counterclockwise to remove. The entire housi…ng will turn about a quarter turn and you can pull it off. It still has the wires attached so let it hang down. This exposes the bulb's base which is held on by a tension clip. Push the top of the clip inwards and then move slightly to the side to release the tension. The clip will hang down, the bulb can now be removed by pulling it out by the base. . To install the new bulb, reverse these directions. Remember, don't handle the new bulb by the glass as the oils on your hand can cause the bulb to break when turned on. As a precautionary measure, it is wise to wipe down the new bulb with alcohol prior to installation to remove any oil that may have gotten on it. Put the new bulb in the seat where the old one came out...there are two dimples in the seat that line up with the tits on the base of the bulb. Once seated, hold the bulb in place with the tension clip, sliding the top of the clip over to catch the groove it came out of. The clip will now hold the bulb in place. Fit the black plastic housing back into the rear of the lamp, wires still attached, and turn clockwise about a quarter turn till you feel it click. Pat yourself on the back...you're done. bb (MORE)

There is a single Phillips head screw at the top of the fog light. Unscrew it and the fog light assembly will pull out. Rotate the harness counter-clockwise and the socket will come out of the light, exposing the bulb. Assembly is the reverse. Thanks!

You have to start by taking off the grill. Then you need to pull out the whole light houseing. When you have the whole light off its easy from there. Just remember not to touch the light bulb with your fingers.
The best way that I figured out is to take the wheel off and take off the screws off that attach the fender well to front bumper (there is about 5 of them) and go through the fender well so then you will be behind the foglight. I think it beats taking all those screws or snaps along the bottom

The bulb is accessed from under the car. Do not attempt to remove anything on the face of the bulb. Here is what I did today: 1. There is an undercarriage cover that is held in place by plastic retainers. To remove the retainer and still be able to reuse it, you'll need to pry up the center of the …retainer with a small flathead screwdriver. Once it's partially up, use needle nose pliers or the same screwdriver to pry the center up further. Once it is up far enough, the entire plug should come out. Save this for later. 2. Once the one retainer is removed, you should be able to push the cover up until you can see the bulb. 3. Twist the entire bulb assembly counter clockwise. You don't need to remove the screws. The bulb assembly should easily pull away from the socket. 4. Using that same small flathead screwdriver, push on the tab that holds the bad bulb into the rubber/plastic connection. With the tab pushed in, the bulb should be easily removed from the connection. 5. Plug the new bulb back in to the connection. At this point, you might want to turn on your fog lamps to verify that they light up before putting them back into the sockets. 6. Place the connected lamp back into the same socket it was in before and at the same angle. Twist clockwise to lock into place 7. Pull the undercarriage cover back into place. Make sure the hole that the connector came out of is aligned with the hole to lock it back into place. 8. With the center pin on the connector pulled up as far as possible, the rest of the connector should go into the cover and into the attaching hole without much trouble. If it does not, you may need to pull the center pin out a bit more. 9. Once the connector is in place and the center pin is up, use a hammer to push the center pin back down. This will lock the connector pin and will hold the cover in place. Please note that I'm not a mechanic, so the names I used for the parts are just descriptions as best as I can describe. Good luck!

Drive it into your favorite oil change station and tell them your light is out. Within 15-minutes they'll do the work for you. Last time I needed a bulb changed it cost me about $10 for parts and labor.
