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 re…ar, twist it slightly and it will unlock and come loose. Be careful not to handle the new bulb. Oils from the fingers will mess 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!
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 shiel…d. Bulb is an industry 880 halogen and twists out of the lamp housing. The fender shield is retained with clips that have a center shaft for tension.
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.
changing fog bulb in 2001 e320 Mercedes find access panel under bumper of fog lightturn 2 screws half way around and access door opensreach inside and pull off black cover (h…eld by one clip on bottom) (if car is on the ground, be ready to get your head underneath so you can see what your doing, if you have a big oversized head, then forget it, you'll have to lift the car off the ground a little)pull off the clip with wire that is attached to the back of the bulb...its right in the center..(light brown clip)fold over metal clip that holds the bulb in place...it looks like a paperclip, there are 2 notches holding it..get them off the notch and fold it over and the bulb should almost fall right out...do everything in reverse to replace bulb....first time took me about 6 minutes and 30 seconds...Mercedes is the best, they thought of everything...,,,its easy...most difficult is getting your head under the car...
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
Answer . \nThis Question answered already
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 n…ew one in. To replace the fog light on the driver side you will need to remove the front bumper cover so you can remove the 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.
Bulbs can be replaced you have to get bulbs type 9006 (hb4)

You will need wheel chocs, jack, jack stand, philips screw driver No.2, 8 mm socket/wrench, 21mm to remove wheel. Begin by chocing your wheels (use a brick or big rock if need…ed) front and back opposite to the side you are working on. Loosen, but DO NOT remove your lug nuts on the side with the burned out bulb, jack wheel off ground by two to three inches. Place jack stand securely under vehicle near where the rear of the lower control arm attaches to the body. Remove the wheel, remove the lower portion of the inner wheel well. Three front screws UNDER front of vehicle plus two plastic clips. Leave the three screws used to attach mud flap to wheel well cover intact. 6-7 plastic clips inside the wheel well including the row just above the seam. To remove plastic clips hold outer ring firmly and carefully turn the ceter portion with the number 2 philips (stuby works well). Now remove wheel well cover twist the bulb balast remove from housing. Replace bulb, installation is reverse of removal. Be sure to check your lug nuts after 50km.

In VW New Beetle
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 ba…ck of the fog light housing. The back of the housing, it's black in color, turns counterclockwise to remove. The entire housing 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

In Chevy Corvette
I have an older Passat - 1996 - and replaced a fog light yesterday. I was a little tricky, but not hard. A) Check you owner's manual. My car came with an extensive manual, whi…ch pretty much told me what to do. B) My not apply because my car is older, but for mine I pried off the 'middle' lens and then access to the fog light was easy. Good luck!
