You can access the fog lights by removing the headlight. You have to almost do it blind but it still only takes about 15 minutes.

I just replaced the passenger side fog light bulb on a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora. There may be an easier method but I was unable to find any information in the owner's manual or on the internet that seemed pertinent. First I raised the front of the car using ramps. Then from underneath the vehicle I removed three plastic push thru fasteners (two front of the wheel and one into the frame). The push thru fasterners are removed by pulling out the center of the fastener, thus allowing the exterior of the fastner to easily slide out without damaging the fastner. With the fasteners removed the right portion of the large horizontal plastic shield could be gently bent out and down giving access to the rear of the fog light. Next I removed the push on (with a single catch) electrical connection. Next the bulb was rotated which released it from the holder. Installation was the reverse procedure although I was careful not to touch the glass portion of the replacement bulb with my bare fingers.
