    Hi Guys,

    I had real issues tracking down how to replace these bulbs so thought it might be useful to make a how to thread. Its pretty easy once you know how!

    So basically there is 1 screw that you have to undo first.

    Then you carefully pop the grill away from the bumper. There are 6 clips (3 at the top, 3 at the bottom) and a couple of pins that poke into the bumper (at the opposite end to the light itself). Hopefully should be pretty clear from this picture.

    As its so cold at the moment I was finding it really hard to get a grip of the grill to pull it off so I made this little tool out of a coat hanger. Worked pretty well. Be very careful when taking the grill off, the plastic gets a bit weak overtime, I managed to put at least one crack in mine :(

    Once the grill is off there are 2 torq screws to undo which will release the fog light which will drop out.

    It then just held in place by the wire running to the light. You need to disconnect the light at this point... this was a bit of a bugger to do but with a bit of jiggling came free. Then its just a case of unscrewing the back of the unit and replacing the bulb. Then putting the whole lot back together again in the reverse order.

    Hope people find this useful..
