Default Help?

OK, I got my front map light working, now all I need is how to get at the center high mount without getting that gooey stuff all over me so I can actually get the bulb out. And the fogs. I am still having trouble figuring out the fogs. When I look up at it from under the car, I see a thing I can turn, and a thing that looks like it has a bulb on the other side. Help! Any help would be appreciated.

Get gooey, or wear gloves. It'* the only way.

What'* wrong with your driving lights?

Your fogs should just twist out. There should be two things to twist, one will adjust your fog lights and the other is the bulb connector. Just turn counter-clockwise and the bulb should be loose.

My pass side fog is out. Sounds good to me. *Goes outside and tries it.*

Oh well, it'* dark, and I'll try again in the morning.

Find the wires going in to the back of the socket (I think either the connector or the socket itself is a right-angle deal). Unplug the wires from the socket, then untwist the bulb and pull out.

The large round wing-nut-like thingy is for adjusting the aim; you don't need to disturb that when changing the bulb.

P.*. Dunno what you have to pick from in your area, but around here, Wal-Mart beat the next-lowest price (Auto Zone) by almost two bucks for the replacement bulb: Wal-Mart was asking something like $6.47 for it; Auto Zone wanted over eight bucks...

Or I could go to the local junkyard and pick some up.

Thanks for your help.

Bonnevilles look meaner at night with the fogs on. Could I get some "Hyperwhite" bulbs for my fogs?

EDIT- How do I get to the headlight bulbs, cause I'd like to make those hyperwhite too.

EDIT EDIT- When I try to order the Blue Xenon 880'* (Fog Bulbs) There are none in stock... When will they be back in stock?

For the headlights, undo the two large thumbscrews, then lift the whole headlamp out. It won't disturb the aiming.

On the 880, I belive an 885 or 893 will work as well.

According to the incredibly helpful replacement bulb lookup website at http://www.sylvania.com/auto/carapp/ it'* an 885.
