To remove your existing fog lights you'll have to crawl under the front bumper area. Look at the backside of the fog light assemblies. Remove the thread protectors, then remove the 10 mm nuts and bring the whole assembly out through front of the bumper. There you will be able to remove the 880 capusles by turning the socket approximately 30 degrees to unlock the breech, then pull staight out.

HID fogs? Where are you putting your ballast, and do you think the factory plastic lenses can withstand the heat?

You can change the fog lights from under the hood. With out going under the car if
you have a SE. But be careful with aftermarket fog light bulbs. I bought some off
EBay and they melted the plastic lens. Silverstars look great but for me they seem 2
blow out to soon. Check out this:

ya i got my blubs off Ebay. it was a package deal all three for 40bucks.. **** it cost me that just for one set, but im sure those are much better.. and hotter. see i was looking here http://store.yahoo.com/brandsportinc/perlig142.html but i decided to be cheap and goto ebay for mine. they arent that bad.. just have to adjust my left headlight now.. it points to the right to much.

SilverStar headlights work great...but lots of people have had problems with the SilverStar fog lamps. They seem to burn out real quick.
