I have tried almost everything but i can't seem to figure out how to get at the actual bulb for my fog lights. I have a 2003 Bonneville SE.Anyone with knowledge let me know please.

Thanks

Default Fog light replacement

It'* pretty easy. Just reach up from under the front of the car. You will feel the wire going into the back of the light. Give the bulb holder about a quarter turn. You will feel the bulb holder loosen and you will be able to pull it straight out. Make sure when you put the new one in you don't touch it against anything, especially your skin. The oil from your skin can cause the new bulb to shatter or fail when it gets hot. Know that from experience!!! I also recommend replacing them both at the same time. One dies and the other is not soon after and you will probably notice a difference in brightness or color.

You might want to take a garden hose and rinse around the back of the lights first to loosen any dirt.

Good advice on changing them both
