Step 1: On the lower grille area (just beneath the bumper cover), pull the release tab to remove the trim panel that covers the fog light area.
Step 2: Loosen and remove the 3 Phillips retaining screws that hold the fog light assembly in place.
Step 3: Pull the fog light from the vehicle and disconnect the wiring harness on the back of the fog light assembly.
Step 4: You can now remove the fog light completely.
NOTE: If you ordered your replacement fog light from Go-Parts, it likely includes a new bulb, as most of our models do. This saves you an installation step! However, in case your particular model does not include a new bulb, simply remove the bulb/socket from the old assembly and attach it to the new one!
Step 5: Connect the wiring harness to the back of the new fog light assembly.
Step 6: Secure the fog light assembly by tightening the 3 Phillips retaining screws.
Step 7: Reattach the small trim panel below the bumper cover.
