NOTE: During this installation, we will be removing the headlight assembly. If you are replacing the fog light due to damage or wear, it might be a good idea to replace the headlight, as well. After all, it won't be any easier than it is right now!
Step 1: Using the flathead screwdriver, gently pry the silver "crossbar" from the front of the vehicle.
Step 2: Open the vehicle's hood.
Step 3: Loosen and remove the two 8mm bolts located on top of the headlight assembly.
Step 4: Loosen and remove the 10mm retaining bolt located near the inner/bottom of the headlight assembly.
Step 5: Lift on the retaining tab, and pull the assembly from the vehicle. Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the back of the headlight.
Step 6: Disconnect the wiring harness attached to the fog light assembly.
Step 7: Using a flathead screwdriver, gently depress the retaining clips (from the front of the vehicle), while pulling back on the assembly. You will feel it release.
Step 8: You can now remove the fog light assembly.
Step 9: Insert the fog light into the bumper cover. You will feel the clip "snap" into place.
Step 10: Connect the wiring harness to the back of the fog light assembly.
Step 11: Reconnect the head light's wiring harness, and mount the assembly by tightening the 8mm and 10mm bolts.
Step 12: Gently snap the "crossbar" back into place across the front grille.
