Removing fog light assemblies

Anyone know how to remove the fog light assemblies? The dealer is no help, wants to charge me to replace a burnt bulb.

Ok...got it figured out. It's a pain in the a$$, but you remove the screws on the wheel well trim and pull the wheel well guard aside to get to them. There will be very little room to get your arms in and twist them out, but it works.

Nothing a socket wrench with a long extension & flashlight can't solve

I hope that is what you used?

I've had to go through this same procedure with other cars and doing what I mentioned in the first line is far better than having to shove your hand in small spots.

I know, but who has time to go to the dealer...get a loaner car while they take 2 days to replace the bulbs.

I decided that since I got to them, I would put a HID kit in place of the stock bulbs. I also put HID's in place of my headlights too. Talk about lighting up the road!! Just have to be sure their aimed correctly, don't want to be blinding other drivers!

I did use relay harnesses to take any extra load off my stock harness and I do get an error about low beam fault, but it all works perfectly.

You can install the decoder to remove the fault for Low beams.

Thanks

Tell me more?? decoder?

Are you referring to an anti flicker/error code canceller? I worry about these as they don't seem specific to any vehicle except BMW that I can find.

Yes, referring to the error code cancellors. I have used them on my 300 and they have worked great. They don't have to be specific for a car, generic ones work good.

Thanks

In general going through what is called the fender liner is the easiest way to access the fog light bulbs. Glad you find it

I did, but it was not easy! Having to have the wheel cranked to it's fullest extent each way to get to it and all. But, I do have to say that the end result with the HID's was worth it. I put 3000k in the fog lights and 6000k in the headlights. Quite a dramatic effect and the light output is awesome!!
