    Default Vectra C facelift front fog lamp replacing

    After looking for help on this matter I found a lot of people suggesting to take off the bumper to replace the fog lamps on the this model, this is simply not the case.

    firstly you need the relevant bulb, I bought mine from Halfords for £5.49, standard fit bulb is an H3 55w 12v

    I replaced the passenger side lamp as this is a know cause for condensation cause by the washer bottle directly above.

    Firstly turn your wheel to the right full lock to allow you access under the wheel arch of the passenger side.

    when you look under and up you'll see a plastic housing with a turnable mount on the bottom of it.

    Turn this and it comes off to reveal the lamp housing. You'll see a wire clip holding the lamp in place. Unclip this and the lamp will come out.

    Simply detach the lamp wire at the end attached to the white connector and reattach the new lamp into the connector. Put the lamp back in place and secure again with the wire clip then put the plastic housing back on by turning it secure.

    10 minute job and no bumper removal required.

    I've attached two photos, one of the housing itself and one of the housing with the bottom mount taken off revealing the lamp housing.

    Hope this helps anyone who needs it.

    replacing a bulb is easy though.. replacing the foglight itself can be just as easy.. not sure who told you to take the bumper off though because i wouldn't have...

    No need to remove the bumper when changing the fog lamp bulb, bumper comes off if you want to change the fog lamp assembly some people manage to do it with the bumper in place but it's far easier to take it off, only takes 10 mins
