    Default Replacing foglight bulb

    Is it possible to replace the foglight bulbs on a pre-facelift without having to remove the front bumper. If it is how do you do it?

    Where are you looking then? There is as gxrster says underneath the front bumper ( on the flat side) there is a large black "bung" it is about 60m/m dia. turn it and it should come off, you will be able to see the wires for the bulb then.

    Had my brake pads replaced today so i asked my mechanic to have a look at replacing the bulbs and he had to remove the leading edge of the underfloor tray just to get any access to it
