Front Fog Lamp Replacement

Post by muppet » Sun 20 Jun, 2010 08:34

Noticed this last week,

Image

Honest it is dirty because I did not want to wash near the broken lamp..

so I bought a new here... and yes i did but the one at £27.08(Note this is the one for my ,99 facelift, enter your own reg mark when searching for parts for your car)

It arrived shiny ,new and unbroken

First remove plastic cover at the side , I used a screw driver to prise it off

Image

Then an 8mm socket to remove the two screws/bolts

Image

Remove the connector at the Back, bit with yellow wire going in to it. Two bits on the side have to be pushed in to release it.

Image

There is no new bulb in the replacement lamp so open the old one by releasing the metal clip

Image

Remove the blue connectors, mine were quite stiff and I used pliers to do this

Image

Open metal clips to release the bulb, and put in the new Lamp

Image

The new lamp had one connector rather than two separate ones, showing this in case yours are like this

Image

When inserting the new lamp put the small plastic lug on the side

Image

In to the hole

Image

Once the two 8mm bolts are replace put back the the plastic trim getting the clippy bits

Image

into the holes in the body work

Image

Done

Image


Even for me this was a genuinely easy job that took only took 15 minutes including stopping to take pics .

I hope you put some protective plastic film over that fog light to prevent THAT one getting broken?
