    Be careful in cold weather like this. It's probably worth warming the grill plastic with a hair drier first.

    A few people have snapped the tags off. The other way is that apparently you can get to them via the wheel arch if you move the liner out of the way....although I just grabbed and yanked the grill (in warm weather).

    I found it easier to go in through the wheel arch,turn your wheel so you have access and then remove x2 torkscrews from the inner arch lining and then bend it back enough to fit your arm in,the power connecter has a small indent to push to release it from the lamp holder,once this is removed twist the holder and it will come out in your hand with the lamp attached,the new unit should come with the small holder and lamp attached and then just reverse the process.

    I changed mine for white fogs a few moths back to match the xenons and DRL's.

    White fogs are great for 'the look' but yellow beams cut the fog much much better.

    Didn't need to replace the fog light bulb, when I removed the wheel arch protector I found out that the bulb & the holder had not been replaced properly from having the cam belt done last month. The bulb was still working & very worryingly for the last month I've been smelling burning plastic as I use the Go home lights this time of year. So I've found the source of the smell ( the hot bulb resting on the plastic) & fixed the bulb for free. Wish most repairs where this simple.
