Brought to you by, your source for quality replacement parts and the best service on the internet. Hi, I'm Mike Green. I'm one of the owners of 1A Auto. I want to help you save time and money repairing or maintaining your vehicle. I'm going to use my 20 plus years experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to install parts from The right parts, installed correctly. That's going to save you time and money. Thank you and enjoy the video.

In this video we're going to show you how to service a fog light and as well as we're going to show you how to replace one if you have a broken lens or a broken assembly. If you're just replacing a bulb you don't need any tools, but if you're replacing the entire fog light assembly you will need a T10 Torx driver as well as a 10 mm socket and ratchet and an extension as well. If you're just looking to replace the bulb you can access the back of the fog light right here. You can see this truck actually has an after-market light mounted onto it. I just kind of took that out of place so I could do this video and I put a good OE style light in here. Obviously to replace the bulb you would have a harness connection right on here. You just kind of pull the tab down and off and then the bulb just twists and comes out and then goes back in and twists. If you want to change the whole fog-light assembly if it has been broken or something like that the easiest way is to remove your whole headlight assembly which is not that difficult.

You start with a T10 Torx driver and there's a small screw right under here. Remove that screw and then pull out on your assembly and then there's a couple of rubber pins right here. Just pull those off. Pull out on your assembly and then in behind over here there's a connector that you twist and it pulls out and then pull it out some more and you've got two more bulbs here that twist and pull out and twist and pull out. Now you have three 10 mm bolts. One right down here. Fast forward a little bit here. So you remove that one then there's one under the inboard side of the headlight and then one kind of back between the radiator and the headlight. There's actually a clip right there that you need to pry out. There's a little clip and there's a little ball and socket. I just push the clip back into the hole and then disconnect your headlight. Now, with the headlight out you can actually see down in her and right there those two bolts and then those two 10 mm bolts right there are the bolts for the fog light. You would undo those.

Take the headlight out. It's pretty easy with your 10 mm ratchet and socket. Okay and let me fast forward here a little bit through removing those two 10 mm bolts. ... bolt back and twist and your fog light will come out. Obviously you put it back up in and twist and look right down. Okay, again here I'm going to fast forward for you. I'm putting those two bolts in by hand and then tightening them up with the socket and ratchet, and you want to have them nice and tight and firm and then we'll get back to putting the headlight in and get you back on that road..Now we can put our headlight back in, connect it first. Pull these out and make sure that you have this bulb out like that. Push it up in, get that ball and socket in the right spot. Okay, I'm just going to hit the fast forward button again. Make sure you put those three 10 mm bolts in. One note here is lift up on your headlight while you're tightening up those bolts so it makes the line nice and tight up at the top. Then put in your three bulbs and sockets and reinstall the parking light assembly and you're all set.
