Here are the items you'll need for this repair: 8mm socket, ratchet, socket extension

On the backside of the fog light, inside of the lower bumper valance, disconnect the electrical connector for the light. Remove the three 8mm screws around the housing. For this, we'll use an 8mm socket and ratchet. Be sure to keep one hand on the back of the fog light when removing the last bolt, then remove the fog light from the valance.

Here we have our old fog light that we removed from our vehicle, and our new part from As you can see, these parts are identical, with the same bracket, we have the same light. This one's nice and fresh, while this one has a lot of debris and moisture damage on the inside of the lens.

The same mounting location is on the backside. This new one actually comes with a nice breather tube here to allow moisture out of the housing and prevent it from building up. We have an adjustment screw on the bottom so you can align them if necessary. It even comes with a nice, new bulb in there too, so if your fog lights have moisture build up or become cracked, broken, or just aren't producing the light output they should, this new part from 1A Auto is going to go in direct fit just like your original equipment.

Install your new fog light assembly into the valance. Start your three 8mm screws by hand. Once you've got the screws started, tighten them down with an 8mm socket and ratchet. Reinstall the electrical connector, and repeat these steps on the opposite side.
