    Hi all

    I recently discovered that my front fog light lens was hit by a stone while I was driving on the highway:-((. As a result rain water was getting into the fog light.

    After a few days the fog light bulb stopped working and I had to replace it. :-((

    Attached are pictures of how i replaced the front fog light bulb.:cool:

    hi if you turn the wheel fully left or right you just have to undo bottom clips and pull wheel arch cover behind the wheel you can get your arm in to reach bulbs...

    Hi Beltrichard, Welcome to Copenworld.
    If I remember correctly, you'll need a flat blade screw driver. The round plastic head of the fixing has another circular dot in the middle. Use the flat blade screw driver to prize out the centre dot (it's a pin). Once the pin is lifted you should be able to pull the fastener out.

    Bad luck - how much did the replacement lens cost?

    To reduce the risk of this happening, I've recently had my headlights and fog lamps covered with clear vinyl, by the guys who do window tinting (AKA "smash & grab" here in SA) - also has the effect of keeping the light lenses looking like new - rather than sand-blasted.
