How to replace fog light bulbs???

I just got some Eurodesign Xenon-like H-11 bulbs for my 2002 foglights, but the owner's manual doesn't show or explain how to change these out.

If anyone has a pictoral, or detailed description of how to do this, that would be great!

i know how to replace the bulbs in a coupe, but since you have a sedan, the instructions are not the same.

let me see if i can find instructions for a sedan.

i think the easiest way would be to unfasten the wheel well. then you can reach under where the fog lights are. just twist and the bulb should come out.

i will try to find an easier way or diagram for you.

What if I remove that plastic guard that protects the undercarriage?

1) How do I get those plastic clips out from the guard that connects it to the bumper cover?

2) How do I remove the wheel well?

I am not scared of doing any work on the car. I just like to know before I go.

Thanks

I figured it out. Very simple:

1) Remove the bumper grill pieces that are at the far edges of the lower duct. They just pop right out.

2) reach up into that opening and remove the bulb.

3) replace.

Thanks!
