Remove 10mm Screws

This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 10th generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, & 2013) Toyota Corolla in replacing a burnt out fog light bulb in the front bumper.

Owners of other Toyota, Lexus or Scion vehicles such as the Yaris, Matrix, Prius, Camry, RAV4, Sienna, Tacoma, Tundra, FJ Cruiser, Venza, Highlander, Avalon, Sequoia, Land Cruiser, IS 250, ES 350, GS 350, tC, xB, xD, iQ and FR-S may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement fog light bulb is part # H11 available from manufacturers such as Sylvania, Osram, PIAA, Philips, Putco, GE and Optilux.

The tools needed to access the bulb include a 10mm socket with ratcheting wrench or a Phillips head screwdriver, and a flathead screwdriver.

Look underneath the front bumper just below the fog light housing and locate the fasteners that hold the splash guard in place.

Loosen the screw with a 10mm socket and ratcheting wrench or a Phillips head screwdriver.

My car was missing the other fastener, but you should need to remove a black plastic pop rivet or two.

Pull back the black plastic underbody panel and locate the black plastic base of the fog light bulb on the rear of the conical shaped housing.

Press the release button on the power connector and slide it straight off the base of the bulb.

Rotate the base of the bulb 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pull it straight out of the housing.

1/4 Turn Clockwise
Insert a new # H11 fog light bulb in to the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

Try to avoid touching the glass part of the new halogen bulb with your fingers or anything greasy in the engine bay. If you do get the bulb dirty, wipe it clean with an alcohol moistened paper towel.
