This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fifth generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) GM Chevrolet Camaro in changing a burnt out fog light bulb in the front fascia bumper cover.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Spark, Cruze, Malibu, Sonic, Impala, Traverse, Tahoe, Trax, SS, GMC Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore, Enclave and the Holden Barina may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement fog light bulb for the 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013 Camaro models is part number 5202 or Philips 12086.

The 2014 and 2015 Camaro model years instead have # H11 fog light bulbs.

The only tool needed to replace the bulbs is a Torx T20 star bit screwdriver.

Pull Back Wheel Well Liner
The first step is to turn the steering wheel all the way to the opposite direction of the burnt out fog light bulb.

Turning the front wheels will create more room for you to work in the wheel well.

Remove the three screws on the front of the wheel well liner or "splash guard" by turning them counterclockwise with the Torx T20 star bit screwdriver.

Gently pull back the wheel well liner to access the fog light bulb housing.
