This automotive how to guide was specifically written to assist owners of the sixth generation (1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, & 2003) GM Pontiac Grand Prix in replacing a burnt out fog light bulb.

The procedure may be similar on other General Motors vehicles such as the Grand Am, Bonneville, Chevy Monte Carlo, Impala, Lumina, Buick Regal, Oldsmobile Cutlass, and Intrigue.

A replacement fog light bulb is part # 880 from a variety of manufacturers including Sylvania and GE.

To most easily access the fog light bulbs, I'd recommend raising the car with a floor jack and securing it with a jack stand.

I needed a 10mm socket and wrench to remove the fog light bulb, but you may able to remove it by hand with no tools.

Removing 10mm Bolts
As I mentioned, it may be possible for you to remove the fog light bulb without any tools. Just grasp the black plastic power connector at the end of the wire loom and twist it 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Mine wasn't turning and I was afraid to break the decade old plastic connector.

Pull Fog Light Forward
So instead, I removed the two 10mm bolts on the rear of the fog light housing and pushed on the bare bolts to move it forward. Then I pulled the fog light housing all the way out from the front of the car.

Black Plastic Connector
Once the fog light housing is removed, you can easily grasp the white/tan base of the bulb, turn it 1/4 turn counter clockwise, and pull it straight out. Then pop off the black plastic power connector by using a flathead screwdriver. Insert the new # 880 fog light bulb and reverse the steps above. If your bulb burst like mine, be sure to empty out any broken glass pieces from the fog light housing.
