The first step is to turn the steering wheel all the way in the opposite direction of the burnt out fog light bulb.

Turning the front wheels will help create more working room in the wheel well to access the old light bulb.

Locate the rectangular shaped access cover on the front part of the black plastic wheel well liner.

Remove the two black plastic screws by turning them counterclockwise with a Phillips head screwdriver.

If you'd like to have brighter fog lights, there are H11 LED bulbs available.

(The LED bulbs should also have a much longer life span than the traditional halogen bulbs.)
