To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces or possibly damaging the paint on the front bumper cover, I recommend that you use either a plastic automotive panel pry bar tool or a flathead screwdriver wrapped in a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the pry bar tool in between the black plastic trim panel and the bumper cover.

Gently pry out the trim piece. You may to re-insert the tool at the other side of the cover and pry again.

Try to avoid using excessive force, the trim cover should pop out relatively easily.

Set the trim panel aside in a safe place.

The fog light bulb housing is held in place by three Phillips head screws.
