Fog light bezel removal

I searched the DYI section but did not see anything for the 2014-2015 models. I'm looking to put some yellow lamin-x film on the fogs. Seems the easiest was is to remove the bezels. Does anyone know if they just press into place? It looks that way for the 2013 models.

Thanks

Disassemble from the back. Two screws and the assembly comes out.

Re: Fog light bezel removal

So the whole assembly needs to be removed to take the bezel out?

Damn, I was hoping it was just a matter of prying it off from the outside...

Re: Fog light bezel removal

I think a few members here have related that you have to break off a few of those black fasteners to get your hands in there to remove the fog bulbs. Have the replacements on hand when you finish installing your new bulbs.

Re: Fog light bezel removal

The plastic rivets(Tuf-Loks) inside the fender well are also removable. They are designed to be reused

The whole assembly does not get removed. Removing the two screws allows you to remove the bezel but the light assembly stays in place.

Thanks. Jeez sounds like a lot of work just to pop those bezels off. I guess that's the price you have to pay to be LOL
Do you have any tips on the best way to remove the plastic rivets?

After looking around more at the actual bezels that were for sale, I did notice 2 openings on the back that looked like screws went it. Was hoping they were just there for guide pins or something.

Thanks again

Re: Fog light bezel removal

It's maybe 10 minutes to do the first one. After you've got it figured out - the opposite side is simple.

Re: Fog light bezel removal

I spoke with the parts dept. guy at a local dealership. He says those rivets are over $8.00 each, LOL

He did say that I would need a special plastic rivet gun to reinstall them and suggested, doing what he did, and pick up a plastic rivet gun at Harbor Freight. The one he got came with a few plastic rivets as well.
There is a Harbor Freight near my work. I'll head over there tomorrow...

Re: Fog light bezel removal

The lower facia rivets are fixed. If you need to remove them to remove the whole front facia, we all are replacing them with Scrivets:

WK2 Lower Front Fascia (Removal & Installation)

The fog light can be accessed from the wheel well without removing the facia.

Thanks, Mozzie. I don't need to remove the front facia, just need to have access to the fog lights from the wheel well to remove 2 screws that hold the outer fog light bezel in. I'm wanting to apply a yellow Lamin-X film over the fog lights and would like the bezels off for easier application. Then put the bezels back on.

We have those types of fasteners here as well
