Swapping fog light bulbs
 
Sorry for the stupid question -- I bought new Silverstar 9145ST bulbs for my fog lights. Easy to install? Do I need to remove the fogs or can I simply unplug the original bulbs and plug in the new ones.

I figured I'd ask for some 'expert' advice/insight before going out in the 18* weather to take a look.

Thanks in advance.

you just twist the socket from underneath Peter. then once the bulb is out the housing. pull it out and swap with new bulb. keep new bulb free of fingerprints or clean before reinstall.

You've got to get down under dude.. It is a big PITA, I know, but that is the only way to do it..

I know Matt removed his bumper to do it but that was for his HID kit

i dont find it a pain at all. very easy just lay under the front bumper and go to town. ps im running 9005 bulbs for better light output.

I was thinking about going with 9005 bulbs but the guy at the store talked me out of them. If it wasn't 18* out right now, I'd go and do it now :D And tomorrow doesn't look any better so I'll dress warm!

Next thing I want to look into is hooking up my rear fogs to work with my brakes. I hear it's a simple thing to connect them into the trailer rig....IDK.

^Get the Lips harness for the fogs. PM him, he's a vendor here. ;)
