Replacing an OEM Fog Light... PLEASE HELP!!!
Hello all! I am new to the forum after being a long time reader. I have a 2011 Laredo X with a few upgrades. So far I have figured out a lot on my Jeep by myself but I cannot figure out how to swap out my burnt fog light! It seems impossible. Again all I need to do is remove the old one and put in the new OEM replacement part. Please help with instructions! Thanks so much!

From the owners manual:
"Front Fog Lamps
1. Reach through the cutout in the splash shield and
disconnect the wiring harness from the fog lamp
2. Firmly grasp the bulb by the two latches and squeeze
them together to unlock the bulb from the back of the
front fog lamp housing.
3. Pull the bulb straight out from the keyed opening in
the housing.
• Do not touch the new bulb with your fingers. Oil
contamination will severely shorten bulb life. If
the bulb comes in contact with any oily surface,
clean the bulb with rubbing alcohol.
• Always use the correct bulb size and type for
replacement. An incorrect bulb size or type may
overheat and cause damage to the lamp, the socket
or the lamp wiring.
4. Align the index tabs of the front fog lamp bulb with
the slots in the collar of the bulb opening on the back
of the front fog lamp housing.
5. Insert the bulb into the housing until the index tabs are
engaged in the slots of the collar.
6. Firmly and evenly push the bulb straight into the lamp
housing until both tabs snap firmly into place and are
fully engaged.
7. Connect the wiring harness to the front fog lamp

There are better instructions before...
