    Tried w/o success to remove the fogs. I tried with a screwdriver approach from the front of the fogs and was unable to undo both tabs. Am I suppose to approach it from behind the fogs? Will the info. I found below work for removal? (sorry, but the info was on another toyota forum,:anonymous:)

    To get it out, squeeze the plastic piece on the end of the adjustment screw, and then push in on the side pins, and then it will come out.

    The answer to your question is NO! Leave fogs in and apply the Lamin-x starting in the middle. Then with your thumb, press the film down in a circle motion from the middle to the outside edges. There is a short video on how to do it on their web site.

    YES!!
    x2... Also leave the foglight on to keep the lens warm. It's easier to work with.

    Yes, leave them in.

    But if you feel you do want to remove them, I found that the tab that is toward the center of the truck could be removed fairly easily by pushing the fog casing tab toward the outside of the truck, from underneath the truck. So if you are removing the driver's side, push the inner tab toward the driver's side.
    Then to remove the other tab, I went to the front of the truck, and very carefully pried with a butter knife wrapped in a soft cloth, between the fog light casing and the plastic bumper fog light access hole, if that makes sense.

    The first one took me about 15 minutes to finaggle out, because I didn't want to break or scratch anything. But the second one took only about 2 minutes tops, once I got a good grasp on what was going on with it.
