    Needing to find out how to remove fog light from the bumper. I can't figure out what's holding it in there. I know... I'm a newbie to these newer models!

    Are you replacing the bulb or the whole assembly?

    Added:

    The bulb is simple, unplug the connector then twist the bulb from the back and pull out.

    To remove the entire thing, unplug the connector. Then there's a tab on the inside of the fog light bumper (I think it's on the outer edge) that you need to press to release the fog light assembly. You might need some pressure from the back to pop it out. Hope that helps.

    It just has 2 ears on each side that pop into holes in the bumper for the light. there is also a clip on the adj srew coming straight off the back of the housing that pops into hole in bumper. Basically you have to grasp it slightly twisting to work the ears out & push from behind the light to release the adj knob. Work from under bumper to see where things are. you'll see what I mean. Then wire unplugs.

    The clip for the adj screw will probably stay in the bumper when light comes out. it has 2 knubs to relase it from the bumper. Take it out & put on the adj screw before putting light back in. Makes it much easier to get them back in.
