    Driving light change

    Can someone tell me the way to change the bulbs on my driving lights on my 01 TA. I don't see a way to get to the back of the lens without alot of disassembly. I don't mind taking it apart but I figured there would be a quicker way. Thanks.

    Define driving lights first of all, but if you are talking the turn signals in the front facia, easy to do, either reach through the openings below or use the trap door under the front, you will need to get right on the ground to see them.

    For the fog lights I just reach through the top and contort my hand a bit to get to them, I think you can also get them from underneth as well.

    Yea the fog lights. I don't see a way to get my arm down far enough to reach them. Might give it a shot though.

    lift up your headlights manually, your owners manual can tell you how, then take off th black plastic cover around the lights, you now have easy accress to the back of the DRLs

    I pulled the clips out of the bottom of the bumper and squeezed behind it to get to the fog lights. You'll have to do it mostly by feel, but I couldn't wedge my arms in from the top either.

    Why the hell did they design it so you can't change out a bulb simply? It's a real PITA, I have to go up from the bottom of the bumper. I mounted them closer with aftermarkets so theyre easier to change out

    Get a 10mm wrench or socket and remove the front two bolts from the plastic slashgaurd underneath the DRL's. After that you can move and access panel down and reach up from underneath and undo the light socket to change bulbs. Or if your hands are not to big you can reach in from the useless opening directly underneath the DRL and reach it from there.
