    Fog lamp replacement

    What about the fog lamps bulbs is there an easy way to replace them? do I have to have the Z jacked up or can I just slide underneath it thanks again.

    No need to jack the car up. I have always replaced my fog bulbs from the top, but you should be able to do it from the bottom as well.

    I just removed the headlights to get access to my foglights. Had to replace the stockers with a pair of Hella Micro DE's; wanted HID driving lights to replace the fog lights.

    Now, just to let you know, there is some fabrication involved with changing out the stock foglights and using the Hella units in the stock light brackets. You'll need to grind down one side of the Hella units a bit because part of the stock bracket will prevent the light from pivoting up enough to shoot straight ahead. Not too bad, just a little time consuming. Then you need to do some fabrication to the end-cap of the Hella units so that the HID bulbs don't fall out of the light housings; I used a zip-tie to keep the cap from popping off. Otherwise, the install was really straight forward. Again, it just takes some time; took me about three hours for the install. Are the HID kits pricey? A little...but in my opinion, totally worth it.
