    Forgive me if you did it but, did you flip the headlights up before you did it? Makes it MUCH easier, and I have two catcher's mits for hands.

    Can't you just drop the panel under the front of the car and unbolt the brackets like on the LT-1's? I never had to change them on the LS1 car yet, but I thought it was the same way.

    All you have to do is take out 4 plastic clips that hold part of the underneath plastic cover near the radiator. Once you pull it down there are two bolts on each light that have to be taken off. Pull out the fog light about 3-4 inches and remove the bulbs. Tight fit but should take about 5 mins each light.

    yep, 4 plastic clips, pop em with a screwdriver and you got it. And while you're at it, might as well change to the cyberwhite lamps. Makes a big difference. Get them from wallmart and splice the wiring in. You'll have much brighter fogs

    I did the drivers side on my 97 Z28 by going in from underneath. The passenger side I did by popping the plastic pins on each side of the lamp and slid it out.

    Drivers side going from underneath = 20 minutes.
    Passenger side popping pins out = about 7 minutes.

    Which sux ass cause it turned out to be the relay

    There is an access panel underneath on the Camaros that makes it easier to get to stuff. I think the Camaro foglight is all one piece-no replaceable bulb if I remember right. I have one I need to change so I'll be finding out soon.....
