The glass cover of one of the fog lights has broken on my car. I thought changing it couldn't be too hard a job and so I already have a whole fog light part to replace it myself. The Haynes Manual I have suggests there are to different styles of Fiesta fog light access that require it to be changed 2 different ways, either pop off the plastic panel and change it, or unscrew a screw pop off the panel and change it.

Now, the problem is... My Fiesta isn't either of those!!

From what I have deduced I can only work out I have to take off the entire front bumper to access the fog light. Is this right or am I missing something?

If necessary I could take a picture of where the fog light resides if it would aide anyone in knowing how to replace the fog light on my Fiesta?

What is the country of origin for this Fiesta? Trim level? Are you sure the Haynes Manual you have covers the year of your MKVI? – Mark Johnson Apr 25 '12 at 23:17
@Mark Johnson It is a UK Ford Fiesta, 05 plate (2005) 1.4 diesel, GHIA. The Hyanes Manual is for years 2002-2008. – CurtisJC Apr 26 '12 at 12:44
On some vehicles you need to remove the headlamp to get at the fog light. I'm not familiar with Fiestas, but it may be worth a try. – Tim Apr 27 '12 at 13:20
@Tim I'll try that tomorrow while it's light (and hopefully not raining!). – CurtisJC Apr 28 '12 at 20:56
@Tim removing the headlight provided access to thru fog light – CurtisJC Apr 29 '12 at 13:33

It looks like on some Fiestas you need to remove the headlamp to access the fog light.
