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?

  • 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 I'll try that tomorrow while it's light (and hopefully not raining!).
