it happens.. when i had mine at the dealership for a water pump they put it in for free, just charged price for the bulb..
their like 24 bucks, and i never tried to replace them myself though i hear its a pain in the ass without a lift or removing the front bumper.

When I had mine changed at the dealership, they said there was no bulb, that they just had to change the whole light, it was 36 bucks. ( I didnt care, it was free)

1) buy new bulb
2) remove bumper (5-10 minutes)
3) remove old bulb :)30 seconds)
4) install new bulb (1 minute)
4a) test light
5) reinstall bumper (10-15 minutes)

You don't even need to remove the bumper. Just jack up the front of the car a little and you can access the back of the fog light.

unless you know precisely how the foglight is seated in there (and a first-timer will NOT), you have a ridiculously small chance of successfully changing the DRIVER'S side bulb without ruining the lamp with your fingers

PASSENGER side presents no access without removing the bumper. Whatsoever.

I bought my replacement bulbs from pepboys for $7 each. I think they charged you for the replacement.

i got one 4 5$ bucks at autozone, i dont know ho u guys doit but i have to take off the bumper. It takes too much torque to open up the fog light housing to just reach around the fender well or under the car, i had to unscrew the fog light from its frame which i couldnt do w/ out taking of the bumper.
