Are you trying to do this with the fog light housing in the car? If so it will be next to impossible. You will have to take the black plastic trim piece around the headlights (2 screws one on each side). Then there is the 1 alignment screw at the top of the fog light holding it in and the small spring at the bottom. After you get it out just turn the black plastic piece (its a booger to get back on). There will be a wire from the light to the black part and a ground wire from the black part to the housing. The light is held in with a spring loaded wire. You can probably figure out the rest from there.

Another note: You will probably have to put on a different connector on the new bulb. Usually the new bulbs come with a spade type connector, the one nissan uses is a bullet type.

They made Zero, except for the drivetrain.

Take the foglight out of the car......there are four bolts holding it in from the backside behind the bumper cover, itll be easier to switch the bulb with it out--- or you can do it in-- either or--- it is an H3
