you have to go in back of the fog light under the car....there will be a plastic retainer screw to screw off then you can pull out the cap that holds the wires...disconnect the wires and there will be a thin metal clip that holds the bulb in lift it up and there ya go..pull it out and switch it..

that should be about it

all right, ill try it. i think thats the way i tried to go about it the first time, but it looked like even if i got the clips removed there is such limited space that it would come out anyway. thats why i thought you had to remove the entire housing. thanks

but where...

I always read the fog light threads but guess I need to know where I can come up on some OEM foglights not at OEM nissan prices. Any thoughts? Thanks Pablo

do the sentras have a spot on the bumper for the foglights? i never really looked, but i saw one today, that looks smooth on the corners, like they werent intended to have the stock foglights there. IMO aftermarket foglights look better. im thinking about taking my stock ones out and getting some aftermarket ones. if i do, ill put 'em up for sale on here.

some sentras have no spot for the foglights, hence people switch to aftermarket fogs even with factory bumpers, later sentras, have them, 200's always have them, and even without the foglights options, and for those with factory fogs, check out the other thread somewhere here where you can have the fogs on with just the park lights, and even with the high beams, have it, modified it, lovin' it........

finally i put in my bulbs. damn that was a pain in the ass. all the parts around the area scratched up the skin on my fingers and hands cuz there is so little space to work with. but my fogs look good now. i think my bulbs are a little bit crooked still, so i gotta readjust them

BINGO!!! You have to remove the entire foglight housing. Remove the black plastic trim piece with the phillips screwdriver, remove the two bolts top and bottom that have a phillips/10MM (I think) head. After that, there is a weird fitting toward the outside of the car. It'll seem like it's not going to come but it will... just yank harder (felt like I was going to break the stupid thing the first time I did it) Once you get the housing loose, it's easy to unclip the wiring harness and pull the foglight apart to get to the bulb itself. The retainer clip and the little housing that the H3 bulb connect into are a bit of a pain in the butt but it's *MUCH* easier than trying to do it while under the car and in the limited space you have with the housing in place!
