Fog Light access on Turbo Sport Design Packet

Recommended Posts

2005 Turbo with the Sport Design Package.

The driver's side foglight is out.

I have attempted access by pulling the grill. However, even following instructions to compress the grill with hands and tilt/rotate to release the grill clamps have been unsuccessful. Just feels like I am going to break something.

Both OPC service reps (not the mechanics) say the lower front bumper will have to be pulled to access the lamp to determine if it is a bad bulb or the wiring harness. One rep stated 1.5 hrs labor, the other stated 0.5 hrs labor, just to pull the bumper. Euro 100/hr labor charge seems expensive for this. If I go this route, I will certainly nail down a labor cost first.

Is it truly this complicated to access the foglight with the Sports Design Package or is there an easier way to access, or even test to see if it is simply the bulb?

Is it possible to gain access by removing the fender well cover? If so, I could simultaneously drain the intercooler hose of oil, replace the failed alarm horn and upgrade the diverter valves.
