How do you get to the Fog Lights?

Recommended Posts

OK I changed out my fog lights in my 996 to match the Litronics in color and brightness.. So I thought I would do the same for the Cayenne.. ok out comes the manual.. takes a H11.. ok nice pics on how to change all bulbs accept the fog lights!! Anyone have one burn out yet, and if so how the hell do you get to the thing.. does the whole bottom black piece have to come off?

Haven't tried it yet, but couldn't you access the fog lights by removing the head light assembly? The manual shows it to be an easy task to remove the head light unit. Once done, I would think there's a big gap which will allow you to get to the fogs.

OK. I tried accessing the fog lights by simply removing the head light assembly...2 minutes. Very easy. It does works. Who ever told you is doing it the hard way. There's a special tool to remove the headlight. Takes 5 sec to pop out the lights. You can clearly see the foglight down the bottom. Just reach down and replace bulb.


As a matter of fact, if you have small enough hands, the side lights can be changed out to the clear lights the same way. No need to go through the steps of removing the fender liner, etc...

I found another access point. The one through the headlight is too small for most people.

If you look under the front where the fog light is, you'll see the thick torson bar that goes across from one side of the wheels to the other. Right in front of the torson bar is a squarish plastic molding. It is held on by philips head screws. Its the only piece under the car in this area that has phillips head screws. There's five screws total...three underneath and two more in the fender well. Remove these five screws and then the molding. This will give you full access to change your fogs as well as side markers. Turn the fog light counter clock wise (looking from the back of the lights) to loosen.

Makes sense they designed it like this to make quick change of bulbs easily accessible. It takes only minutes to remove these screws. I did it with my steering wheel straight. There's room in the fender well for a short phillip. You can always turn the wheels for better access.

Hope this helps.
