Question Fog light cracked. How replace???

A fog light lens on my 300C has cracked. Can it be replaced without removing the bumper. Has anyone done it? Is it easy DOY? Any write-ups?

Thanks in advance.

its held in the bumper by two nuts.You can get at them by taking off the bellypan, but its such a pain to get at, thats its easier to remove the bumper
I had qualms about taking the bumper off like you, but in fact its an easy 10-15 minute job (honest!)
theres a sticky about it

A stone kicked up from the highway and busted the fog light lenz on the passenger side of my car last week. I am changing out both fog lights as the drivers side lenz is riddled with scratches from road debris ( as was the passenger side ) and the two new lenzes installed will look like a much cleaner job. Local body shop doing the job for me tomorrow morning, each lenz is costing me 37 bucks, plus labor. Should take them about an hour altogether. I can't be bothered pulling the nose/bumper off myself. Murphy and his laws always show up. Let my body guy worry about Murphy.

umm no need to pay anyone to swap out fog lights...it is really easy to pop them out.


what i usually do if i just need to pop the fogs out is i start by moving the steering wheel to either direction depending on which side i am starting on first so that the front tires are facing a certain direction so that i can easily take out the 3 rivets that hold the wheel wells in.

once i take off those 3 rivets on each side i simply pull back the wheel well back a bit so that i can reach with one hand and make sure that the bulbs are out of the fogs first and then push against the two clips that hold the fogs in place with the fascia itself.

it can be a bit of pain to get them off especially if they are really tight and held in place in there but it is possible to pop them out that way though without the need of any special tools other than your own hands and it is as simple as that without even removing the front fascia.
