      Fog Lights

      Does anyone know what the fog light bulbs are? I've looked on this site, I've searched google, I've looked on sylvania's bulb list, and I've also looked in the manual and i cant find anything

      Since its a first gen and I'm assuming you're talking about stock bulbs, the bulb size is 881. Sewer this thread: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=242. Hope this helps.

      Two screws on the back of the bumper cover. Could be done with bumper on. Easier with it off of course.

      I haven't heard of cars using purple HIDs from the factory for fogs, I've seen a few people choose to go that route. IMO Yellow is the best color for fog lights since it penetrates fog the best...

      you could take out the headlight and reach down, or jack the car up and get at it through the splash shield..

      The splash shield is your "path of least resistance" if you have access to a jack and a couple of jack stands.
