Hello everyone...I am new to the board and just got my 2001 IS last week. Although I thought I checked out all of the lights when I bought it, I must of missed the fog light. I noticed the driver side fog light was out, how would I go about changing the bulb? I looked in the manual and it listed the bulb as a HB4 W-51 type C. Any help or recommendations would be helpful.

to replace the fog light bulb you'll need to take off the front bumper and then remove the clip on the back of the housing to pull the bulb out. There is a tutorial on removing the bumper if you search it.

No you do not have to take off the front bumper. The fog lights are bolted onto the bumper. find the 2 bolts, the are in the side of the foglight, unbolt them the fog light slides out and now you can replace the bulb.

Whoa there guys! It's alot easier. Turn your wheels to the right. Pop out the two black plastic rivits that hold the plastic wheel well to the fender. Partially pry out the plastic wheel well to access the rear of the foglight, back of the sidemarker, etc. Twist off the dust cap from the back of the foglight and there is your bulb for replacement. 9006 should be right for 2001.

there is absolutely no need to pull off the bumper, take out the fog lights housings, or anything drastic.

Thanks for the simple write-up. I was able to change a burned out fog in 15 minutes this way. +rep
