Replacing Fog Lights on 2012 Focus 5-door...

Hello all,

I'm completely new to this board, and this is my first post. If this type of thread has been gone over before, my apologies.

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to change the fog lights on our new Focus. I removed the Torx screws from the interior wheel-well cover, but the cover does not come off.

I tried coming in from the top, as if I were replacing the main headlights, but that doesn't allow access either.

We had a 2002 Focus and the replacing of lights was a snap, so I'm a little frustrated.

Any ideas/advice/instructions would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks in advance...

He's replacing the entire bezel. OP just wants to replace the bulbs. The easiest way is to remove the headlight housings and go in from the top. I believe it's only 2 screws that attach the headlights.

Still applies and I've done it both ways and prefer from the bottom. Correct on the two screws. Also two screws per fog lamp.

I just used a thin micro fiber towel and flat head screw driver and popped them out.

I prefer going in from the bottom, taking the fog lights out and then you can see the tabs on the bezels and work them out from the back and front. It may take five minutes longer but is cake...
