Assuming you just mean swapping the bulbs in the fog lights, it's quite simple. Just like changing the bulbs in the headlights only a little harder to reach. Your best bet is to remove the screws holding the headlights in place and move the headlights out of your way, then you should be able to reach down below where the headlight was and get at the fog lights with no problem. I actually didn't even need to unplug the headlights, i was able to move them out of the way enough without ever unplugging it and had the highs, lows, and fogs swapped out in 20 min. or less.

Very cool! Personally I think you'd have to be on drugs to want 6000k lose any contrast, including when illuminating DEER. Looks like a nice alternative to HIDs, although I know HIDs can be warm/neutral temps as well.

I know this an older thread, but as I read the whole thing because I was curious about others experience with these lights I figures others might as well.

I have been running ZXE bulbs in my wife's Cobalt for almost two years now. In that time she has been through two sets. Getting Sylvania to honor the warranty is no trouble at all so that is something. When the first bulb went out I just bought a second set and swap them out one at a time and when I get two bad ones I call and get replacements.

My father has also had these in his Fusion for about a year and had one blow on him already. So while they are great looking bulbs and easily an upgrade over most cars stock, in my experience they have a much shortened lifespan. :(
