Ok, I've wrestled with this damn foglight for days.. those friggin screws are ciezed like a bitch, an I gotta change the bulb.. anybody have suggestions? I've tried taking the whole assembly out, the driver's side was no problem, but the a/c hoses are in the way on the passenger side... help appreciated..

i had the exact same problems. so frustrating for something that seemed so simple. all i wanted to do was change the fogs lights, and it took so long! hehe. anyways, i ended up having to use vice-grips, and it stripped the screws, so I just put new ones on.

heheh, alright... thanks guys..

..btw, JPMX6GT, I did it your way on the driver's side, but for the passenger side there's all kinds of hoses in the way of one of the screws, and the other screw is done cuz it turns the whole thing, not just the nut... oh well... guess I'll just mess with the visegrips again...

Those things are such a pain in the ass to remove. I used a electric router tool and cut the head of the screws off and then used pliers to pulled it out, and drilled bigger holes for the new screw - that is for the new non rustable PLASTIC screws. ;)
