i have an issue...i have pre-lci car but just recent i replaced the oem stock bumper with oem lci msport front bumper. the msport fog housings are bigger than the pre-lci fog housings so my original fog lights dont fit into the new lci msport housing (too lose). However i bought new bulbs to fit the fog housings but now the bulb socket ( the two pins inside socket are too wide apart) wont fit the plug/harness from car. Any ideas???

I changed out my bulb using this DIY and the passenger side clip came off right away. Took my 5 minutes to get it in and out. The driver side was a bitch and it would not unclip. I took a mini flat head screwdriver used for eye glasses and pushed the clip in and it popped off. Other than that great DIY.

Thanks for the help - I can't believe I previously paid the dealer $200 to do this. So easy.
