Many cars, trucks and SUV's now come standard with fog lights. Fog lights are an additional set of headlights placed lower in the front bumper of the automobile. These useful lights allow drivers to see better in foggy, rainy or snowy conditions. The Honda Civic is one automobile that often has these lights installed standard. Just like a headlight, if you notice a fog light has burnt out, you should replace it immediately. This project is not difficult and can be done in about fifteen minutes.

Park your Honda Civic and turn off the engine. Wait about 30 minutes for the car to completely cool down in order to avoid burning yourself when installing the new fog light.

Crawl under the front bumper with a flash light. Turn the light on and look directly behind the fog light lens. On some year Civics there will be a plastic dust cover that needs to be removed. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry this off.

Unplug the wiring harness from the rear of the fog light assembly. Then reach into the assembly and grab hold of the light bulb. Give it a quarter turn to the left to release it. Pull it out and discard appropriately.

Insert replacement bulb number 9006. Twist it to the right to lock it in place. Then plug the wring harness back in and replace the dust cover.


It is best to install two new fog lights so that they shine with equal strength.
