Hi Folks, I have got a 2007 2.2 diesel & noticed today that my passengers side front fog lamp has been smashed (prob happended when the storms hit recently). A new one has been ordered.

I've done a search & it looks like I can change this without removing the bumper. Is this correct & has anyone with a diesel done this.

I have checked the car and it does have the 2 holes cut out on the underside where the fogs are but I'm sure I read on one of the threads that you may not be able to do it this way for the diesel as thats where the intercooler is.

Would taking the wheel arch liner of be an option also ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated & apologies for another fog lamp thread.

Its time consuming but taking the bumper off is pretty easy. The other way would be through the wheel arch.

You do NOT need to remove the bumper. If you look at the bottom of the bumper there are two holes directly underneath the fog light.

One of them is the beam adjuster, the other is the bolt that secures the unit. Undo this bolt and the unit just comes out :)

Yes you can remove both front fogs on the derv. No need to remove the bumper/go through the wheel arch at all. I did mine the other day to fit JDM yellow bulbs. Very nice they are too, I might add. :cool:

You'll need to use a 10mm socket and long extension through the inner 2 holes. You'll have to raise the front of the vehicle on axle stands to get the socket in, though.

Use blu-tack in the socket so when removing the bolt so it doesn't fall behind the bumper upon extraction. The fog unit should then just hinge free.

Just confirming this, I have a 2011 Civic SI and I was able to unscrew bolt through one of the holes under bumper and then slide light out the top, disconnect the wire and just replace with another light even though the Honda dealership told me that the bumper would need to come off! It was literally a 5-10 min job.
