How do you replace a fog light bulb?

If your car is equipped with fog lights (not all Civics have these), they provide you with enhanced visibility when driving in foggy or misty conditions. However, like all other bulbs on your car, they’ll eventually burn out and need to be replaced. Here’s how to do that:

Make sure to get the right replacement bulb. Honda recommends an H11 (55 watts).

  1. Locate the fog light that’s blown

  2. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screw

  3. Pull the fog light assembly out

  4. Push the tab and remove the coupler

  5. Turn the old bulb and pull it out of the assembly

  6. Insert the new bulb and turn it to lock it in place

  7. Replace the coupler

  8. Check that the bulb work

  9. Replace the assembly in the bumper and replace the screw
