Changing Halogen Fog Light Bulbs to LED

Post by DavidinScotland » Mon Dec 31, 2018 4:21 pm

Has anyone changed their halogen fog light bulbs to LED?
Would appreciate any advice in accessing and the type of LED bulbs you used.
Thanks

Has anyone got the foglight surround off?
as according to the manual you use a screw driver and pull it off.
But Ive not managed to budge mine yet.

Ive brought some Osram Daybreaker Ultimates to fit, but cannot get to the bulb housing, save for breaking the plastic.
it seems to be that some special tool needed not a screwdriver...

The manual is a bit hopeless on this.

I tried for 20 mins to work out how you get the surround off, agree that the manual is useless, it shows a slot in which you are supposed to put a screwdriver in and lever it out, there is no such slot in mine.
Anyone

Hello

I did manage to get mine off but it was a struggle and one broke £12 for new one
There is a slot but its useless I puled out using the grill for purchase

Just looked at my FR its a My19 and you are right NO slot on the grill

Can’t get to the 3 screws without firstly taking off the plastic cover
