Default Directions on replacing fog lights?

Does anyone have a link of the fastest and easiest way to replace the fog lights for a D3 R/T? I have my new LED's I want to install today. Thanks!

Jack up the front end or pull up on some ramps, crawl underneath the fascia, reach up in the space between the fascia and underbody shield and remove them by squeezing the tabs.

U don't need a jack at all just lay on the ground to access the back of the fogs, very simple swap!

You don't need to jack it up but if you have bigger than average hands like myself, it will take some cuts and bruises on hands to do the swap. Remember is your replacing with aftermarket fogs, you most likely will have to dremel off the clips or stub walls on the oustside diameter of the bulb.

No Dremel required, mine fit with no problem a few weeks ago and with no jacking up. But yes shovel hands not recommended, but really a 10 min install if that

I used a utility knife to shave down the single notch so that it was almost smooth and it popped right in.

"Staples button....that was easy!" Nice I think they give it a daytime running light effect now. I did have to trim down the tabs on the one side and the wiring harness doesn't "snap" in place but they're not moving.
