Fog Light Replacement
Posted 13 February 2004 - 07:09 PM
I know that I can just buy a new bulb and replace it, but I don't think I should since there is a hole in the cover anyways. In addition, I would like to just buy a new set of fog lights anyways.
1. Are replacing the fog lights very difficult?
2. Any recommedations for buying new fog lights?
3. Do local parts stores usually carry quality fog lights or do I need to order them from the Subaru dealership?

How big is the hole in the light ? - if it's small enough you could seal it with some super glue and save yourself the expense of buying more lights !

1 - remove fog light from car and dry it out...
2 - replace the bulb
3 - cover both fog lights with StonGard shields.
these create a solid seal and keep further moisture out of the light (the moisture is what killed your bulb) - at the same time they protect the light from further rock damage. I have StonGard light shields on all of my Subaru's... stuff, works, great!!!! StonGard is a transparent adhesive material that does not affect the light output, but does protect the fog light itself from rock/debris damage....
see: StonGard light shields here
hope this helps.

I did add some metal mesh grates with smaller holes in them to prevent future stone hits. It seems to have worked, but they are rusty now and look like crap. That StonGard stuff Jamie mentioned sounds good.

Subie Gal also has a good point with the stonguard, fixes it and it won't happen again!
