     In order to access the fog lights you will have to look behind the front bumper. Use a jack or a car elevator to make everything much easier. Be advised, because if you just need to service the light bulbs, removing the fog light assemblies is not necessary. You can simply rotate the socket of the light bulb counterclockwise and install the replacement. But if the fog light assemblies are damaged, you will have to first disconnect the electrical harness marked in blue in the next image.

     And then, remove the three 8 mm bolts that hold the assembly, using the socket wrench. We marked with red the position of the bolt on the right. The other two are on the left and upper side of the fog light. After you remove the bolts, the assembly will come out very easily.
