Not sure if this belongs here or under electronics...but here goes..
I have just noticed that one of the front fog lights on my Megane has been cracked/smashed, looks like stone hit it or something. I assume I have to replace the entire unit (unless someone can direct me to a spare cover?) but I need to know if I need to take the bumper off to do so? Is there any way of getting to the back of the unit while its still on the car?
If the bumper does need to come off, does anyone have any tips, pointers or things to avoid while doing it?
1. there isnt enough info on your car. For fog lights, need to know if its petrol or diesel
associated with that it also depends on which side is cracked.
2. having said that .
The fog lights are the normal full unit renault type held in with 4 bolts.
You will need to get a full unit.
3.If your car is a diesel you will be able to get access to both sides with a little arm twisting for removal, thru the wheelarches by removing a couple of torx screws.
4. if its petrol , you can only really get access to the drivers side thru the wheelarch.
5.For both types. you can remove the front plastic undertray(like 8 bolts and you should have access to the back of both foglamps for removal.
Its a little more work but since you are replacing the unit and not a bulb, its probably worth it.
The bumper doesnt need to be removed.
