    09 Impreza: How to change fog lights?

    Does anybody know how to change the fog light bulbs in the 08/09 Impreza? The owner's manual says to take it to the dealer but all there are are some funny looking plastic clips that I do not want to break.

    The stock bulbs are useless and are of no use when driving; they only look nice to see 4 lights.

    I believe you need to take them off from the rear, I had my bumper off to replace my headlights, and it looked to me like the twist about a 1/4 turn and pull out type of removal. If you pop out a few of the plastic clips I am sure you could reach up from behind and get them off without having to remove the whole bumper assembly. What kinds replacement bulb you planning to put in? I'd like to put something a lil more potent in mine also. Since getting my HID's installed, I have not even used them, because they help very little.

    Bulbs changed

    I used a pair of side cutters and worked the plastic plugs out, the bulbs were easily acceible from the backside. Be careful with the plastic plugs as they can be reused when the center pin is retracted.

    I installed the Sylvania Silverstars but they did not make a huge difference, i think it may be due to the plastic cover inside the fog light and the shape of the reflectors inside.

    yeah I did mine, pretty easy! I just used a flat head to pry those plastic plugs up in the middle and just pulled them out.... But what were they thinking? The fogs do nothing, I some better lamps in there and you still cant tell their on!!

    Anyone put HIDs in them yet????
