I don't have a picture but you have to remove the fog light assembly first. 2 nuts on the inside edge and a bolt on the outside edge. after removing the light press the 2 little clips and it should slide out.

sounds like time to start unbolting and just figure it out. sounds like once you get the foglight off, which i would bet are those 2 bolts, the honeycomb can just be snapped out (probably those clips)


Goodluck

its definiteltly those that one bolt off to the side and the spring things holding in the fog light. i bet its a compress the spring and turn 90 degrees to release or something like that. thats what i would try. then worry about the plastic part

yeah, it really looks like you would have to undo that one bolt and those plastic studs. which sucks, i wouldnt want to break those either. i know someone just masked them off, if your up for the work.



im assuming you want to paint it

There are three parts holding the foglight onto the honeycomb, two are those flimsy metal nuts on the plastic posts (right side), and one bolt (left side).

Just get the right sockets to remove the nuts and bolt, and you will have your foglight out. The bolt with the spring on it is the adjuster for the light. If I remember correctly, that does not have to be removed to get the fog light out of the honeycomb.

I have no idea how to get the honey comb out after that. You may just have to paint them while they're in the bumper. Blue painter's tape and an exacto knife should do just fine.

remove the bolt and the two metal clips and the fog light comes out. you can remove the clips with a pair of pliers. (lefty loosy and righty tighty)
