Default 98 fog light housing

clipped my front valence and broke the bracket for my fog light so the light was just hanging there by the detachable power cord.

i un clipped and pulled the light off, now i have one fog light on and ones gone. question is, how do i get my fog light that's been salvaged out of the bumper. there's three bolts and i tried to unbolt and unscrew but it just wont budge.

A lot of penetrating fluid! Make sure to give it plenty of time to work!

use some penatrating oil on the screws, then use a socket and if they still wont budge, just apply enough pressure to snap the screws off, they are attached with T nuts. The T nuts and screws are replaced easy after that. New brackets can be had from LMC last time I looked.

Yep, the top screws are the hard ones, I believe the valence needs to be removed to get those.
