This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and maybe also the updated 2017 model year) Ford Fusion sedan in changing a burnt out fog light bulb located in the front bumper fascia cover.

Owners of other Ford or Lincoln vehicles such as the Focus, Fiesta, C-Max, Mustang, Escape, Transit Connect, Edge, Flex, Explorer, Expedition, Taurus, F-150, EcoSport, MKC, MKZ, MKS, MKX, MKT and the Navigator may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement halogen bulb is part number H11 which is available from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko and PIAA.

If you would like to have brighter fog lights, install some compatible H11 LED bulbs.

No tools are required to access and replace the fog light bulbs.

Plastic Fastener Removed
Remove 2nd Thumb Screw
Remove 3rd Fastener
To access the fog light bulbs, you will have to go in behind the black plastic wheel well liner.

The first step is to turn the steering wheel all the way in the opposite direction of the burnt out fog light bulb.

Turning the front wheels will create more working room in the wheel well.

Locate the three black plastic fasteners along the outer edge of the wheel well liner or "splash guard" in front of the tire.

Loosen the three plastic thumb screws by turning them counterclockwise.

Once the thumb screws have been loosened a few turns, you can pry out the base of the fasteners.

Pull Back Wheel Well Liner
Back of Fog Light Housing
Press In Release Tab
Gently pull back the plastic wheel well liner.

Press in the release tab on the black plastic electrical connector and slide the plug straight off the base of the old bulb.

Pull Off Power Plug
1/4 Turn Counterclockwise
Pull Out Old # H11 Bulb
Rotate the base of the old bulb 1/4 turn counterclockwise before pulling it straight out of the housing.


Empty Bulb Socket
Insert New # H11 Bulb
1/4 Turn Clockwise
Try to avoid touching the glass part of the new halogen bulb with your fingers or anything greasy in the engine bay.

If you do get the new bulb dirty, wipe it clean with a rubbing alcohol moistened paper towel.

Insert a new # H11 bulb in to the socket and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

For brighter fog lights, install some compatible replacement H11 LED bulbs.

Push On Electrical Connector
Re-Insert Plastic Fasteners
Tighten Clockwise
Push the power plug straight on to the base of the new fog light bulb until it clicks securely in to place.

Close the black plastic wheel well liner.

Replace 3rd Thumb Screw
Wheel Well Liner Secured
Test New Fog Light Bulb
Re-insert the three fasteners and tighten the thumb screws in the clockwise direction until they are snug.

Test the new light bulbs by turning on the headlights and then activate the fog light switch.
