2012 Equinox Fog Light
Look Under Bumper
Pull Off Power Plug
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) GM Chevy Equinox in replacing a burnt out fog light bulb in the front bumper.

Owners of other GM vehicles such as the Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Malibu, Impala, Camaro, Corvette, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, Colorado, Avalanche, Silverado, Verano, Encore, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore, Enclave, Canyon, Sierra, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Savana, ATS, XTS, CTS, SRX and Escalade may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement fog light bulb is part # H11 from manufacturers such as Sylvania, Osram, PIAA, Philips, Putco, Nokya, Hella and GE.

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

No tools are needed to change the bulb. A flashlight can be useful if you are working in a dim garage or at night.

Fog Light Bulb Removed
The first steps are to make sure the transmission is in park, engage the emergency / parking brake and chock the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from moving.

Then slide under the front bumper and locate the tan fog light housing and the black plastic base of the fog light bulb.

Gently pry away the two retaining clips on the sides of the power connector and slide the plug straight off.

Rotate the base of the old bulb 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pull it straight out of the housing.

I recommend buying the Philips H11 bulbs since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

Insert & 1/4 Turn Clockwise
Test New Fog Light Bulb
Insert a new # H11 bulb in to the fog light housing and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

Test the new bulb by turning on the headlights and switching on the fog lights.
