2014 Tucson Fog Light
Under Bumper Cover
Loosen Plastic Phillips Screw
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 2nd generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Hyundai Tucson SUV in changing a burnt out fog light bulb in the front bumper cover.

Owners of other Hyundai and Kia vehicles such as the Accent, Elantra, Sonata, Azera, Veloster, Tiburon, Genesis, Lavita, Veracruz, Santa Fe, ix35, Equus, Cadenza, Forte, Optima, Rio, Soul, Sedona, Sorento, Spectra and Sportage may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement fog light bulb is part number 880 (or H27W).

If you would like to have brighter fog lights, install some compatible 880 LED bulbs.

You may also be able to use the # 881 bulb which has a 90 degree bend to the housing.

The tools needed to replace the bulbs include a Phillips head screwdriver, a 12mm socket and a 1/4" or 3/8" drive ratchet.

Pull Out Plastic Fastener
Remove Plastic Screw
Loosen 12mm Bolt
The first step is to move to the side of the SUV with the burnt out fog light bulb.

Then slide under the front bumper cover with a Phillips head screwdriver, a 12mm socket and a ratcheting wrench.

Remove the plastic fasteners on the underside of the splash shield by first loosening the black plastic screw in the counterclockwise direction with the Phillips head screwdriver. Then pry out the larger outer piece of the fastener.

Loosen the single bolt near the middle of the plastic panel by turning it counterclockwise with the 12mm socket and ratcheting wrench.
