How easy is it to get into it so I can replace a globe? I have done a search and got nothing, and I have had a quick look on how to do it but it looks ver complicated...

Cheers,

Matt

Haven't had to do it, but second hand info says it is a lot harder than it looks. 8-)

you've got to remove the stone tray under the bumper and access it from the back.

It's only a 5 minute job... don't even need to completely undo the splash tray, just half of it will do (4 or 5 little bolts), push the foglight inside its mounting, unplug the clip and pull the whole assembly out.

They are only a 5min job i just replaced both of mine, if you read your manual on page 188 i think it is all there on how to replace them.

The are not a sealed unit, once you take the light out you need to unclip the light from the holder then you can replace the bulb...

Good luck, the hardest thing is undoing the stone tray :-)

I did as the manual said ... and nearly busted the light ... the Territory ones seem a bit harder than the Falcon XRs.

I have just got the Ford Service department to replace my fog light globes when they blow ... under warranty as well. Will be a bit of a bugger when warranty runs out though.

I have heard there is another way of extracting the light forward out the front of the bar ... without having to remove the lower splash tray ... not sure on that though.

I used a hell of a lot of force trying to push the fog light back and it wouldn't budge at all ... couple of nasty creaks and cracking sounds it made though ... still in place though ... and in one piece.

I just gave up ... I didn't exactly wish to break the entire light.
