undo the splash tray and unplug the light then with the palm of your hand push firmly on the fog light until it falls inside the bar. Then with a flat blade screwdriver unclip the black back cover and change the globe with a H3. Id do them both while your at it. Then to put back in put it in from the back until it clips in the bar.

Other option I use (means don't have to jack up the car.

Remove the inner wheel arch plastic, get to the foggies from behind.

I have been trying this for sometime. After I push on the fog light from the outside, they dont seem to fall into the bar..? I dont want to push too hard incase I break, the "already broken" light.
Is there a clip or something that I need to remove before pushing on them?

No use the palm of your hand and firmly push on the fog light. If the glass is cracked you will have to pull it out from behind. This is exactly what the manual says to get them out.
