Sorry man do a search on this. i have answered the same question 2 or 3 times asked recently. Its been asked and covered a few times. H3 globe is the replacement. Also if you have your manual its spot on on how to do it.

Yeah man its in your XR manual. You will need to remove the bottom splash tray to do it easiest.
And yeah do both at once. Make sure you dont adjust any of the fog light aiming adjusters on the back casing.

just ready a couple of your replies to other people, seems like your the only one who knows how to do it haha, but im hoping i dont have the trouble another guy did where he couldnt push the fog light into the inner bar... i think you should be able to get at it without pushing them into the bar, i dont see why you need to push on them lol

The fog lights are only push clipped into the bar and pushing them out is the way to do it. The manual also says to use your palm. You have to totally take the light out to change the globe. To put it back in you push it back in through the back of the bar until you feel it clip back in position. Check page 187 of your book if its nearby.
Lol ive changed mine many times because i use them constantly.
Its actually alot easier than it sounds. Removing the splash tray is the best way to do it.

Oh and if the lens is cracked be careful you dont cut yourself. Dont be scared to use a bit of push force. You wont break anything.

Cheers man goodluck. Maybe see if you can replace just the lens whilst its out from a wrecker. And if you want put some Territory fog light lens protective covers on them later on. They also fit the falcons.

All the best.
