The foglights in BA's are different to BF's.

But on mine...

Remove the inner wheel guard to get to the back of the fog light unit. disconnect harness, bulb twists 1/4 turn and removes, new bulb twists back in.

jump in the car, take it to your mechanic haha
Mine was such a pain the first time I did it.
If you stick your head under the front of the car you should see the screws and bolts that hold the cover on.
You need to take them all out, remove the cover & pull out the lights to change the globes, from what I remember the fog lamps themselves pull out of the bar.

You dont need to take the inner guard plastics out to change the fog light globes on XRs. Simply remove lower splash tray and push the light out of the bar with the palm of your hand. They are only clipped in. BF is the same. Datamines car is different cause its a GT and has different lights.

yeah the GT is slightly different,
To get under mine I parked it with the front sticking out over the gutter, could get under it nice and easy then.

I just did this job on the weekend - what a pain.
Apart from the fact that I had a sore back....dropped down the bottom guard - pushed the light through - then couldn't work out how to get the globe out through such a small rubber boot hole.....
Then realised the back of the foglight came off - then it was easy.

One of those jobs that takes you half an hour the first time but once you've done it once, the next time will be 5 minutes.
