My driver side fog lamp got a sone hit and broke the lens. Must buy complete replacement unit ($109.88). The install requires removal of the front bumper, so the total cost by my Honda dealer was $278.81. So the bottom line here is you could do your own with the help of a friend for the lift off and on of the bumper. I did opt for the dealer as I had my air bag recall done at the same time.

To replace just a bulb is outlined in the OM on pages 351 & 352. There is an adjustment screw that I marked in red if you wish to change the fog light beam pattern UP or Down.

remember when!

Awful price. The price we pay for modern technology! Remember when all you needed to do was use a phillips screwdriver and pop the lens cover to change a bulb, all for less than a buck!!!

My 01 Civic has similar fixtures that are forever breaking. I've replaced them a good 8-10 times by now. The glass feels thin and if it is hot seems quite fragile. I was hoping the height of the CT's lights would help protect them.

My mustang fogs run about the same price, but install is super easy.

I'm just glad we have $0 deductible on all our vehicles, that way if something is outragious and I don't want to fix it myself, I just make a phone call, and as long as it's a comp claim, no increase in premiums!!!!!

That happened to one of my fogs once on my 08 accord (same fogs btw) dodging a city bus that swung out without looking smh... I was able to find a refurbished OEM replacement off a crashed accord for 40 bucks (was pretty much brand new) on eBay and was able to swap it out myself. Sometimes you get lucky on eBay so I constantly check for random crazy deals. There was no way I was paying 200 at the dealership without installation lol. Do not get aftermarket ones they suck compared to OEM.

You can definitely do it yourself with the help of a friend if you want. The fogs are attached to the bumper not the car so it must be removed to replace the fog.

i carry 0 deductibles too but foglight damage would likely be considered collision and not comprehensive, so not a good claim to make. when i dented a rim in a detroit pothole my agent called it a collision with the road and it would count against my accidents count. checked around with other providers at the time and they all stated the same.

It's definately something that has to be reviewed through your individual policies, since each state is different. Here, if the road causes damage, such as a bent rim, you make a claim with the owner of the road, i.e. city, state, parish, etc. The insurance company will pay your claim, and file with the state to reimburse them as well, so it's really jsut using the insurance company as a middle man.
