C4GP fog light

Post by tomaskriv »

Hello all,

I must replace fog light bulb on my C4GP 2014. The problem is how to get it out. I understand that the plastic cover must go first to be able to access the bulb. Question is how to remove that plastic cover. I don't want to use force alone. I believe that there are some clips that hold parts in one piece. Can't see any obvious places where to use screwdriver or some other flat tool. Maybe someone did this procedure in the past?

Use some trim removal tools (with flat plastic edges) to remove the areas shown at 'a' by inserting the flat tool and levering down to unclip the tabs. Do the top or bottom first and lever a little at a time as you go along - this should make it easier.

Then undo the 2 bolts:

Then turn the assembly a quarter of a turn in the direction of the arrow:

Note: The bulb does not detach from the plastic holder - replace the whole thing:

Just push a plastic flat bladed tool in the locations arrowed so you can lever either the top of the bottom side off first, then one of the sides and the rest should be easy.

Thank you all guys. Just finished. Still managed to break one clip... In my opinion this cover removal could be designed a bit easier.
