You have to remove the wheels and then the fender lining to replace the bulbs. This is how the service manual shows replacing the bulbs, use a flat head to remove the liner tabs. You can do it, might take you 20 mins ea. or less. But you can turn the wheel pull the liner back and reach in to replace them if you have done this before as well.

Yes..Search for the fog light mod thread posted by Shibumi. You can also do the mod by wiring a seperate circuit using an aftermarket 9006 hid kit..only downside is loss of factory switch. .but shibumi1 method retains oem switch function but you can still run fogs with no other lights on

DIY Bumper Plugs for Front License Plate Pre-Drilled Holes

I wanted to share this simple DIY fix...but not sure where to put it so I'm putting it here and the moderator can move it wherever it should belong...

anyway..I was searching around and there were ideas where one would order some bumper plugs online and then have to drill the holes bigger and whatnot...DON'T DO THAT!...I would not feel comfortable drilling or making anything permanent to my car...plus you never know when you might need to put back your license plate...

I have a 2007 LS460 and unfortunately there were 4 pre-drilled holes. 2 of which are 5/16" size and the other 2 are 4/16" (or 1/4"). I went to Pepboys and got me some universal black plastic retainers (Dorman, Part 454900BP, pack of 5) for around $3 and a touch-up paint (Dupli-Color, Color Code 1F7 Classic Silver Mica) for around $8. My car's color code is 1F2, which is Mercury Metallic but Dupli-Color doesn't carry that color so I went with 1F7 which matches pretty good. I applied 4 coats of paint to the top of the plastic retainers, I allowed about 15-30 minutes to dry in between each coat and then they're ready to be popped into the bumper holes. These plastic retainers work great because they fit all 4 of my bumper holes, which were slightly different in size. And that's it, you're done. You'll have to get used to seeing these 4 caps but now your car is much better looking than having a license plate. I'm very satisfied with this new look. You don't need to take it to the shop and have them fill and paint your bumper for over $300. This is quick and cheap for under $12! =). Hope this helps those that are looking to do this fix.

I shouldn't put this disclaimer because we're smart enough to know what we're doing...but here it is:
Be sure to check with your state law to see if it is legal or not. Perform and apply this DIY at your own risk.
