replacing my fog lamps

Hey guys I just got a 2008 compass and I noticed that the fog lights below my headlights do not turn on. It looks like it might be a big job to replace them and I have no idea how. So basically I'm asking if anyone has step by step instructions for me or some diagrams or something. I am hoping I dont have to take the whole front off but it looks like that might be how.

You just have to remove all the "torx" screws that hold the plastic thing to the bumper cover. After, there is 3 hexagonal screws on the rear of this plastic thing.

Well first of all. If both are not coming on it extremely unlikely that the bulbs are gone. It likely and electrical problem.

I would look at it from an electrical problem first. It would be far far less labour intensive.

Check fuse for those, relay, and if its still not resolved the switch in the actuator arm could be at fault.

I you really think the bulbs gone south you only need to reach way under and remove the socket and put a new bulb in the one side and test it like that.
