Red face littleguy needs fog lamp

My dang passenger side fog lamp bulb has gone out. Hate the dash telling me I have a bad bulb. The handbook says leave this one to the dealer. Yeah right, $100 bucks for a bulb.
Any body with guide to doing this wee little jobbee please, thank you, ta, merci.
By the way, Littleguy is my dogs name. Seriously.

Have you figured out the fog light puzzle? The whole lamp assembly can be pried forward, out of it's home and the bulb changed out. Not the easiest task. I think there are 3 latches around it. If your undertray happens to be missing, it is possible to get in there from underneath, and reach the bulb mount. It helps to have pretzel arms here. Bulbs are available on RockAuto I believe. Let me know if you need more info, I can look it up.

You can us plastic windscreen tools (or metal if you don't mind damaged paint).

If you have a set of ramps, you can access it from the back with the undertray in place.
Since writing that pdf, I've gained enough X300's and experience to know that car definitely has the undertray. Still have yet to lay eyes on the mythical left side brake cooling duct, though....except sketches in illustrated parts breakdowns.....
