    I need info on on installing a set of Phillips Ultinon Extreme led H11/H8/H16 bulbs in my foglight housings. How do I get to the housing without removing the front bumper? The one pictorial that I found was for a 2014 4Runner, and showed the removal of the entire bumper

    You may be able to get to the fog lights from above by removing the headlight housings but it still requires removing some of the body clips if its anything like my Highlander. Take a look under the front bumper first--you may luck out and be able to access them from under there, but I doubt it...also buy some of those body clips as they inevitably break when you pull them out.

    Jaybird your in luck...well maybe in luck. What model do you have? I have the limited and I just replaced fog lights this past weekend. On the limited the fog lights are in plastic chrome casings . I also was about to take off the whole bumper...NOT NEEDED. First take off the 10mm bolts that hold your plastic wheel wells on. There should be about 6 around the whole tire area. Then underneath the front bumper you will see a couple more 10mm bolts. Once you take them off you can bend the plastic wheel wells back towards the shock towards. I used a bungie cord to hold it back. Once you pull that back you will see little silver clips with white plastic clips going threw them. Take a small flat head screwdriver and push out the white clips. There should be about 4 of them. Once these are out the whole fog light assembly will come right out. It took me a hour to monkey *uck around trying to find all of the bolts to take off the bumper. then i looked closer and did what i just told you. After that it took me about 30minutes to do both of them. I'll snag some pictures shortly and upload them. Now keep in mind this is on the limited, but i don't see Toyota change for light assemblies that much. If you see the little sliver clips with white clips going threw them...just pop them out.
