Now you may wondering how can these OEM Toyota Vios’s fog light get damage in 4 years duration? My Toyota Vios is ‘J’ spec that wasn’t come with fog light feature.

I bought this aftermarket Toyota Vios’s fog light, made from Taiwan at auto accessories shop. The finishing and quality of the product wasn’t great and don’t last as long as OEM products. Not only that, previously I had equipped the fog light with HID bulb, and the intense heat produced from the HID bulb caused the glass to broken.

Currently, I am going to DIY to replace the broken Toyota Vios’s fog light. I’ve bought a set of Toyota Vios Fog Light from lelong.com.my with that cost me RM145:

Next, we are going to dissemble the Toyota Vios front bumper in order to replace the Toyota Vios’s fog light.

Step by step to dissemble the Toyota Vios Front Bumper and replace the fog light

  1. Remove the screws from both side of the Toyota Vios fender. We had difficulty to access to the screws part due to tire is blocking the clearance,  hence we need to align the tire to the right position to get the clearance of the screwing point as below image:

  2. The next step is open the car hood, and remove the pins at the top of the front bumper. For my case, I lost my pins, that why I am using cable ties to secure my front bumper to the car body. I need to cut the cable ties out:
