I also ordered the tools that were mentioned in the post (total $25).
With the help of this post I'm positive that I would be able to change the fog light myself. The post has been very helpful and it is sincerely appreciated.
Before going through this post, I had taken the plastic grill out and put my iphone in to make a video of the assembly and to locate the screws. It was very helpful. I can't wait for the shipment to arrive so that I can fix it myself
Again a big thank you to "jashearer"
for this post and pictures. It is really helpful. The biggest motivation is that someone was able to do it without any instructions so why can't I after beautifully described step by step process.
Keep up the good work
Your very welcome. Re-visit and be sure to add anything if you think it would help someone else after you get done with yours.
I forgot to put a picture of a bottle of your favorite IPA (or Hefe since its German) next to the necessary tools
