[quote="Donkey"]Links and pics working for meWell done Duncho btw thats a easy to follow and gotta say why is this a main agent only job? it does seem although restricted access a DIY job[/QUOTE]
You know why, because manufacturer does not share their know-how... Luckily there are service manuals spread between people :)

FAQ: Front Fog lights

Just out of interest ill ring Nissan tomorrow and get workshop times and prices for replacement bulbsI accept everyone gotta earn a living but those pics you put up show literaly plastic clips holding the tray, something a novice could undertake with ease if the instructions re removing battery are followedBut thankfully guys like Duncho are exactly what a forum needs to point out hang on a second theres another way

Thank you Donkey for positive reaction on shared information . It is still possible to replace fog lamp bulbs from a car bottom after engine cover is removed, but access is a bit restricted. However, it's definitely not true what some dealership said to one of the forum members that bumper has to be removed when bulbs are about to be replaced

As mentioned it's just a "baker's dozen" of plastic clips, but I'm sure duncho can suggest "dos" and "dont's".

Probably best to check that you can get replacements in case you break any during removal!

Replaced mine with LED's this morning, literally 3 screws, manipulate the small plastic panel out of place then its access all the way!

Whole job took me 30 minutes to replace both sides including testing and jacking up the car :)
