hey all,
first time post and it's a 'help me please' post

I've got a 2012 swift sport and just tonight noticed that one of the lenses on the fog lights is broken, just wondering if anyone has replaced these (the actual module / lens, not the globe?)

Or is this a giant pain in the neck to do and easier to ask to have done next service, I've got basic tools and a little bit of mechanical know how

I'm in Melbourne (west subs) too if that helps with sourcing parts or somewhere who can service the car or replace this doodad for me

Not sure if they made it easier for your model in terms of access, but anything fog light related meant I had to take the front bumper off. It was relatively simple and also relatively a pain in the arse.

It meant removing about 3 mounting bolts under the bonnet, 3 or 4 under the car, one in each wheel well, and then popping out about a dozen plastic clips. The clips were the dumb part if you can't get under the car.

You don't need much knowhow though, just a willingness to get in there and a 10mm socket wrench (maybe a flathead screwdriver for the plastic pins)
