    I just picked up a set of Morimoto XB led fog lights for my 18 suburban. I had a set on my last truck and they were great. Has anybody removed the factory housings? My last truck (2500 Denali) the shroud surrounding the light popped off and the lights just came straight out the front. I can’t seem to find any write ups on this. If not, I’ll take some pictures and document the process. Thanks in advance!

    I'm pretty tall and as I got in my Tahoe the other day, my knee bumped the button for all lights on truck. The Headlight, fog light and dimmer panel itself, is "pushed in". I tried to pull the the congregation back in towards me but, I have been failed.

    You might get more response to your problem if you start your own thread.

    Was pretty straight forward:

    * Turn wheel away from side you're working on
    * Remove five (I think lol) 7mm screws from inside wheel well liner
    * Remove two 10mm bolts and one plastic clip from underneath wheel well liner
    * Fog light assembly can be accessed by pulling liner back -- held in place by four 7mm screws; also, the factory harness is held in place on the assembly by a couple of plastic clips.
    * Have to remove 3 plastic clips from each assembly to get housing out. You will reuse one of the screw and clip combos, and just the clips for the other two (you'll see what I mean when you pull it apart). This step could have used a 2nd set of hands, but I was able to manage with just mine

    The far assembly screw was a bitch to get off/on, but not impossible. First side took me about 90 minutes; second size took about 20/25. Could easily do a job in under an hour now that I know what to do.
