Fog light question

Hi one of the fog lights in my stock front bumper is out. I am wondering if I can just change the bulb in the fixture or do I need to order a whole new set of fog lights or just one replacement? Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

A bulb should do the trick. Check out your local automotive store for the appropriate bulb.

CHEERS!

What does it say on pg. 627 of your 2014 owner's manual?

Front Fog Lamp

1. Reach under the vehicle to access the back of the front
fog lamp.

2. Disconnect the wire harness connector from the front
fog lamp connector receptacle.

3. Firmly grasp the bulb by the two latch features and
squeeze them together to unlock the bulb from the
back of the front fog lamp housing.

4. Pull the bulb straight out from the keyed opening in
the housing and then connect the replacement bulb.

Does anyone know if there are any Bright White Halogen replacement bulbs for the OEM Fogs? Also, anyone know a bulb number? I have seen some say H-16 but I also looked it up on Part's Authority's Web Site and they say the bulb is a 2504.

No, there is no good upgrade bulb for the stock fog lights. You can upgrade the entire fixture to a brighter LED, but they are a couple of hundred of dollars.

This is the bulb that you need to replace the stock bulb.

I'm going to try short grounding wires at the mount points, and if that doesn't work they are coming off...

I've had no issues with mine. If you say they got wet I would take them out and make sure they are dry. Put your old bulbs in to make sure it eliminates the issue. Put the dry LED lights in to see if the issue continues. I had radio interference when I put the lifetime led lights in, but they were completely different lights.
