Replace a Fog Light

My passenger-side stock fog light is burnt out on my 2010 JKU.

Questions:

1. Would this part be covered under my warranty?
2. If not, do I have to replace the entire light assembly, or can I just change out a bulb?
3. What part number do I need to look for?
4. Any idea how much it will cost me?

I've tried searching both this forum and google, but didn't get very clear answers. I just got a new RR XHD bumper and winch that I want to get installed, but I need to replace this fog light first so that I can verify that the fog lights are installed correctly when I switch out the bumper. Thanks for any help!

You can change the bulb, but it won't be covered. They are considered wear items.
The bulb number is PSX24W. Good luck finding them in stores, though. I've heard even Jeep dealers can't get them. You'll probably have to find them online, or just replace the housing all together for something better and readily available. There's some threads on that subject if you use the search function.

The bulbs is a result of wonderful government interference. They said for 2010, fog lights could only be so bright, so Philips designed this bulb and put a positive spin on it by calling it "Highly efficient and long lasting", which you just proved is BS.

They're junk.
Retrofit something in that works or put something on the bumper and use that original circuit to power or trip them.

The OE holes would be good for some LED marker lights or something. The old OE fogs were almost useful; the newer generation are just sad.

I found a guy online who runs a lighting store. He sells the bulbs for 36 each or 66 a pair. That's less than half of what the dealership is asking. Pm me for his info if you like.

I see some Nokya (I've used them for fogs before, they lasted at least a year before I traded the car in) 35w yellow bulbs listed as well. Might be a small upgrade. The factory wiring has been shown to hold 55w aftermarket lamps, 35w shouldn't be a problem.
