Patrick H As stated, the plug is just up inside the front of the fender. As for the fasteners, they're regular right hand threads, so, righty tighty, lefty loosey

jp2611 FWIW...on my '04 TJ the wiring goes up about 6 to 8 inches from the bumper/ light..and there is a plug...just unplug it. Under the fender, part of the same wiring to headlights.

The lights are secured with conventional hardware on mine as well...which means "righty tighty/ lefty loosey" I know it is corny but it helps remember. as you look down on a bolt, (or up at a bolt) it turns to the left to loosen.

Removing stock fog lights

I busted both of my lights at some point and all I have now are the wires and the bracket. So I'm wanting to take them out completely. I have the 13mm socket and will be getting zip ties soon. The issue I'm having are two: 1) which way am I turning the bolt on the side of the bracket to get the bolt out. And 2) where under the hood do the wires connect to? I've read the bolt are in the hollow part of the bumper, but I've checked and it isn't there. My jeep is a 2000.

Thanx in advance
