    Changing to LED's for the Parking, DRL's and Fogs Today

    So waiting on the LED's to arrive this afternoon then plan on changing them. Seen some posts talking about how to change the top bulbs. But can't find anything about the easiest way to change the Fog Lights?? Any help would be great.
    Thanks

    Youll have direct access to fog bulbs from underneath...fairly simple to get too. Post some pics when youre done!!

    you won't see them but lay on your back and you'll feel them, very easy.

    Thanks, I was under there the other day to change out the tow hooks. Had to remove that plastic shelf thing on one side. Was just attached with think 4 small screws. So guessing I have to undo that on both sides to get to the fogs?

    nope, just lay on your back and reach up there. The area is open. Unplug the harness and twist the bulbs out.

    ----------

    You'll have a harder time getting room to remove the upper bulbs...then even better is the DRL's without removing the headlight.

    two bolts up top on the headlight and one that you have to go behind the splash guard in front of the tire.

    You can change every bulb in the front without taking the headlight or the fogs out of the vehicle. I've changed every light in the front of my escalade.. never removed headlight (just remove top 2 bolts and pull headlight forward for parking and DRL) and fogs are very easy to change as well, just lay on the ground and you can see it. For changing HID headlights, just remove air filter for passenger side and remove second battery plate for driver side. With a step ladder or step stool, you can easily see how the bulbs are installed.

    Got everything changed yesterday. Took all 3 bolts out for the headlights and looks like would break something to get them all the way out. I tried to take a pic with my phone last night but they are actually too bright for the camera. May try to use a digital camera tonight and see if its any better. I took 1 pic when I had one side already done to see the difference, but still too light outside to tell see the parking lights. Tried to upload the pic but looks like not working.

    Does anyone have an updated link for the top bulbs? The one from vleds.com that everyone has posted does not work anymore.

    Here are my led turn signals

    ----------

    I made a write up on the conversion to this switchback led for the turn signals but I see it has been removed for some reason. I had part numbers locations etc. its just gone!! Thats disappointing. I was never contacted about s**t.

    Anybody/moderator that sees this what's up with that???

    I dont remember removing your thread. What was the title of it and I'll dig a little.

    I like the switchback turn signals, how do you do it and what bulbs did you use and where do you get them?
    Thanks
