How to Remove the Fog Light on a Dodge Neonby Alibaster Smith
The Dodge Neon was a compact front wheel drive car made by the Dodge division of Chrysler. Although production ended in 2005, the car went through two generations of redesigns. While some versions of the Neon came with fog lights, others did not. Fog lights on the Neon helps the driver to see in extremely low-light conditions, but not everyone likes them. If you want, you can remove the fog lights on your Dodge Neon.
Open the hood and remove the bolts holding the passenger side fog light in place.
Unplug the electrical connection running to the fog light and pull the light out of the engine bay.
Loosen the lug nuts on the driver's side wheel with a tire wrench. Turn them 45 degrees counterclockwise, but do not unseat the wheel from the hub.
Lift up the Neon using the front jack point behind the radiator.
Place a jack stand under each of the front pinch welds and lower the Neon onto the jack stands.
Remove the lug nuts and pull the wheel off.
Remove the screw bolts holding the wheel liner in place. You'll need to use a Torx wrench for this. The Torx wrench is a special type of star-shaped wrench used on Torx screw bolts.
Pull the wheel lining off and remove the bolts holding the vacuum box in place. Slide the box out of the way. The vacuum box is directly behind the fog light, and you must move this component in order to access the fog light assembly on the driver's side.
Remove the bolts holding the driver's side fog light in place.
Unplug the electrical connection running to the fog light and pull the fog light out.
