Question Fog Light Bulb Replacement

Just picked up a white 2019 Tucson Limited. Has anyone changed the fog light bulbs ? I want to put a whiter bulb to match the headlights. Is it accessed under the front bumper or removing the front wheel well section ?


Thanks

If it is the same as the 2018's......You just need to remove the bottom belly pan and reach up. I just put LED's in

It's easier to remove the front of the wheel well liner. All you need is a flathead screwdriver and just remove 3-4 plastic clips. I didn't even jack up my car or remove the tire. The right side of the car is a little tighter but I managed to do it, would have been easier if I was left handed. The left side is very roomy and easier if you're a right hand individual. It was a 10 minute install for me, quickest of all my bulb changes.

Great info. I too have a '19 Sport that has the LED headlights. The fogs look so out of place.

So the ones linked above are plug & play? Fit with no mods and match the LED headlight color temp?

Since I switched my lowbeams to a very bright HID kit, the fog lights became nearly useless and redundant. They pretty much only fill that little bit of gap between my front bumper and 2-3 feet in front of my car. I'm thinking of buying these, so I can switch back and forth between yellow and white. I think if you keep your fogs on all the time, they may be a problem because you'll constantly be switching them between the 4 modes, but if you're like me and only use them in rain and snow, then these might work well:

I replaced my H8 fog light bulbs with some T8-CSP LEDs for about $40 on eBay (the sort with braided flexible heatsinks, no fans). They actually have 2 rows of LEDs, one with white (~6500K color temperature) and one with yellow (~3000K) which are in the same spot as the filament on the halogen bulb. The yellow row is a little bit lower, so it doesn't light up the road as well as the white row.

Installation was pretty straightforward on the driver side (I opened the belly pan, not the wheel well liner - didn't know that was a possibility) - just remove the 6 10mm hex bolts and put the bulb in. On the passenger side, the windshield washer bottle makes it quite tricky especially if the heatsink is large, but a bit of finger stretching can help.

The yellow light looks cool but is kind of useless. The white light is OK, better than the stock but really can't say it helps that much except for filling some of the dark areas right in front of the car.

Yes, no modifications. Perfect color match
