How do I replace the bulbs in my fog lights?

I want to replace the bulbs in my fogs lights, but I'm unsure how to install them.

I want to replace them with CCFL's or something a bit brighter than the stock lights. Any suggestions?

I just installed a Racingline STB, MMI's and grounding wires. I have Revotec Halo projectors, and now with the stock fog lights they just seem so weak paired with the Revotec's.

How hard is it to replace bulbs in the fog lights? and what socket bulb would fit into that socket without a major retrofit being required.

If you want to put in halos as you say you are looking at a major retrofit. If you are simply replacing the bulb, they are the same as the lows, H9's iirc
Take out the headlight to get at the fog bulb

Would these be brighter than the stock fog lights? .... I'm not sure what the stock fog lights are rate foe in term of candle light. They seem brighter, but I want some advice from others that have done it before. Is a 6000k rated LED light brighter than the stock fog bulbs???

they will be brighter than most halogens you throw in there...i know 55w was too much for the fog light housing with HID's (would cause melting of the plastic housing) but with an LED bulb you should be safe. If you haven't already thrown some HIDs in your lows i'd suggest doing both the lows and fogs with a set. a set of HID bulbs from DDMtuning.com is the same price as those LED's and are definitely 100% brighter than any halogen bulb out there.

what is required to swap out the low-beam bulbs? I have the Revotec Projector headlights, would it still fit in the same socket?

I can't find the HID's for my lows and fogs on that website, am I looking for a kit or a bulb?

its a kit...http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/DD...ast-35W-or-55W

theres the slim kit (link) and the raptor kit also on the site...personal preference on which to choose, both work. get 35w for fogs and either 35w or 55w for lows. H11 bulb size for fogs...not sure on those Revotecs for the low beam bulb size. should say on the back of the housing or in an owners manual. as long as you get the correct bulb size it should as easy as changing out any other bulb.
