Has anyone changed the fog lights bulbs in a 2012 CRV? I am trying to install yellow HID bulbs, but the owner's manual isnt very descriptive and I dont see any easy access from underneath the bumber or directly through the engine bay.

I got it done! The instructions in the owner's manual are very misleading. You need to remove all of the retaining pins and the 10 mm bolt to be able to move the lower bumper cowling piece enough to access the fog light bulbs. Not just one retaining pin as stated in the manual. Once you get access you are working blind. Removing the oem bulb was easy enough, but seating the new HID bulb and locking it in place was very difficult, as was finding a spot to mount the balast. For some reasong the drivers side is much more difficult to access than the passenger side. Wear long sleaves, because your forearms will be scratched up from the sharp edges of the cowling pieces.
