Default Two Automotive Lighting Questions

hey guys so i have two questions about to lighting in my car, i did a couples searches and didnt find an exact answer, if theres a thread about it, sorry, just direct me to it and close the thread, thanks

1)how do you change the glove compartment light? i realized my car didnt bring one when i purchased it, where is it located and how can i add one

2)do i have to take out the headlight to replace a fog light, i dont want to put an HID in there, just a regular white aftermarket bulb

any help will be appreciated, thanks

Glove box light is in the top of the glove box and only comes on with the park/head lights are on. Its a pain to get a grip on the bulb. Put on a latex glove to get a better grip.

6.5gen here. I don't have to remove my bumper to change out a fog light. I wouldn't know if you have to or not on the 6.0gen.

1) it's a little tricky to get to but not impossible. Start of by wearing some rubber gloves. Then remove your glovebox. You should have enough room to finagle the bulb out. If you wanted you could use pliers but be super careful not to squeeze too hard.

2) yes. Since the fog light is in the headlight housing, you will need to follow te correct steps to remove the headlight to change your fog lights.

You dont have to pull the headlight to change the fogs ive changed mine before with some bulbs that are supposed to look like hids but they still looked the same ugly yellowish color I think it has something to do with the projector lens so I just got 3000k hids waiting to install
