Honda Prelude (bumper lamp) Fog replacement

Well, when i had purchased my 1999 Honda Prelude one of my turn signal bumper lamps was cracked. Naturally, i procrastinated on fixing it. But, as of today, here it is.
I paid $35 for for the set from eBay including shipping.

ratchet set.
star screw driver
flat head

Job time for a newb: 1 hr max with this play by play

My original lamp from when i bought the car.

I will be replacing that with these.

Take your flat head screw driver and pry out the bottom plastic cover. I used the current old lamps as my pry surface, don't use the bumper as you will dent it and maybe even chip the paint off.

Next part is what through me off. I couldn't see in well enough to realize there is a small screw in there. I fiddled for some time. Anyhow, grab your star screw driver and place it in through the front air dam air. The pictures below are from the left side.
It is the same procedure for both sides, just on the right side i had enough of trying to get it lose that i forgot to snap the pictures. LOL

To give you an idea of where and what you are removing, here is a few without the lens.

Once unscrewed you will need to detach the bulb assembly. This is quick and easy, just turn it. Ideally, if using these clear lenses you should replace the bulb with orange ones, i didn't however but like will in the near future. Make sure to test the signal lamps before re-fastening. Sure it takes a whole 30 seconds to do, but you will be happy you did.

Here is a close up of the right side completed. These are very nice looking and let the bulb shine strong. Again, i suggest going with an orange bulb.

Here is a quick shot of the old faded bumper lamps vs the new one (right side).

And the complete job. Hard to tell as the angle is off. But its complete and tested.
Looks great. Now to do the head lamps.

Anyhow, I hope this covers everything and is of some use to someone in the future.
