How do I Change Fog Light Bulbs on 06 SS

There is nothing in the owner's manual and I can't find anything searching this site on how to change the bulbs on my stock SS fog lights. Do you have to pull out part of the wheel well to get to it or is it that hex screw at the top of the fog light. Turning the hex screw only seemed to adjust the aim of the fog light.

One other question.....do projectors still use the stock 9007 headlight bulbs or do they use a different size bulb?

Sorry for the questions. I just bought a used 2006 SS with halo projectors and the halo's on the driverside are not working and I'm thinking about buying replacement headlight bulbs while I'm at it so I have new headlight/fog light bulbs all at the same time.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Most people just remove the headlights and they are right there when you look down. I am not sure on the SC models, but on the 2.2l if you still have the factory intake the air box is in the way if I remember correctly. It is very easy, should only take you about 15-20 mintues.
