Question How to replace fog light bezel?

My son hit our fence while parking our 2009 Buick Enclave CXL and broke the chrome bumper trim. I replaced it today and while I was poking around I found a few other issues. One of the issues is a broken fog light bezel on the drivers side, and the light behind it goes inward if I push on it, unlike the passengers side.


How much work is it to replace the fog light bezel? Do I have to drop the whole bumper cover? Does anyone know of a how to for this?


Thanks!

I am thinking that you might, might, be able the access the bezel/housing much like you can for changing the light bulb, though the fender/wheel well liner. Start by turning the front of which ever tire inward, unscrew the fender liner retaining screws, peal back the fender liner, an look inside to see what you will need to do to remove it from behind. I'll check my pictures that I have that may lend more insight to how they are mounted in there.

Well, I didn't have any of my own pictures. But, I searched Ebay for 2009 Buick Enclave front lower bumper and found all sorts of pictures of the bezel housing. This does not look easy. As in, I think the lower bumper skin may have to be removed to change our the bezel alone. Unless there is an easy way to remove the entire mount from behind and thru the fender wheel liner as I described above.

That definitely looks like a pain to work with... I think I will hold off and pull the whole lower bumper cover off some day. It could use a sand and paint anyhow.
