unscrew the black cap on the back.
unplug the wire attaching the black cap to the bulb, and to the ground.
squeeze the two metal pins together and lift them up.
swap bulb.

if you want to remove the glass, that's another story.

To remove the foglight unit, there is a hole beside the fog light(inner side). You put a thin screw driver in it. There is a little tab inside that you hit with the screwdriver that will release the entire glass unit. Once you pull out the unit, then follow what Justin stated above. Its hard because you have to fish around with the screw driver abit. Don't force it though cuz you could break the clip. Once it is loose, pull that part of the fog light out first because it slips out of the other side. I don't know if I helped or confused you. Its kinda hard to explain in words.

May want to try hot water, salt can get in their and make it super hard to unscrew when in it's solid form binding with the plastic threads.
