2019 LX fog light replacement

I bought fog lights for my 2019 LX, I tried taking off the grill inserts but was unable to pull them away from the bumper. There are 2 screws holding them down on the top. I was able to replace install fog lights on my 2017 without any problems but this seems to be a little harder. Thanks in advance

If you are simply trying to change the bulbs, and I'm not certain about this because I've not tried it yet myself, I think you gain access the fog lights on the 2019 Sorento by pulling back the front lower portion of the front fender inner plastic liner. Turning the front wheels all the way left or right exposes the plastic pop retaining pins that have to be removed which then should allow the inner fender liner to be pulled away enough to gain access to the back of light fixture. As I said, this is just my guess.

Anyone else have a suggestion?

Anyway, good luck!

my question wasn't about replacing the light bulb. it about replacing the fog light assembly or in my case pulling off the "inserts". I had a 2017 which had 4 screws to remove them and the fell off these have 2 screws and it appears the tabs are on the bumper holding them down
