Did ya check your owner's manual? Look for the "Bulb Chart" in the table of contents.

The bulbs that go in the 2004 WRX Projector fogs are H3's. Just like the headlights, they are somewhat of a pain to install.... Expecially if you have aftermarket bulbs that keep burning out .. haha...

Since we're on the topic of bulbs, the headlights take H1 if you didn't already know.

Oh yeah ... To replace them, you can do it two ways .. both of them require you to remove that plastic cover on each front corner of the car, right under the bumper. Not the big plastic skidplate that covers the underside of your engine.

It's kind of hard to explain without pictures, but you have to pull the plastic cover down after taking off the many little clips on the underside. The little mudguard or whatever with the letters "LH" and "RH" will have three plastic clips on them, they need to come off too. After that, you should be able to pull the cover down, and if you stick your head underneath, you will be able to see the back of the foglight assembly. From here, you can choose to replace the bulbs from whatever position you want, from the back, or you can unscrew the foglights themselves from underneath. There should be 2 12mm screws underneath. You can take the front foglight covers off by popping them off / prying them off carefully with a screwdriver. After getting the covers off, you can pull/wiggle the whole foglight out, since you already unbolted them from underneath.

You might have trouble with a lot of those plastic clips, as they tend to get jammed with crud and rocks, and they won't want to come out. But otherwise you can't really break anything, its pretty straightforward.

Good Luck, and sorry if my explanantion was not textbook-quality

thanks for the info guys, i think im gonna try to do it this week when i have time. the reason why i wanna change the bulb is because i installed 5300 HIDs and the fog lights are yellow. i figured i would just go buy some after market super white bulbs to install into the foglights to match. ill try it out and keep u guys updated.
