    Check this, this is done by a forum member for his UK punto... Except for the additional fog lamp cover in models abroad, other things are same I guess.

    You are right. This should help anybody trying to replace the bulb or the whole fog lamp. One tip - chock the wheels and jack up the front side where you are replacing the bulb. That will make it little easier to work. When you jack up no need to say you should take all precautions of working under a jacked up vehicle!

    The procedure from the above video is exactly the same for removal of whole fog lamp. Just the connector is little different from inside.

    Yes,usage of jack is essential at least for the first time.

    3 Torx screws T30 (one at the front and two at the bottom of the bumper)
    The socket at the back should be removed first and then slide the fog lamp out ( Need to get under the car to see & remove the socket for the first time)
    Once the fog lamp is pulled out,swapping bulbs is simple.

    Had H4 X-treme Vision for quite some time and thought of replacing the same for fogs as well.
    Replaced OE fog bulbs with Philips X-treme Vision H1.

    Philips XVs have slightly better light throw when compared to OE.
