How to change foglight bulbs

I just got some SilverStars for the fog's and i have no clue as to how im going to put them in. Do i have to unscrew the screw that are around the whole light? The screws are on SUPER tight and my electric drill wont even work. Any suggestions?

NO No No... Not necessary. On the back of the lights, there is access like your headlihgts. just need to pull back the fender liner and the stuff underneath. Once that is off it is a little spring hook that you push in and then slide off the hook. Then the light just comes straight out...
If you can wait a day I'll get undr my car and post some pics of what i am talking about.

Just remove the 3 screws holding the assembly on and the units come right out. No need to do all of that extra work.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

No sweat Jae, I used the FSM when doing mine. It was easy IMO.

i attempted to peel back the fender liner but i just found myself with a bunch of plastic push screws, dirty hands, and a loose fender liner.
