License Plate Light Housing Replacement

My license plate lights on my 2012 Mustang keep getting water in them. The corners of the housings on both sides are cracked. I bought new housing with the lenses for both sides, but had a question.

Do you need to take the back bumper off to replace the housings? Or can you pop them off without? I didn't want to put too much pressure on anything and break them.

You don't have to take the bumper off to replace them. They are held in with attached plastic clips. If I recall you have to tilt them to get them out because the wire plug points towards the front of the car and overhangs the opening so you just can't drop it straight down.
