Lights on the front bumper

How in the world do they come out? I have tried everything but taking the bumper off to change the bulbs and I can't get them out

Re: Lights on the front bumper

I'd love to shake the hand of the genius that made changing a light bulb an all day event. At least I have an excuse when the wife asks why I'm sitting there with a 24-pack in front of my ride... "No, Dear... I'm not just sitting here drinking... I'm changing a light bulb !!"

I love my car, but damn. I put in a cold air intake in 30 minutes. You'd think changing a bulb would be a 5-minutes-or-less kind of thing.

Pulling the bumper takes about 15-20 minutes. I had mine off changes the lower valance and back on in about an hour. That was even shaving and cutting the valance cause the intercooler and piping.

Since Espo didn't give yall an update,

I sent my arm in through the gap between the fenderwell and the lower skidpan. Took like five minutes to change both bulbs in his stang. Had to do it by feal, but it was fairly easy. I did the passanger side in less time then it took him to put the radiator cover back on.
