John,

I moved the headlight assembly out of the way and then reached
down to the back of the foglight lense to do the job. Wasn't
too difficult. Another method is to semi-remove the plastic liner on
the leading edge of the front wheel well. My approach worked for
me. ( Folks with huge forearms, or arms shorter than 24" may need
to take the wheel-well approach )

Yep, I have had the h8 65 watt bulbs in 2 years now, and no melting. Much brighter than standard.
