You don't have to remove the front bumper. You can remove a few screws of wheel well splash guard and then reach in and disconnect the fog light wiring harness. Twist the back of the bulb and remove the bulb.

OR

Open the hood and reach down to the back of the fog light housing, disconnect the fog light wiring harness and twist the back of the bulb.

do you need Inspector Gadget arms to reach that low from above the engine blunt? ;)

I did it through the hood, but I am 6'6". It was a stretch for me.

Replaced mine via wheel well. Grab a pair of pliers for leverage on turning the bulb housing if you cant turn it by hand, just use care and know which way to turn.
