You mean for the fog lights right? About 15 min per side. A lot of people took off their bumpers when changing them. I just took off the wheel well liner and did it from there. The passenger side is a little harder to do cause the space is a little tighter. But it's definetly not hard at all! thumbsup

yeah you dont even have to take off the front bumper,just move the wheel well plastic far enough and you will have enough room. I also have skinny hands and arms.

it was easier for me to take the bumper off cause then you don't have to bend the plastic and all.

I did the whole trying to change them in the wheel well but realyl taking off the front bumper took liek 10 min. I was nervious at 1st but really it was easy and fast. Much less effort to take off bumper then reacing inside wheel well. Deff go piaa, they are the best. If you can afford HID's get them
