I would take off the bumper to do it. Just remove the old bulb, put in the new one and plug it all up and your done. If they don't fire, the wires are mixed up. Remove the plug and plug it back in upside down into the oem harness.

No need to remove the bumper, just remove the fog light. 2 bolts per fog light and they come right out and give you all the room you need to work.

you can do either way...removing the bumper will make it easier to mount the ballast somewhere, but if you have small arms, you can do it thought the wheel well, just pull the plast back and mount it

How come the headlight ballast and bulb need to be in a totally sealed environment but the FOG ballast can be mounted anywhere inside the bumper?

^^^they make these ballasts water proof...not sure why they cant do it to the stock ones, I would assume since its in a sealed enviroment they dont need to, but who knows
