Does anyone know what the easiest way to replace the front left light fixture would be. It's looking like I'm going to have take off the entire front spoiler, but I was hoping there was an easier way...

Yep its a pita. You have to take off the entire front bumper to get to the headlights.

Well, I figured as much...hopefully this won't take long...do you know where the bolts are that are holding it on besides the 8 on top?

You need to remove the plastic fender liner to access them. The bolts go through the front fenders too. I'm sure someone has pic up somewhere.

yea man, replacing the front light housing is a serious pain, only b/c u hafta take off the front. Its going to take some time. I got into a minor front end accident and had to take off the front bumper of my car, tha majority of tha time was spent jus findin tha bolts. I'm pretty sure theres 2 inside each fender but you hafta take off the walls inside your wheel well, and theres 8 on top and I think 3 or 4 under it.

*sigh* Do i need to take off the nose "skirt" or can I leave that connected to the nose? By skirt I mean the piece that connects to the nose that also holds the fog-lights in it.
