Default Best way to replace '04 SE fog light bulbs?

Group,

Which is the best/easiest way to replace burned out bulbs in the fog lights of an '04 Bonneville SE? I've got a couple of dead bulbs I need to replace.

It is easier/better to open the hood, remove the headlamp assemblies from the car, and work from the top, down to reach the fog lights? Or to ramp the front wheels and remove the plastic under-carriage cover from the bumper, to reach up?

Thanks!

Does your car have the front bumper as the 00+ SSEi'*? I can't remember. If so, I replaced mine from the bottom.

The '04 Bonneville SE front bumper cover looks like this (the fog lights are widely spaced):

You should be able to just drop the air dam off the bottom and access them. Removing the air dam just requires popping the plastic round washer/push pin things off.

Thanks, Brian. That'* what I was thinking too, after taking a quick look at things.

If it cools off in the next few hours, I'll crawl underneath to get it done before the forecasted rain comes. Otherwise, it'll be a couple days 'till the weather dries out again. :/

Thanks again!
