Question about replacing running lights with LEDs

How do you go about getting to the bulb in the running lights? Do you have to remove the entire front fascia?

No you can reach the lights by going through the wheel wells.

The rear ones are a bit more tricky.

You didn't remove the rear fascia just to get the sidemarker light, did you?
They just pop out by reaching up...

Just curious...

I did, it's simple really. There are only four screws in the wheel well that you have to remove and then it pops right off. I tried reaching up to get at it first but didn't have any luck.

Interesting...I just laid down, with the car on the ground, and popped out the rear ones. Very simple...

However, whatever works!

How hard is it to replace the foglights also? I have the RS package so mine are only used for daytime running lights, but I had the yellowish color. I want them more white like the HIDs? Are they hard to get at?

These are the showstopper concept led side markers... Aac makes them also, but I'd go with showstoppers.

Those are AAC. On the Showstoppers set, the LED strip run along the top of the sidemarkers. AAC sidemarkers do not flow as nicely, but are cheaper

Ah, my bad... You're right. I should know this, I own those markers.
