nope. just take the bumper off. its easy. If you dont think you have the ability to, you shouldnt trust yourself heating up and opening headlights.

i dont know if its possiable, but i DO know that it is possible, yes.

you do have to partially remove it though- at least the top section.

just remove the black plastic "screws" just above the upper grille (under hood), and the screws (one on each side) in the wheel well holding the front bumper on. you have to pull outward (away from the car) on the bumper over by where u take the wheel well screws out.. then once thats loose- you can pry around he headlights, and at the upper grille. it will be akward to get the lights off, you need a wrench extension, and lots of patience. i was never able to put back the bottom screws on my headlights though. maybe better off taking the bumper all off. its only like 4 more screws anyway.

You can actlaly take the headlights off without completely removing the bumper. THe catch is you have to do one side at a time and have a nice long 10 inch extension for your ratchet to get the bottom bolt of the headlight.

Just remove the top plastic flat head clips. Remove the wheel well screw and pull the bumper off on that side only. Let the bumper hang just enough to get the bottom headlight bolt off.

it makes it 10 times easier to when you remove the bumper.
And it really is a 3-5min job to remove it.

removing the bumper is not too hard. Once you know what to do, it should only take 10 mins

Not to my knowledge. When I did mine, there were bolts hidden behind the bumper connecting it to the fender.

The reason I ask is because my front bumper isn't stock and it's more of a pain in the *** to take off then the stock. Thinking of selling my body kit and putting my stock bumpers back on for this reason it makes everything more difficult.. Thanks guys

I'll keep it sweet and simple: NO.

Use the DIY thread, its easy as fjck to take the bumper off. Plus, Im not sure if anybody else has mentioned, but you dont have to put all the bolts back in thus increased weight savings!!! Weight reduction kit stage 0.03!!!
