no, just take the protective cover off the car first (the one that needs to be removed in order to change the email) and then you have to remove the other cover thats right under the fog lights. its very easy shouldn't take long. no need to take the front end off
I swapped mine with HID's and did the ballast install and everything from underneath. Granted, I had the benefit of a lift, but if you can get some space under the front, there is plenty of room to reach in and change the bulbs.

JonW What HID kit did you end up going with on your fogs and do you experience any flickering when first ignited?
I have a XenonDepot kit. No flicker at all. Flicker is from one of two issues. Either the ballasts are crappy or the supply voltage circuit doesn't provide enough current. The solution to the first is to buy a quality kit and the solution to the second is to use a relay kit during installation. You wire the HID's straight to battery power and use the OEM light circuit to trigger the relay (not to power the HID's).

DO yourself a favor...don't swap with HID. Swap with LED bulbs. They are very bright, low power, look great and are FAR less likely to die in the next 10 years.
LED's look good and are cheap but that's about it. If you actually need your fog lights functional I would suggest an HID kit for sure. Since I don't need functional fog lights, I'll look into some LED's to match the headlights.
