Pdux says the headlight will move forward about 4 inches, wouldnt that be enough?? I'm NOT disputing,
just want to know before I attack the bumper option.
There is a damn metal plate (attached to the frame of the car) that sits right in front of the angel eyes. If it wasn’t for this plate, replacement of angel eyes lights would be a piece of cake.

To acquire leverage to the angel eyes cap, you’ll have to unscrew the headlight assembly off the car and move it forward a few inches away from the metal plate. You will be able to reach this cap, but still you might not acquire proper leverage in order to turn it.

Bumper removal allows full access to the whole headlamp assembly without the metal plate being in the way at all. Makes sense?
