Take the bumper off. I know it sucks, but it's the easiest way to get to the fogs. I had Cold Weather Package, so I had washer fluid in the bumper for the headlights. This means there's a tank in the bumper in the way of one of the fogs, and hoses for all the fluid, so I had to be careful not to take the bumper too far from the car. Luckily there's plenty of room with the bumper just sitting in front. I put LED foglights in mine. Cheaper, and required no rewiring for HID ballasts. Only issue I came across -- and it never bothered me -- was on startup the computer would check the foglight status and blink them a bit.

Here's a pic.
