Help with Halogen to LED fog light install on an E60

I have an 2008 535xi. I upgraded my halogen angel eyes to LED bc one went out, and decided to do the same with my halogen fog lights. I installed the the passenger side fog light with some difficulty by removing the headlight and also going through the wheel well. Going through the top alone ,where the headlight was, was next to impossible with the tight space. I found going through both spaces helped. The problem I am running into is on the driver side. There is a windshield wiper fluid reservoir behind the fog light, which makes it it impossible to access from the wheel well. I have search everywhere on various forums and the web with no success. I can't see how I can install the LED fog light through the top alone. There is just too much to install and secure and little room to work. Also, i don't think I am skilled enough to remove the bumper. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bumper removal is not that hard. It will help to have another set of hands available to take the bumper off and put back on so you don't scratch your headlights or fenders.

Not sure if there are videos for the E60s but try youtubing the process. It's not that bad and you'll have MUCH more space to work with.
