E83 Fog Light Bulb replacement?

I found a DIY and changed out my headlight bulbs to some VisionPlus "white" ones (very nice btw)... I couldn't get the high beam case open so I didn't replace those bulbs just yet.... BUT, anyway... now my fog lights look yellow so I want to replace them with something a little whiter to match the low bulbs..

Is there a DIY for those? Embarassingly enough, I haven't even looked at the fixture before posting this.

It's a piece of cake--just take a phillips head and remove the one screw from the inside middle quadrant of the lens mount. The entire assembly comes right out--unplug the back of the bulb, replace it, re-plug and then seat the assembly back into the mount--replace screw. Done. If it takes you more than 4 minutes per side, you should not own any tools. Instructions are also in your owner's manual----

To get to the screw, does the front clear plastic cover come off or slide out?

Or does the bulb/housing need to be accessed from inside the hood?
