Is it absolutely nessesary to remove the bumper

I want to replace my driving lights. They got some water in them and the reflector is rusted. I have been under and around it, and cannot for the life of me figure out how to get them out without removing the bumper.

Thanks for the help

I took mine out multiple times just using a long screw driver between the bumper and bottom of the lights.

Mine is flush against the bottom of the light to the bumper, and the outsides of each one is rigth up against the bumper. and the top is up against the bumper. I should probably take a picture and put it on here.

if you can take the plastic skirt and support running across the frame fronts (near bumper mounts) you may be able to get in there.

the bumper is super simple to take off tho and would allow you to swear less and do a better job.

It only takes probably 10 minutes to get the bumper off.... If you don't have the crash brackets on the side you can have it off in only 2 minutes max...

I had the same problem my buddy said the water hole wasnt that deep So i had to get new 1s...I did my lights by taking the grill out and taking the lights apart inside the bumper it was very simple and i got my new lights from the junkyard.
