I honestly just snapped the entire assembly off. Those top bolts were a pain in the ass. Perfect place to mount pods. Didn't expect it but didn't have to drill any holes or anything. Just unplugged my stock fogs, cut the connector off and soldered the new wires to them so now I can turn them on with my fog button.

Due to extreme frustration that came with trying to unbolt a fog light assembly, I ended up breaking the plastic off that the bolts were connected to. There was no way I could fit my hands in there. Way to small of a space.

I found that if I pop the grill and put a 10 inch extension on a socket, I can get down from above the bumper. Had to buy some replacement bolts and speed nuts from Home depot. Originals were so rusted and had hardly any thread left. Having a granddaughter standing by to hold them up made it easier too.
