Driver's side is cake, very easy. Do that one first to orient you to how they are attached. The passenger side is a ***** if you leave the bumper on like I did. You can do it without removing the bumper, but it helps to have someone helping hand you stuff and pulling back on the wheel well plastics so you can slide your entire arm inside the bumper while lying on your back. I kept thinking I was playing Twister, and loosing. Took about 1 hr to do (5 min for drivers side, 55 min pass side).
my friend and i took off our bumpers. we did both cars in 50 minutes. it is very easy if you take the bumper off. quick and easy with 2 people working on the car. we jacked up the car and i took off my front tires.. he left his on. much easier to me with them off.
all you need to do is remove the front bumper, if you have never done it, expect about 30 minutes (being careful not do break anything), if you have done it before, it will take you less than 10 minutes to remove the bumper, and another minute or two to replace those reflectors.
No need to take the tire out, just turn the wheel to the right when taking out the bumper screws on the left side of the car so you have clearance, and vice versa.
you can do it without removing the front bumper, all you need to do is purchase this screw driver from sears that looks like an S for the passenger side. you will need to take off the splash guard though, do a search for clear marker install 20min. i have the link at home if you cant find it.
to remove the bumper you have to atleast partially remove the wheel wells. now on the drivers side, once the wheel well is out of the way, you have full access to the reflector, 2 screws and its out, new one in.
passenger side, go into the wheel well and you run straight into the windsheild washer resevour. so you remove the bumper screws in there, then the ones underneither, and above. basicly removing your bumper, but if you just remove half of it, you can get your hand in there to do what you need to.
yeah, it would have taken us less than 50 minutes for both cars, but we werent quite sure what we were doing on my car. when we got to his and immediately took off the bumper, we just flew right through.
initially, we tried to save time by not taking my buper off and squeezing inside with those 90 degree screwdrivers, but in the end, it was a lot easier for us to just take the bumper off. your experience may differ from ours.
