Ok, I actually didnt wanna post this question, its almost too embarrasing to ask but...

I have the bumper off, but I cant for the life of me figure out what to losen to get the foglights out of the bumper?

I see 2 at the front top on the foggy, which I cant get loose because a repaint of the car painted them over(if I need those off Im gonna need paintremover.)
Then O found 2 small bolts at the back 1 on each side, but they are almost impossible to get to.
and last 2 small ones on 1 side of the foggy.

But whcih do I need off to be able to take the whole assemply out? is there some bolts I missed somewhere?

PS: This is ofc. the USDM Bumper

you need to remove those 2 bolts at the front above the glass and then you can slide out the housing. then there are 3 bolts that hold the brakets on the bumper support.

If you take the cover off of the support you can remove the two screws with a small pair of vice grips. I

Hmm I doubt it.
The problem with crossheaded screws is they have a tendency to break if they are too tight, which is what has almost happened here.
I can still get the screwdriver to stick, but they are almost broken and they havent moved at all. Any more force and im sure it will destroy the crosshead.

Then use your vice grips on the BACK side of the bracket and pull the stubs out that way. I broke 3 out of 4 screws on 1947's fog lights and was able to easily remove them from the bracket from the back.
