    For me, the easiest way was to remove the headlights. I then had easy access to the housings.

    I had that problem, and I just unbolted some of the black plastic panels under the front of the car and reached up and did it from underneath. took me a couple days to figure out how to get into there.

    I believe taking out the headlight is the fastest and easiest way. I tried many other ways and that seems to be the easiest and fastest overall. It only takes about 2 minutes a headlight to take out and then you have complete access to the running light. Just make sure you don't touch the bulbs and don't pull the headlight the wrong way when taking it out. They're mostly held in with two plastic clips on the back of the headlight and if you're not careful they'll break. Hope this helps!

    No... Only if you mess with the allignment screws that are behind the light. Just make sure that when you take them out you use the indents and marks the bolts left behind when you take them out... If you do that you should be fine.
