Believe it or not, the easiest thing to do is remove the front bumper. That way you can remove the headlight housing and get easy access to the fog lights. It only takes 10 minutes or so to remove the bumper and another 5 per headlight housing. If you do it this way you won't have to worry about working in a cramped environment, plus you'll be able to aim the lights MUCH easier as well.

in order to replace fog light bulb, you will have to take out the air box. After you take the box out, you'll see a plastic cover that needs to be opened. Once you do that you can pull out the old bulb and put the new one in. Once you done, put the cover and air box back.
on the passenger side just take the identical plastic cover off and replace the bulb.

There really is no room but I still don't see the advantage of removing the front bumper. The hardest part was the passenger side with the windshield washer fluid reservoir.

Took me about ~30min first time, swapping low beams and fog lights

Exclamation

yeha, thats where it gets little hard, but if u take the wires clips and move the wires on the side its easier, just use long pliers to reach in there. for the driver side i didnt take the air filter box out i just kept pushed against the windshield and got some open space but i used long pliers to do the job. took me about 30 min to both sides. and didnt have to remove the bumper.

In the 6x is more difficult to replace the bulbs in the headlamps. In the 6i is very easy specially if you have a small hands, you dont have to remove the bumper.
