Changing the fogs on a M6s

I just did a quick search through the forum but no luck. I'm trying to find out if anyone has changed the fogs on a M6s? I'm wondering how that plastic piece comes off on the inside so you can actually see the bulbs? I noticed the low-beam plastic piece just twists off, but the piece covering the fog seems attached to the piece that covers the high-beam, and hence it won't twist off. Any suggestions before I screw something up? :D

By the way, I'm changing low beams to:
Hella 88850 H1, 12v, 55w, OPTILUX Xenon White Bulb

...and the fog lights will be changed to:
78135Y H3 55W Yellow Star Replacement Bulb

As soon as the bulbs arrive and I install them I'll try and get some pics. I'm hoping this combo will give it a nice look.

there's a little door that snaps in at the top and is hinged at the bottom...just undo the snap at the top and the bulbs are right there...some say you dont have to remove the headlight from the car to change the bulbs (other than turn signals) but I'd like to hear how they do it. Out of everyone on the board, I've probably had my front bumper off and headlights out more than anyone...it's going on 7 times now.

I had my bumper out twice to change all my lights except the high beam. Like 1sexy6 said...there is a rectangle tab at the top of the box where you just press it down and it will unsnap. I find it easier to to take off the front bumper, then try to fit my hand in the compartment and install it blindly.
