    yeah. Take a socket wrench (same size as the other bolts IIRC), hold the socket end with 2 fingers and reach up between the light and the fender (from under the bumper).

    Use a 3rd finger to help feel around for the bolt and line up the wrench. It's a bitch to get too. I think you can look through the gap under the headlight to make sure you get the right bolt. I think there's a second one in the same area so you need to get the one going to the plastic part of the headlight.

    I had a little trouble on the driver side cause my arm wouldnt bend the same way? [lol] anyways, i guess just feel around. You can see/feel the bottom bolt then just go about an inch from that. Really i dont know any tips other then just feel around. I unbolted the bottom one thinking i was hot $#!T only to realize i had just wasted 15min. sad day.

    ALSO: once you get the light out, be careful pulling the main bulb out with that metal spring. i sapped the little plastic lip piece that holds the spring on and couldnt get it to glue back on. I ended up just electrical taping the rubber seal to the housing :(
