    If memory serves, I believe that you can twist the round lights out from the front of the bumper to replace the bulbs that way.

    They're fairly easy to replace. If memory serves, you reach WAAAAAY down into the front bumper (like elbow deep) and you can grab the plug, twist and remove. Bulb is a 197 iirc. Pushes right in, then you twist it back on and you're good to go.
