Default Replacing Front Bulbs

Got my package in today from autoillumination, plan on replacing all bulbs in the head lights and the cornering bumper lights.

ive read a few posts from people that think removing the bumper is better and some say not worth it. can I get some first hand experience here or any tricks to keep in mind?

IMO it's easier to take the bumper off.

It's really not that bad. I've had my bumper off 10 times or so.

Yeah it takes a little time to get the bumper off but then you have so much more room to work with to replace the bulbs.

Emergency.

Driving around tonight my right turn signal is blinking rapidly and the left is normal.

My fogs aren't working.

I didn't touch the rears. That's the thing. All I changed were the 3 bulbs in the head light and the 2 cornering lights.

My package came with 2 red harnesses. I have no idea what there for.

Anyone feel like texting me? 561-876-5966.
