headlight assembly but bumper is molded with fender

Hi, as the title states.. is that even possible? I bought the car with bumper and fender molded together.. I want to change headlights because they're faded and it would cost more to put back to stock as apposed to adding new lights. Hope its possible but with major pain... thanks in advance

Re: headlight assembly but bumper is molded with fender

if you have the proper tools to lift the car up, you might be able to crawl under there and unbolt everything if your arms and hands are small enough. If not, I would cut where they molded it.

Pics?

nopppeeee. its physically impossible to take the headlights out without taking the bumper support off, and in order to take the support off, the bumper cover has to come off first.

so its safe to say, your screwed.
