Is it necessary to remove the front surround and then the housing to change a bulb or are the back of the lights easier to get to when the headlight is removed? I'm not that keen to be lying about the ground in this weather! :)

Easiest just to remove the front panels. Gently prize open a gap with a screwdriver (or something else flat) and just give them a good pull.

Changed both my fog lights in 10 minutes.

When I had a headlight out a while back I had a quick look down to the foglight but didn't know if the bulb would come out from this angle. It certainly beats being on hands and knees.
