I have an 08, the 3 on the side look like there is a threaded rod through it but I don't understand how to grab ahold of it to unscrew it
Pal, I have an '08 too, try to remove at least four screws from the pan below the fogs, then pull off the two or three clips in back of the pan and front of the tire (not the ones in the fender lip). In that way I can reach the fogs from below without removing the plastic lock pins. The ballasts can be installed from above, if you have a thin arm and a lot of patience like me. Try it and let us know... Its not easy, but in that way I don't have to buy new plastic lock pins.

When I did my fogs, I removed 3 of the center pin plastic rivets, not the solid ones in the upper lip of the fender well, Then I removed the forward skid shield. It had about 10 hex head screws and dropped the entire front cover. This gave me complete access under the lower nose area and easy access to the fog lights.
I then used double sided 3M tape and mounted the ballasts to the lower frame section (like a little shelf) of the metal fender brace.
I was able to do all of this without jacking up the car or removing the wheels. Ive done this both on my car and a friends 06 Daytona.

thanks for the help guys. I was able to get the 3 push pins and one of the bottom ones out to then use my flashlight to hold the wheel well away from the front fender. This allowed me to get my hand in there and plug everything in, zip tie the wires and mount the 2 boxes on the 2 frame railes that run the lenght of the front end.
I was only able to do the driver side though because it got dark and I was doing this in the Michigan winter....tonight I tackle the passenger side!
