I can't find them..... Well maybe one but not the other. Do I need tiny hands or something to get up inside that tiny area? Or do I need to remove the interior paneling to get at the second one?

N/M I found the second one behind the carpeting, however the subwoofer is in the way so I can't get pliers on it. How do I remove the subwoofer?

edit: I was finally able to get that second nut off with the pliers.

my paint damage is minimal so a trip to the dealer isn't needed. I ended up filing down the light a bit, and backing out the stop a couple turns and I think it will do the trick.
