A cheap 1/4 in drive socket set I think from Walmart or PepBoys.

scada These hex heads are plastic and have rounded corners. Pretty crappy setup, the least of which the owners manual is incorrect. Maybe a PM to the Ford rep. I'll stop at lowes and pick up a socket. 1/2" is probably right. I'll post pics and check the drivers side.

jdetzel Might be a 12.5mm.
When I was removing my door speakers a 4mm was too small and a 5mm was too big. Found out there is such a thing as a 4.5mm.

1/2" is 12.7mm so that would be the logical choice. It is odd that there should be a mix of SAE and Metric hardware but I guess that's the way the US auto industry rolls...

scada You can on the passenger side. The driver side is difficult. I just looked and shook my head on the drivers side. On the passenger side I used a short extension. You go in at an angle under the support. I'll take pics when I get home.

Can you get to it with the headlamp in the car?

You can also reach down and get to the fog light bulbs with the housing out.
