OEM foglight replacement

My lens got cracked a couple of years ago on a road trip and and now the crack is now cracks so time to replace it and couldn't find a tutorial on youtube outside replacing the bulb.
Can you remove the molding and remove it from the front or go through the wheel well?

Gonna check prices and hope you can buy a single light from Ford.

i've replaced both my assemblies twice now...

you must take off the engine undercover, and also remove the radiator undercover piece. you will also need a star key of a certain size in order to unscrew the fog light assembly from the bumper cover. you will need a very short, like 3 inches or less with the bit on it short driver, in order to remove the driver side one fog assembly, or you will need a a swivel extension and wrench but it is still a very tight spot. the passenger side one is easier to remove and has a little more room for the top screw, but the bottom screw is tough, still not as tough as the one on the driver side however.
