It supposedly can, but it's much easier to have the extra room with the fog lights out of the way.

I love the chrome on the Fog Lights, but hate the chrome trim under the windows on the SEL & Titanium.

You could always black it out with vinyl or something similar if you wanted. A few people have done that, or replaced them with the Fog Light mounts from the higher trims.

Yes, but do a search as myself and others have done this. They can be removed but best to take out the fog lamp as the clips are helped to hang on by the fog lamp. When you take them out you'll see what I mean.

Just take out the fog lights. It makes everything alot easier. The only issue is limited space but you can do it by hand.

I didn't keep track of time when I did it, but it took me maybe an hour?

Now, that includes stopping for pictures, taking notes, and fighting with one bezel.

One bezel was being stubborn and took probably 20 minutes to pop out. The other, took seconds. I don't know why it was putting up such a fight but it did.

Provided the bezels don't fight back like mine did, 30 minutes should be enough or even more than enough time.

I could be wrong, but aren't the fog light housings different on the Ti compared to the rest of them? Yes, I know they are black, but the non-Ti's don't have the chrome ring (bezel) do they? I thought non-Ti fog light housings were one piece total, instead of a housing with a separate bezel at the end (Ti).

Anyway, I was bored and took one of my bezel's off with a credit card. That's the only piece I'll be painting so I won't be removing the whole fog light assembly itself.

so you took the bezel off only?! skillz! At least now I know I can go that route, opposed to entire light removal. I believe standard fogs are all chrome but snap onto the car the exact same way.

From the front Dae. There's 2 or 3 clips spread equally apart that hold it in place.
you seriously have all the answers, mang!
I plan on permanently painting these a gloss black. I HATE the chrome.

thanks again St. Lewey!

super easy to pop out, I used a screwdriver on the top clip...first time I took them out I took the headlights out and reached down the bumper with a screwdriver, the 2nd time I just popped the screwdriver in between the bumper and top of the bezel and twisted them out..
