    I think it's a bumper off job, the fog lights should be held in position by some screws.

    Changing the fog lights to white bulbs would defeat the purpose. More white = less visibility in foggy conditions. Unless you want to use them as DRL I would leave them as they are.

    You can access the foglight from the hatch below. No need to remove the bumper.
    I agree with Chee's comments on the bulb though.

    Yellow lights are best for fog.
