How do you take off the kickout for fog lighr?

Hey ya'll.

My 2004 4x4 Ranger came with no fog lights. I want to put fog lights in where the kickouts for the fog lights are currently located.

I took a look the other day and it seems that they are actually molded to the bottom fender, and are not kickouts. Can they be taken out easily?

Can some share any install experieces dealing with ford fogs?

Thanks for your time.
Tim

There is no need to cut them out. Go on the back side and you will see a couple of speed nuts - remove them and simply unclip the filler piece.
