I installed these this weekend and ended up going the route of removing the bumper. The bumper was very easy to remove. It took maybe 30-40 minutes to remove the bumper. Most time taken was being carefully not to break the retaining clips. The horns are a snap at this point only taking about 5 min each. Then putting the bumper back on is very quick, maybe 15 to 20 minutes. It just seemed like a lot less frustrating then trying to cram in to tiny spaces.

I dove back in and used the factory brackets this time, it made a huge difference in the sound compared to having the double bracket that I forgot to remove. I wonder why there are two brackets even included if you're supposed to remove one?

Passenger side was pretty easy to do from under the car, there is a little vented panel made of a felt material that I removed 2 clips on and pushed it up. A 3" extension on the ratchet made it actually easier than the drivers side, the hardest part was just figuring out where the heck the thing was located!

A little tip from previous horn installs, install the horn with the opening facing down. When water splashes into the horn it can then drain out, have had previous horns installed the other way that have failed me.
