Remove the plastic radiator covers, remove bolts holding nose fascia onto frame (near headlights) the grill will now move forward to gain access to the foglights.

Psst! Read your owners manual. It tells you how to do it.

Does this involve taking out a bunch of those little nylon/plastic rivets? It seems an awful lot on the new Mustangs is held together by the those nylon rivets. Do most of you get those out without tearing them up, or do you just keep a bunch of them on hand for replacement?

If you are upgrading your bulbs, that stupid black thing will fall off

He's right don't do it or you will be buying new foglights. If you take it in for warranty work and they think you used aftermarket bulbs they won't cover it. Several here in the forum will tell you the same thing. If you really really want to change them, almost everyone here will tell you to use Silverstars if you use any aftermarket bulb, all other bulbs will ruin the fog light reflector shroud (metal thingy) and the plastic chrome reflector. Trust me I have been there, and done it.A few haveruinedtheir lights and had to buy new ones since Fordfigured out that theyused non-oem bulbs. It will cost you about $200 to have this done if the dealer replaces them. The fog lights are very cheap crappy design and will melt very easily if your not sure what bulb to use. Here is additional info I found using the search feature;
