Yes removal of the rear bumper is required to install these!
Any how-to videos on this yet?
The hubby wanted me to ask if there was a how-to video so he can see if he wanted to take on the task of installing them.

I have no clue on how to make a video and post it on-line. We can do pictures and "paint" adds. That good enough?
Not so difficult!

SOME GOOD NEWS fellow "Opti-nuts"!:D

You DO NOT have to take the rear bumper cover off to remove the lower cover that holds these lights!!!

All you have to do is remove 3 plastic retainers from the bottom, remove 2 screws from each side, then work the 2 lower tabs loose on each side (these are the largest tabs on the lower cover), and then carefully pull out the 8 smaller tabs along the top of the lower cover (pictures to follow as we take them...). LX and EX models will also have to remove 2 plastic retainers from the bottom cover on the left side - SX and SXL models do not have this cover -- they have a muffler instead...

Once you remove the lower cover you can take out the reflectors and replace them with the repeaters.

Install is easy...just reinstall the 8 tabs along the top, reinstall the 2 tabs on each side, put the 2 screws in on each side, and then reinstall the 3 plastic retainers on the bottom.

Wiring the lights is another subject...
