2019 Sonata 2.0T Limited DRL Question

Hello everyone. I am trying to figure out how the daytime running light leds come out of the housing. I have owned quite a few cars before hand that i always tinted the fog lights or Daytime running lights yellow. I think it looks better personally. I would like to do this for the new car as well however i cant seem to find any documentation on how to get the DRL housing out of the car.

I pretty sure they are like all the 2015-2017 LF and you have to remove the bumper cover and they are held in place with 2 screws and the hole thing comes off the back (inside) of the bumper cover. On the 2015-2017 it is a 20 minute job with a screwdriver and a 10mm socket.

You may be able to cheat it and just pull the pins on the inner fender and slide you hand behind the light that way. One time when I had my bumper cover off I forgot to plug in the DRL on the right side until I had it all together and I was able to pop the pins that hold the inner fenders to the bumper cover and get in behind it to plug it in.

If you do remove the bumper cover i like to order and have an extra set of the plastic psh pins because sometimes they just dont feel as secure the second time around and a bag from Hyundai of I think it is 10 for the bumper cover is less than $10, https://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-Hyundai...4AAOSwqjhcTs8A

Im about half tempted since im just going to spray them yellow to just tape off the lights and spray them from the front because it would be less hassle. i guess well see but deff dont want to remove my front bumper to get to them.

Well under an hour on and off the first time, very easy DIY, flat screwdriver to remove the plastic rivits, phillips screwdriver and 10mm socket for the other screws and pull infront of wheels under headlights to release

Im picking up a can of the yellow tint tomorrow... Its tempting to remove the whole front bumper but im reading now that the fog lights have another step to get the black grill part off it. ugh why so complicated lol.
