I have a 2012 and found that all I needed to do was turn the wheel to the far right (for the left side) and far left (for the right side)...thereby not removing the wheels. Then needed to remove just the 3 lowest wheel liner Philips screws, allowing access to the area by pulling the liner away. Looking inside...the back of the lamp is visible and I could get my arm/hand easily to the connector and remove the lamp in the wired bracket after releasing it. Maybe the 2012 access is different than the 2012-11s...I don't know. Much easier than I thought it was going to be. 15 minutes each side.
