For a cracked foglight you got ripped off, as the bracket should have been unaffected by the crack. All you should have to do is pop the foglight out, disconnect it, plug the new one in, and pop it all back in place.

no need to take off the bumper

simple unscrew the bracket. pull out foggy and unplug. put in new foggy and plug it. screw back bracket in.

Yeah. Check your owners manual on how to change a bulb. I may be mistaken, but I am pretty sure it tells you how to pop the glass out. I may be wrong, but I think you could just replace it that way.

Just pop the foglight out one little clip holds it in. It'll be on the inside of the light toward the middle of the car.

hey, was it the driver or passenger side? I hit a racoon last night and I need a new bracket. You shouldn't need a new bracket, so yeah......
