How difficult is it to change the headlight bulbs on a '15 GC?

I am thinking of swapping my stock headlight bulbs out for Silverstar Ultras. I saw a video on youtube that looked like there was a lot of work needed to get to the bulbs. Is this true or is there an easier way? I like the more white more clear lights but don't want to bother if it's a pain.

I probably watched the same video which is a good place to start.
Changing them was a PITA on one side of the car but much easier the second time around.

It was a pain, took me at least 45 minutes. Its all a matter of how to position your body so you can get your hand in the correct position when reaching through the fender liner access hole.

I did mine the same as the Youtube video EXCEPT for disconnecting the PCM. I just unhooked the PCM bracket from the fuse box shroud and moved it out of the way. You will need to contort your arms a little bit to get the proper leverage on the caps and bulbs themselves, other wise its very straight forward.

Watch the below video a few times and go for it! Its well worth doing the upgrade.
