Negative, they are trunk carpet fastner pliars... they make super-fast "work" of the easy part, that way you dont get too frustraded ( scratching, stabing, breaking ) BEFORE you even get to the hard part.

Pic of the hard, of fun if you a mashocist part, two 10mm bolts holding the under headlight/upper bumper trim in place. You can kinda see the blury onr, then his buddy is a little higher. ( also 2 gide pins )

Cool, never used trunk carpet pliers

I hate getting to those bolts behind the fender liner. I found its easiest to take out the fender liners, then you can run your wiring more easily too.

I used that 10mm 1/4 in drive swivel-socket on a 10in ext. with the 1/4in. scewdriver/ratchet. Worked ok, didnt even have to turn the wheel ...

Stoped by AAP, 7$ in orange peanut bulbs later :
