Daytime running light removal

Hi, has anybody ever had to change the led daytime running light located in the front bumper bar? If you have, how do you remove the fitting? There are no screws holding the light in place, so I am assuming that the fitting is pushed into place. therefore, is it a case of removing the bumper bar, or is there a quicker and easier way? Thanks

If memory serves there are three plastic tags and it just pops out.

I know @JBanks did his 171. Doubt it is much different on the 172.
