Fog lights/driving lights

how easy is it to change the bulbs in the fog/driving lights of a 1999 impreza?. I want to make sure I got all the bases covered before I start the job.

damn not as easy as I hoped. Tried a screwdriver but none of them budged only went to round off the heads,looks like they have never been off. Will try with a stronger set or a ratchet set later.
