On the passenger side, we removed the air filter box to gain access to the light compartment. This took significantly less time than the driver's side.

Good luck. It's not easy.
Spent considerable time and sweat changing the driver side bulb (also snapping part of the wire harness).

I took a look at the passenger side and it looked a bit complicated to remove the filter box. Can you provide any comment, advice or instruction on how best to do this?

Accessing it via the wheel well or removing the bumper still did not appear to provide a clear access. I don't want to break another wire hareness.
