how to take front bumper off



Undo the two bolts under the car which hold the bumper bit to the subframe.
There two bolt facing upwards to get to then you need to pull the ach liner back (I personaly first time jack the car up and remove both wheels and arch liner only held in witha few push in clips.) The bolts are about 8 inches forwards of the bumper arch line rand face upwards

Then there two bolts that hold the grill on under the bonnet.

Then you need to pull the bumper outwards from each side a bit and it comes away.

How hard is it to do it in just street light :) I've F**KED my light bulb out and cant get it back in unless I remove the bumper

You can chnage the light bulb without removing the bumper just reach behing the ligt to pull the bulb.

Anyone know if the bumper has to come off to replace the headlight washers or another easier way to do it?

You cna get to it fron under the car and from the arch liner but for easy take the bumper off doesn't take long.

You can also just undo one side of the bumper and not take the whole thing off. I did it the other weekend and aside from snapping the the plastic bolts on the top of the grill (grrrrrrrr) there was no problem.
