HELP REMOVE FRONT BUMPER

I am so frustrated I hav taken off all of the bolts, supposedly and there is no how-to forum for taking off the front bumper. If someone would list all the places where screws are that i have to unscrew that would be great.

the bolts on top in the middle, two big clips underneath, and then i believe there is two more on each side that the headlights cover up. One on each side can only be reached by un doing the front of the plastic fenderwell, the other can be reached by just taking the headlights off

two big clips are located directly underneath where the fog lights are(UNDER) the car, 5 10mm bolts across the front inner top lip, 2 10mm bolts where the fenders and front bumper meet and 1 10mm bolt where the bumper meets the inner wheel well. exact placement of these bolts is pretty much common sence if you can take the headlights out you can take the bumper off.

Your kidding right?

How many bolts have you taken off?

You can't miss the clips underneath the bumper, theyre big and purple. Take the headlights off of the car and search for the studs you can't miss them, just look at it carefully. Unscrew the fenderwell (the plastic part where the wheels are) and look where the bumper meets the fender, theres a bolt right there on each side.

You might want to post a how-to in the Garage section usmcasa, that would help people out. E-rep.

I dunno if this is how the bumper usually comes, but there were little clips attached to the radiator guard thing as well, they were hidden underneath plastic so i ended up jus sawing off those clips, worked fine

may have been removed before, while you got it off check for exposed metal or overspray(signs it has been in an accident). i bought mine used and was told it was never wrecked, even got a clean carfax on it. took it apart and was like wtf... serious frontend damage, yet again another time i'm glad i work at a bodyshop

ya im pretty sure the same thing happened to me. I bought my car used as well, clean carfax and everything, but there is some paintover places on the left side, in the vents especially. Also the two bolts on the bottom werent even there, the metal clamps underneath the foglights are all bent and contorted; which may have been caused by bottoming out, but you never know.

Do not cut them off. Pinch the two plastic pieces in the center of the clip together and pull down on the whole thing.
