bolts on the front and sides.
turn signal cables(on plastic bumper)
screw in the fender lining that holds bumper
now pull it strait out.

it took us 5 minutes....its really easy to do. i think its all 10mm. maybe a 14 for the nut into the bumper shock.

okay, i'll give it a bash. the grill is removed but i couldnt see anything, do i need to go underneath the car ???
that could be a problem, if i try and jack it up the shell might fall apart

u dont need to lift the car. just get a flashlight, and look along the inside of the bumper. you will see the bolts that connect to it. and remember, when you go pull it off, if it wont slide out, you missed a bolt.
