DIY: Front Bumper Removal

Since I've had mine off at least 10 times and was asked, here's a down and dirty on the front bumper removal. I did find a few pics I could use that I took a while back. If needed I'll post a more in depth version when I get back from Afghanistan.

Thanks for the great DIY!! Was able to remove the front bumper to replace a broken fog light assembly from road debris - piece of cake but took me a little longer first time through. Very nice job on the DIY 30yrVet!

Great Tutorial

@ 30yrVeteran, I just came across your PDF on front bumber removal. My nearside headlight was full of condensation when I bought the car back in April this year. I suspect the seller knew about the problem and the cost of fixing it and that's why he got rid of the car. I cleared the condensation simply by removing the rubber cover from the rear of the headlight unit but obviously by then the controller must have been full of water because the headlight failed during my recent trip to France, Spain and Italy. The bumper is noew off the car and I'm awaiting delivery of a replacemt controller so I can start driving the beast again .
Thanks a million for the PDF, couldn't have done it without your help.
