e70 LCI front bumper removal

Does anyone have detailed instructions/pictures of how to remove the entire front bumper piece? Mine is a LCI model (need top know where the various fasteners and clips are that hold the front bumper to the body).

And yes, I did a search but was unable to come up with enough details ...

I successfully removed the rear bumper apron to install an OE trailer hitch and assume that some of the assembly is similar, but the questions is: where do I start? are there any fasteners behind the inner wheel well liner?

I want to remove the front bumper piece to do some repairs.

Thanx.

Maybe the BMW TIS can help?

Unfortunately it won't let me link straight to the Bumper Removal...
  • Click Repair Manual
  • Select e70
  • Select Trim
  • Select whatever Bumper

Et voila

That document appears to be for the pre-LCI E70.
