    So is there a write up ... or a thread on it? I haven't looked at it yet.. but if theres a write up.. I'd like to read it first..

    Either way the bumper is coming off.. I'd just like to know exactly what needs to be removed to take it off.... :noes:


    FMIC install hopefully this weekend.

    black plastic clips on the bottom of the bumper.
    take out fender well plastic
    two bolts connecting fender to bumper
    remove headlights
    slide a screwdriver under the bumper at the header panel to release it.

    Now its off.

    Make sure you get us pics of the process. Your pretty much building your own piping right?

    Actually, remove the 2 screws that hold the fender liners to the bumper, 2 10 or 11mm nuts that hold the bumper to the fender and the plastic clips on the bottom of the bumper. Just pull hard and it will come out from under the headlights.
