Step 2: Remove the Bumper

a. Use flathead to pop open the 10 clips below the bumper and remove. There are more than 10 down there, but with a little investigating, it’s obvious which ones hold the bumper and which one’s don’t.
b. Unscrew the self-tapping screws in the wheel wells. (1 per wheel well)

What other available instructions don’t tell you is that there are 7 additional spots on each side of the top of the bumper that attach the bumper to the rest of the car. These will require a little patience and the flathead to unclip.

The outer most three (just outside the wheel well)
