EA82 Bumper removal

But if you removing the whole bumper, you need to get at it from inside the hood. Pretty sure you need to remove the battery to get in there, or, its just very close. On both sides of the body under the hood are two 17 or 19mm bolts..Do not make the mistake i made and break the nuts that are spot-welded onto the bumper off, it will cause a slightly more intense headache...It should be very simple...just unscrew four bolts from under the hood, and Voila!!

I wouldn't wish that experienmce on anyone, but I'm sure we've all done some smart stuff when it comes to fixing/screwing with cars...

super easy to get to. took me 20 mins with an AC system and I have never done it before. Slid right out, no trickery involved.

Sticky or put into the repair section! Definitely good information, glad I am not the only person that learned the hard way regarding the front bumper bolts.
And WOW did autozone upgrade their repair guides, thanks for that gem as well.

My new car is without AC and not rusty. It took me less than ten minutes to remove my front bumper. Did not remove the battery or anything. Just a short handled socket wrench and a short 14mm socket. No extender bits or anything and it slipped in front of all the wiring. For some reason I remembered the bolts being below that lip on the frame and closer to the valve covers. If you are having troubles removing your bumpers, just buy a car from a rust free area

Jewman, what did you use? Those lines were getting in the way every chance they could. I think there was a radiator hose or big group of wires as well. It was over a year ago, hence I don't remember details, but I am about to do it again.
6" extension, with a 14mm socket, my radiator was out so that might of helped but everything moved pretty easily.
