    All you need to take off the front bumper is a 10mm wrench and a flathead screwdriver.

    Step 1: First start by lifting up the car and putting it on jackstands. Once you're familiar with where all the bolts are you may not need to do that anymore. There are 5 black bolts on the bottom of the bumper that needs to be removed. The "center" bolt is actually more towards the driver side.


    Step 2: There are also 2 silver bolts that need to be removed, one on each side of the car.


    Step 3: Go to the wheelwell and remove the bolt connecting the fender underliner tot he bumper.


    Step 4: Pull out the fender liner a little and you'll see another bolt connecting the bumper to the car.


    Step 4: Now we go back up to the top of the bumper. There are two plastic plugs on each side of the car near the headlights. Use your flathead screwdriver here to pry the plugs off.


    Step 5: There is one bolt in the center of the bumper connecting it to the frame. Use the flathead again here.


    Step 6: Once all those bolts are removed, start removing the bumper from the sides first and slide out.
