    Bumber removal

    Ok... guys first off all... a merry christmas to everyone.

    I need a quick guide on how to remove the front bumper of my sportback (single frame).

    I know the basics, just need the "hidden tricks"... sensor, cables, (water ejectors), foglams, location of screews... dont want to brake anything.

    Anyone with a quick post?

    Thanks guys

    As Boydie says, Did you PM Dave? I dont know what more he can do to help you! The ELSAWIN diagrams and instructions are excellent.

    If you know 'the basics' then its very easy, You may just need to unplug the fog-lights and headlamp washer pipes (If your car has these fitted)

    I did pm him yesterday but no luck yet.

    I do know the basics...did my golf IV many times. Yesterday i took out all the "basic screws" like i used to in the golf...but the bumper would not twitch... drove me nuts so i need a guide. My basic problem is that one of the headlamps seems a little loose (moves and causes beem to vibrate) and i want to tighten it.

    Help?

    The part of my headlamp that is loose, is the corner that is on the outside of the car (indicator side).


    Any ideas?

    no you dont need to remove the bumper to tighten the screws but you will need a long screwdriver to get to the bottom one

    FIXED!!

    no bumper removal... just loosened the headlamp completely, then tightened over in order (bottom screw first)... headlamp is no nice and tight, hope it stays that way.

    Thanks y'all
