    Is this an easy job? If so, where are the clips/screws etc located?

    I hit my bumper on a pot hole coming out of a pub car park late at night, and it seems like one side has a much bigger panel gap and underneath seems a bit lower than before.

    THanks in advance. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Front?

    There are two big screws about 3ft apart on the very bottom. Remove them, then remove two small self tappers at the most ouside edges of the bumper near the front wheels. There are also three or four self tappers in the arch lining which are obvious to see. remove them all.

    Now pop the bonnet, there are four plastic plugs. Get a small screw driver and push out the centres (They will become lost down the back of the bumper).

    Now all the fixings are out, you have to pull/lever at the bumper near the arch sections. Just ease the sides out over the inner arch linings. Free one side then the other and it will now literally slide forward with ease. Dont pull too hard as you may disconnect your fogs of headlight washers. Use a rug to set it down.
