    Guys I need help removing the bumper on my 98 tdi so I can replace the radiator.

    I have removed the undertray, the bolts near the grill, and the bolts in the wheel arch liner.
    The bumper will move about an inch but it will not come off, any chance of some details advice if there is a technique or something that I have missed.

    Thanks, Lewis

    sounds like you need to unclip it from the side mounts, just takes a firm tug, be brave

    Thanks guys I think I know where that clip is know, given up for today as it is so bloody hot, and I still had alot more to do before taking getting to the radiator. (and got sun burnt yesterday)

    You dont by chance have a guide for changing the rad aswell do you? NVM I found it in the same link.

    How long should a radiator take for an amater?

    OK so all I did not do was unclip it, but i could not see this clip.

    Do I just give the bumper a good tug pulling back?

    As when I was sliding it forwards it was fouling on the bracket, but I had also not unclips anything.
