    there are 3 to take out the top along the top of the grille

    there are 4 equally spaced under the bumpers front edge, one of these is on a tab fixind it to the engine cover.

    take the wheels off and remove the wheel arch liners. Once they are out, there are 2 screws holding the bumper to the edge of the wing. these screw upwards into the wing. There is also one horizonatal under the indicator bulb. Its hard to see that one. Once thats done, do the same the other side and pull it off!

    If you was more local i'd have popped round to do it for you!..........in exchange for tea and custard creams!
