    So i've spent the last hour undoing all of the torx screws etc but it's refusing to budge, seems reluctant close to the headlights on both sides, anything i've missed or any tips?

    Been following this Fourtitude.com - DIY: front bumper removal and blackout grille install (think i've just answered my own Q by looking at number 10, Ipad wasn't clear at all) but i'm not sure on part 7, where is that torx screw exactly? The one marked as D?

    Cheers

    Right, i'm stuck on the lil plastic bits shown below (A&B), how do you remove them/which tool? So close!

    Remove the arrowed bolt, did you remove screws underneath the bumper as well

    If you mean the bolt the arrow's pointing too that's already off, it's the rubber things labelled a and b I'm struggling with, can't see how they come away. All screws taken out underneath, it's only sticking next to the lights so am pretty sure it's just those rubbery things.

    The two screws inside there are torx aswell.

    from memory you get at them from the side, I used a torx allen key which was easier to get at them.

    Have you taken the wheel lining off completely? or just bending it back with your hand?

    Just bent it back on both sides and undid any screws I saw underneath plus the bolt. So are the 2 rubbery screws torx? Having another go in a min.
