     The first thing you have to do is to remove the bolts and the clips that hold the bumper. There are 13 holding pieces on this car: two Phillips screws (marked with the yellow arrow in the next image) located in the front of the wheels, eight 10 mm bolts (see the red arrows below) and three plastic clips on the middle of the bumper (marked next in blue arrows). We indicated you in the next image, only the fasteners on the right side of the front bumper, but you will find them, obviously, on both sides.


     After you remove all the screws and clips, you can take the piece out, by pulling from the extremities (near the wheels). If you have functional (connected) fog lights, the bumper will not come out until you disconnect the harnesses (indicated below).
