Depending on the year of manufacture and the type of body, the attachment points may differ slightly.

Front bumper

The front bumper can be removed without the radiator grill. The upper part of the bumper is connected to the radiator grill with latches (you need to pull the bumper forward and they will be released).

Dismantling option with radiator grill:

-open the hood.

-under the hood, take out the caps and remove the lining above the radiator grill.

-under the linings, Unscrew the four screws and take out the two pistons (twisted and inserted from top to bottom) that secure the radiator grill.

-Around the perimeter from the bottom side, Unscrew the screws (twisted from bottom to top) that secure the bottom of the bumper.

-wheel the wheels to the side.

-in the wheel arches, Unscrew three screws on each side that secure the wheel arch liners (front part).

-we move the wheel arch liners to the side and unscrew two screws on each side (twisted from bottom to top) that attach the corners of the bumper to the fenders (you need a knob with an extension cord).

-behind the wheel arch liners, remove the connectors from the extreme parking sensors.

-release the clips in the wings (pull the corners of the bumper down and towards ourselves).

-release the radiator grill from the clips.

-with an assistant, we pull the bumper forward (look behind the wires and hoses).

-disconnect the electrical connectors (on the right side of the bumper and behind the grille).

-disconnect the headlight washer hoses (if any).
