Front bumper

-under the hood, Unscrew the six screws that secure the grille.

-Unscrew the wheel to the left or right side, depending on which side of the bed will be dismantled.

-wheel arches Unscrew the screws that attach the fender liner to the bumper.

-move the wing flaps to the side and Unscrew the screws that attach the bumper to the wings (spun upwards).

-now for the hard part, you need to Unscrew the two nuts on each side that attach the bumper to wings near headlights. Will need a head 10 with an extension cord (about 30 cm) and a ratchet. Move the fender liner aside and Unscrew the nut. In some models depending on the engine under the wing can stand the washer reservoir or charcoal filter, which complicate access to the nuts.

-in the lowest part of the bumper along the entire length Unscrew the screws that protect the engine and the fender liner.

-pulls the bumper rails in the front (better to do it with a helper so as not to scratch the paint on the wings).

-you can now unplug the connectors from the fog lights (if any).

-remove connector from the PDC (if any).

- if there is paramilitary disconnect the hoses from the injectors and close them with stoppers that from the reservoir was leaking fluid.
