How to Remove Bumper 03-07 Honda Accord

Share on:

Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

Hi, everyone. Sue here from 1A Auto, and today on our '07 Honda Accord we have in the shop, we're gonna show you how to remove the front bumper. You need any parts for your car, click on the link below and head on over to 1AAunto.com.

The hood release is on the driver side, left side kick panel, down by the driver's left foot. It's clearly marked with a hood on it. Pull the cable. The safety latch, release latch, is right here in the center, right above the H symbol. Then you have your hood rod, it goes right into the indicator, you see the arrow pointing down to that square. You prop it in there.

I'm going to release the body clips on the shroud area, on the front of the nose of the engine. I have these little pliers that have pinchers on them, and they go on each side, and you could pull that body clip right out. I'm gonna remove all of them; last body clip. Now, we have two Phillips plastic body style clips. I just use a small pocket screwdriver and just turn it slowly. The threads on these, cause they're plastic on plastic, there's no method to it. Now, we can grab our cover. Lift it up.

I raised the support of my vehicle, so I could get underneath and take down the splash guard, the front here, where it attaches to the front plastic bumper. Same procedure as up on top with these clips. Now, there's supposed to be some metal bolt for these tins, but the car's gone through some ages of salt and sand, so they're all broken off.

I lowered the vehicle, mid range for me, so that I can grab a Phillips screwdriver, and you'll see the actual Phillips head right here, attaching that fender well. I'm gonna take this out and repeat the process on the other side.

If you follow the fender line over into the middle, fender to plastic bumper. Right in here, there are three body clips that just slide the plastic and lock it in. You're gonna grab in your fender well and give it a good pull. See the indents. Then, you're gonna follow around to the other side. Do the same thing. Then, we have two bolts, right here, in he same spot, on the other side, the passenger side. 10 millimeter socket. Now, we're gonna take those off.

Now, we have the two bolts out. We should be able to grab this plastic fender well, and just pull it right out.

Whenever removing a front bumper, this styrofoam bumper cover is factory, and they usually just use masking tape, as you can see. That's straight from the factory. Weather has worn our tape here, so I'm just gonna quickly tape this so it's sturdy again, and it's easier for us to work with.

Now, we're gonna install the front bumper cover. Make sure you get a good handle on it. Bring that right in. Gonna line up the top first. You see these tabs, right here. That tab goes right inside that tab on that middle bumper. Right on both sides. Get one side, then you come over and do the other side. Line everything up. You just give it a good push. Make sure you put your fender skirt up inside before you push the final tab in. This side went in nice and smooth.

Before I put any plastic clips in, or the Phillips heads on the fender well, I'm gonna put in the actual mounting bolts up here. Line this all up, and get it nice and secure before I do that. This side's lined up. Put my 10 millimeter socket's head bolt in. Just snugging it. Now, I'm gonna go to the other side and see what is going on. See if I can get this to line up. There we go. Now, we're ready to snug these down.

We're gonna raise it up, put the two fender screws in, then bring it all the way up. I'm gonna take the mounting Phillips screw, bring it right in there, snug that down. Repeat the process on the other side. Now, this fender skirt goes up underneath the front bumper cover, so there's enough flexibility in it that you can just pry it down. Push it up into place. Now, we'll take our plastic inserts and put them into place. If yours is in better contact than this one, you will have, once again, three 10 millimeter head bolts on each fender well in that side, and on this side, and the rest of the plastic pins, push in pins. These ones were missing or broken. Now, we'll bring it down and put our top radiator cover on.

Last piece we're going to install is our upper cover. Then, you guide the hood's latch in; pretty simple. The cover has this little tab right here. See the plastic cutoff. I'm just gonna manipulate, bend it, put it right inside the fender well. Then, we have all our plastic push tabs. Just go around, line them all up, and push them into place. Last two are these little top screws, the plastic screws. Then, I just take the plastic screw, line it up, push it down. Ready to go. Let's close the hood.
