Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and the next time you need a part for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to remove and replace your bumper cover on this 2005 Ford Focus. The items you'll need for this include a 7mm socket, 10mm socket, ratchet, ¼ inch socket, a T30 torx bit, a Philips screwdriver, and a flat blade screwdriver.

We have to start off by removing the shroud, and it's held them with three Philips clips. To remove these, just twist out the center, and they pull up. We'll just fast-forward as Don does this. Once those are removed, the shroud will pull up and off. Next, you want to pry out these two clips, as well as remove these two 10mm bolts. To pry out the clips, just use a pair of pliers. You can also use a flat blade screwdriver, and you just want to pry them up and out.

Now that the bolts are removed, lift the tabs on the top, and then slide the grille forward and out. Under your bumper cover, you'll see a series of 7mm bolts, and we'll just fast-forward as Don removes these. Next, you want to remove this T30 bolt, and you want to remove this on the other side as well. Then you want to remove this 7mm bolt right here, and we'll just fast-forward as Don does this and again. You want to do this on the other side as well.

Inside your inner fender, you'll see along the edges of the bumper cover the three black 10mm bolts, and you want to just go ahead and remove those. We'll just fast-forward as Don does that. To get to the three bolts on this side, you have to remove your intake box, so loosen up this hose clamp with a 1/4 inch socket. Now you have to remove these 10mm bolts that hold in your air intake box, and we'll just fast-forward as Don removes those.

Now you want pull your air intake box down and you just want to pull it down so you can access the top post clamp. Then loosen that with your 1/4 inch socket. Now that the air intake box is removed, you can remove these three 10mm bolts, and we'll just fast-forward as Don removes those. Now you want to twist out your side marker light bulbs. The socket just twist and pulls out, and you want to do the same thing on the other side. Now you can pull your bumper down and then the other side do the same thing. Then we'll just pull the bumper straight out.

Now line up the bumper and push it into place. Then replace those rubber clips along the top and just push down the center to lock them. Now line up the tabs on the side up the bumper and push it up into place. Do the same thing on the other side. Then we'll just fast-forward as Don replaces those three 10mm bolts.

Twist your side marker light sockets back into place on both sides, and then feed up your air intake box back into place and reconnect that upper hose. Then we're just going to fast-forward as Don tightens up that hose clamp.

Now push the lower hose back into place, tighten up that hose clamp, and then replace those three bolts that hold the air intake box in place. Replace those three 10mm bolts on this side of the bumper, and replace that series of 7mm bolts along the bottom of your bumper. If you remove any of these clips, replace them, and then you want to replace that T30 in both wheel wells and that 7mm bolt in both wheel wells. Now feed your grille back into place, and slide it back and replace those two 10mm bolts. Then just replace your shroud and with the centers back inside the clips, push them down into place, and then push the center down the locket. Then you're all set.
