Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks.

In this video we're going to show you how to remove and put back on the front bumper cover on this '97 Dodge Intrepid. Same as a '93 to '97. Tools you'll need are a Phillips screwdriver, probably a regular one as well as a short one, an awl or some type of slender lineup tool, as well as 3/8"? socket with a ratchet and extension.

There's actually a bolt right up in here that you want to get to. So you want to remove a series of screws: one, two, three, and one way back in there. You want to remove a series of screws: one, two, three, four, and one underneath here, five. I'm going to fast forward through taking those screws off. You need to turn your wheels. I do have the car up on a lift. It's not necessary: it just makes it a lot easier to video, but, like I said, fast forward through taking those screws off. There is a sixth one. It's up higher. You'll probably see me take it out. I didn't show that one to you on the first clip, but, you do want to remove six screws. Flip it down and out, like that. Now you'll see me use a 3/8"? socket to remove the bolt up in that corner. I'm not sure if they are supposed to be 3/8"? inch or 10mm, but 3/8"? inch seemed to work for me. Remove that one and then also do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle. Now there are five 3/8"? bolts to remove. I'm going to use some air power. They are not going to be in there with that much torque. So, we'll speed up through doing that. Biggest problem I had here actually was the bolt would get stuck into the socket so I just used a screwdriver to poke them out, but, we'll finish those up. Once the bolts are off of each side you can pull, on the other side. If you have fog lights, disconnect the fog lights from each side and the cover is now off.

You can see on each side, it goes into a couple of clips that are up underneath here. Let's connect our fog lights. Then put up into place roughly. Get your attention on one side. You want to get these up to align with the clips. Push it back in, and then on this side. This little awl, it's always good to have one of these. Put it in the hole. Line it up. Sometimes you line up one, then you can go and find the other ones. So I use the awl. I poke it through a hole and then find the hole in behind it. Line up the fender. Hold the fender in place and then put the screw in. Remove the awl and put the screw in and just do that for all six screws. Get them nice and snug. They don't have to be extremely tight, but you want them firm. We'll speed through here again. Put in those 3/8"? bolts and tighten them up nice and firm. Again, I have the car up on a lift. It's not necessary; it just makes it easier to video.
