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

To remove the bumper, the vehicle doesn't have to be in the air, but we just got it lifted so that we can show you where the screws are. It's easier to see. There's one that's up here. This little access hole in the fender liner. Can use a Phillips Head, or a 10mm socket. I'm actually going to use the socket ratchet. It’s a little easier to remove the screw.

There's a self-tapping bolt at the bottom of the bumper here. Either use a Philips Head or a 10mm socket. Repeat the bolt removal for the opposite side. Here in our bumper it seems to be missing a bracket maybe. There would either be screws, self-tapping screws with little plastic inserts or plastic push clips. Obviously, it’s been repaired before. Maybe hit in the rear.

Somebody just zip tied it so to remove the bumper we're just going to clip off these zip ties. But, you may have the correct hardware here. So it will either be self-tapping screws or push clips. To open the trunk and there are two more bolts. Beneath these plastic caps here, you're going to use a small flat bladed screwdriver. Pop them out, see the little tether, and they'll stay there.

These are 10mm bolts. Remove the two of them. Protect our bumper and our body work from scratching, while we remove the bumper, just going to put some masking tape between them. And, just repeat this for the other side. Bumper is clipped in on your bracket along this edge here. So basically, you're just going to grab it and give it a good pull. It sounds like it's breaking it, but it's not. It's just popping the tabs out of this bracket all the way around. Just going to hang it back in place so you can get the other side.

All right. Now repeat for the other side. Okay, can reinstall the bumper. Hang it on these hooks here first, line it up, just push it in place, and repeat that for the other side. Going to reinstall these bolts.

Reinstall this lower self-tapping bolts and make sure it's lined up. Reinstall the upper self-tapping bolts. Repeat for the other side. Replace your bolts or clips. Or in our case, we're going to re zip tie these. Remove your masking tape.
