I'm going to use my 20+ years experience restoring and repairing cars and trucks like this to show you the correct way to install parts from 1AAuto.com. The right parts, installed correctly. That's going to save you time and money. Thank you, and enjoy the video.

In this video we'll be removing the front bumper cover on this 2007 Toyota Corolla. Now, you'll need to do this if you need to replace the headlights or fog lights or the windshield washer bottle. It's actually a pretty easy process. It's only a few fasteners. You'll need a Phillips screwdriver, a flat blade screwdriver, and a 10-mm socket and ratchet and extension, and that's only if you're doing some of the other repairs. To get the fascia off, you actually really only need a Phillips and a flat blade screwdriver.

Okay, to remove the front fascia, it's actually a series of screws. There's one, and then obviously there's one just like that on the other side. Then what you do is you pull your thing back and you can see right there. That's two. Underneath, look at the front. There's one there, and then one right there. Okay. Then this is a screw here, this little bumper. You'll need to. This is, it's kind of a screw. You actually just kind of pull the center of this up and then pull the clip out. Obviously another screw.

Then there are two connectors. Okay? Okay, you can use a little screwdriver and pop them down and reach in behind and just pull them out. And there's two of them. One there and one there. Once you've got all the fasteners out, you just start on the sides. Pull down, then pull out. There's a clip here. And just kind of take it and pull it out and it's free. Do that on the outside and it pulls right off.

Now we're going to put the front fascia back on the car. On the handle right here, and carefully slide it on, and I want to make sure I go up and over the Styrofoam. Reach back in there and just kind of, make sure I push the Styrofoam in behind the fascia. Now what I'm doing is push it on. I have the little middle clip in my hand, push that down and in so I've got it secure. Then I'm going to push it back and clip the lights in, clip this side in. Do the same thing on the other side. Push it back. Squeeze it. Repair those. Clip it in. Now I can install my fasteners and my bolts, and it's ready to go. What we want to do is pull out the bottom a little bit, push in your inner fender. Make sure it's in behind. You want it in behind the fascia.

Okay. In underneath here you can see there's a clip here. That clip has to be under the fascia and up over this plastic. Then you kind of push it all together. It's a little awkward because I'm trying to push together with my leg and film and everything, but you want to make sure that you get all this plastic together. There is a hole in this underneath part here this has to go up through. That's what holds it all in place. Okay, now, this one as well, you can see that you want to make sure that the fascia goes into that clip there, and then this one comes up and underneath. The bolt goes through everything and holds everything together.

I'll put my plugs back in. They go right up underneath. Make sure the center's pulled out, push them in. Just make sure the center's pulled out, like that. Reach up under. Push them in and lock. You've got a clip here and a screw here to tighten up, a screw here. One, two screws under here, a screw here, and a screw up in here, and the same thing on the other side.
