This post is a timely reminder that I need to realign my headlights so bumper off job. Is this a by the eye job or does anyone have a guide. Near side light is fine but off side was replaced by previous owner and its not quite right. My OCD does not like it.

I've just noticed by front bumper feels a little 'loose' on the nearside and the black plastic spacer thing looks a bit wavy. May need to use this excellent guide to do a bumper removal and inspect those pesky clips.

Just wanted to say thanks to this post for helping me with removing the front bumper removal to replace the balast on my foggy headlight!

A classic old thread I know but just saw this about an engagement lug. My front bumper appears to be sat incredibly low on the car. The bonnet and wings line up nicely but the bumper top line is just very low. The top strip has already been pushed as far back as possible to no avail. Currently idea is to shim the top strip to bring it up a bit. However, could this engagement lug thing as above from cj be causing the bumper to sit unnaturally low? Any ideas much appreciated!

Another thankyou very much to the OP, a great guide. Having never tackled anything like this in the past, followed step by step to remove and replace the bumper to allow a change of headlight units today. Job done in around 3 hours.

What a great thread! I hit a critter last Fall and it wound up shattering all three front splash guards and cracking the lower grill on my '07 3.0si Roadster. A local body shop quoted me a great price on a respray if I brought the bumper cover to them. Using this thread, I was able to remover and then reinstall everything with no trouble at all. Detaching the fender ends from the clips was the hardest part. I cracked one but replacements, although expensive, are easily sourced. It's off to the body shop tomorrow for a buff out to complete the job.

Thanks again!
