Although the following procedure can be used on all years and models, slight variations may occur.
Remove the front bumper cover assembly (and related parts) from the bumper if equipped.
Remove the bolts or nuts attaching the bumper reinforcement to the isolators. In most cases there are 6 bolts which have to be removed.
Remove the bumper assembly from the car.
Installation is the reverse of removal. Maintain the bumper installation clearance specifications and tighten the nuts to 40-50 ft. lbs. (54-68 Nm).
