REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 and 2
On most models, the front facia/bumper cover must be removed before bumper removal. The facia is usually fastened on both sides and along its entire length.
- The bumper is freed by removing the 8 attaching bolts.
- Squeeze the bumper pad retaining tabs with pliers and push them through their holes until the pads are removed.
- Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten the bracket-to-bumper bolts to 14-20 ft. lbs. (19-27 Nm) and the isolator-to-reinforcement bolts to 25-38 ft. lbs. (34-51 Nm).
