removed front bumper anyone ? (335d)

looking through the front FMIC grille, there is a web of plastic that the rubber seal on the OEM FMIC clips on....This is only visable as I have replaced the OEM FMIC with the Wagner one.

Removing the bumper looked like a 10 minute job (and to be honest nearly was)

I tried removing the bumper this morning to see what I could do but the last bolt on each side near the headlight is impossible to get to and on the one side I did start to loosen it on, I did it back up before it came out as it suddenly dawned on me that I was never in a million years going to be able to get that screw back in again !!

Does anyone have any tips on reaching the last bolt on each side of the bumper where the headlights are ?

Also, has anyone tried removing the piece of plastic ? I have drilled lots of 10mm holes in it to help improve airflow but would prefer to take it out completely if I can....subject to getting the bloody bumper off !

Has anyone got a breakdown of parts drawing for the bumper and grill assembly ?
