pic 2 is the inside upper bumper corner. to get access of this remove the 2 bolts near the edge of the bumper and fold the fender well cover back to see it.

Just for clarification...

You should twist out the fog light bulbs before removing the bumper. Be careful not to touch the bulbs though...

the orange reflector is us DOT requirement, but i know a bunch ofpeople have teh euro clears. I believe a fartsy, got-nothing-better-to-do cop could give you a ticket for losing the orange reflector....

Can anyone tell me the exact tools I need to remove the bumper and headlights? I don't have any tools myself, so my friend is going to help me and he needs to know what is needed. Thanks in advance!

metric socket set, torx drivers (I believe it was either a 23 or 25 that we used). That should be about it. Those screws on the inside of the wheel well that hold the fender on are a bitch to get off... atleast it was for me and my fat hands

Quick question for those who have Cold Weather Package, is there anything special that needs to be done in order to get the bumper off because of the headlight washers?

How easy is it for this to be done? Does the car have to be jacked up, or is it possible to do it from the ground?
