Once you get the bumper off most of the way it should be self explanatory.

Going to install my screens on sunday. I'm a little nervous about removing the bumper, but hopefully it all goes well.

^ I was too,but it is quite easy,just take your time.
No need to break any speed records for bumper removal.
Did you get the A/C screen also.

I'm more worried about putting it back on than taking it off. Did you jack your car up? I didnt get he a/c screen.

When removing the bumper, remember to have a blanket or something, near by, to lay the bumper on.
Also, don't pull too hard, until you get those headlight washer pumps removed!

Leafs...yuck!
I installed my screens today and to my surprise everything went quite smoothly. If anyone has trouble putting back the plastic tabs next to the wheels, don't do like I did and whack away at it. Remove the plastic 'screw' and insert the plastic piece first then put the 'screw' in.

Well, I performed this satisfying installation today. I was a bit apprehensive about bumper removal and reattachment, but it was quite straightforward, if not easy. However, I have to laugh at Racing Beat's 15-minute estimation to complete the project. Maybe having done it once, the next go-round would approach that time, but I don't expect I'll be repeating the task any time soon.*

My car is a Sport, so it's minus the foglights. Interesting that I found what I assumed to be the wired male plugs for the lights, just hanging loose. In any event, I'd like to retrofit fogs so I'll be searching the forum to see if it's possible.

Also, I've thought about replacing the plastic eggcrate grill with a matching mesh unit, though my search so far hasn't turned up anything. Might be a bit too bling anyway, so I'm not concerned.

Thanks to the OP for the pics.



*That being said, I'm kicking myself for not ordering and the radiator protection screen, so there very well may soon be a bumper removal redux.
