Detailed instructions on front bumper removal. NOTE: From all the videos, it appears the CAB is different than the sedan. An example is the grill does NOT come up with the hood.


Remove wheels. Remove fender liners front. Remove three nuts per side from inside fender wells. Remove fog lamp grilles. Remove vertical bolt just inside grilles--pointing up. Remove two screws per side under hood near front of fender. Put milk crate under front bumper. Remove belly pan first. Slide bumper forward onto milk crate, disconnect headlight washer line at quick disconnect if so equipped. Disconnect fog light connectors. Remove bumper.

How to replace front light in mazda 3


to replace the headlight, the bumper should be removed, in order to expose the bottom bolts of the headlight. be carefull, on the side of the fenders where the bumper clips in, it usually breaks if manhandled. this will cause the bumper to clip out in the fender sides.

Remove front bumber from 1996 honda accord lx


I believe there will be many screws under the car with the splash shield that must be removed. Remove screws/retainers from the fender well liner in each wheel well, but only toward the front (no need to remove the entire thing). Behind the fender liner toward the front of the car you'll see some screws/clips holding the bumper to the front/bottom of the fender.
You'll need to remove each turn signal in the front of the bumper with a long phillips screwdriver. Use a flashlight to look in from the middle of the lower bumper and you'll see a hole where the screw driver goes in (loosen the screw, but it probably wont come out). Pop the lamp assembly out, but don't force it- the opposite side of the lamp has a tab that fits in a slot to help hold it in place.
Look straight back from where the turn signal lamps were removed and you'll see 2 bolts on a metal bracket. There are 2 on each side, behind each lamp. You'll need some long extensions to get all the way in there. Be sure to support the bumper as you take these out, because they are the main support points for the bumper assembly.
Once these are out, the bumper should come off, or at lease you'll see if there were any small screws you missed. FYI, I left almost all of the screws out of my bumper (except one on each side where it attaches to the fender), so all I have to do is remove those 4 main bolts behind the turn signal lights to drop the bumper.

I neede to remove the headlights for my 2008 E 350 and need instructions. OIt appears that removing the front bumper is needed ? Thanks


Here's some instructions for removing bumper and headlights.

E-Class W211 front bumper removal (standard body style).

Tools needed:
- Automotive wheel ramps (Rhino ramps from Autozone).
- 1/4" drive socket set with 8mm and 10mm sockets.
- #20 torx bit.
- Floor jack, optional but useful.
- Flat blade screwdriver.

Instructions for bumper removal:

1) Turn front wheels full right to remove push-pin fastener at lower front corner of left wheel well plastic splash guard. It's difficult to remove this fastener once the car is up on the wheel ramps.

2) Turn front wheels full left to remove push-pin fastener at lower front corner of right wheel well plastic splash guard.

3) Drive car up on wheel ramps. Block rear tires. Open hood.

4) Remove lower mesh plastic grille. There are five attachment points on the top edge of the grille. You can get to three of them with your hand by reaching between the radiator and the back side of the grille. The two outer ones can be released with a screwdriver also reaching in between the grille and radiator. Once the plastic tabs are released, you can remove the grille by pulling it out from the front of the car.

5) Remove the plastic panel located immediately behind the bumper from the bottom of the engine compartment. This panel is held in place with nine sheet metal screws with a 8mm hex head. Five screws are on the bottom of the car and there are two screws in each wheel well at the inner lower edge. After removing all nine screws you can work the panel free.

6) Disconnect the cable from each fog light and remove both fog lights. They are held in place by two sheet metal screws with a #20 torx head.

7) Remove the side marker bulbs. The one on the passenger side turns clockwise to remove and the one on the driver side turns counter-clockwise.

8) Remove the temperature sensor from its socket on the driver side.

9) If you have a floor jack, raise the car at the jack point on the cross member below the engine. You do not want to raise it off the wheel ramps. But it helps to have more clearance above the tires to work in the front wheel wells.

10) Remove three of the plastic nuts holding the forward half of the plastic wheel well liner in place. It's not necessary to remove the plastic liner. You just need to loosen it up so that you can pull it away from the fender to gain access to the screw and bracket securing the bumper to the fender.

11) Pull back the wheel well liner and remove the sheet metal screw from the rear end of the metal bracket . There is only one sheet metal screw (#20 torx head) holding this bracket in place. Don't attempt to remove the bracket yet. I used a #20 torx bit in a 1/4" socket with a 6-inch extension for a 1/4" drive wrench. The head of the screw faces the ground.

12) Remove the 5mm bolts (8mm hex head) holding the bumper to the headlight assembly between the small lens and large lens (both sides).

13) Remove the two 6mm bolts (10mm hex head) on either side of the large grille area opening.

14) Remove the two 6mm bolts (10mm hex head) securing the bumper to the bottom edge of the crashbar. You can access these bolts through the front where you removed the plastic mesh grille.

15) Remove the three 5mm bolts (8mm hex head) holding each headlight assembly in place. Two longer bolts are on top. One at the rear outer corner and one at the front inner corner. The third bolt is accessed from the bottom. It's in the area above the fog lamps. You don't need to disconnect the headlight cables and remove the assembly. But it helps to allow the headlight assembly to "float" freely while you disengage the bumper from the fender.

16) At this point all of the fasteners holding the bumper in place have been removed. The only thing left to do is to remove the two brackets "clamping" the bumper cover to the lower front edge of the front fenders. Before you do this, position some cardboard boxes, bags of packing material, six packs of paper towels, or other suitable items to protect the bumper in case it falls off the car.

17) The bracket holding the bumper cover to the fender has a "pin" that slips into a slot at the front edge of the bumper cover. There is a matching slot near the front edge of the fender. It's not possible to see this pin from the bottom of the car. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pry the bracket away from the bumper/fender and towards the center of the car. The bracket will "hinge" on the pin at the front end of the bracket. After you swing the bracket away from the bumper, you need to slide it forward to remove it from the slot in the bumper cover and fender. You will probably scratch some paint off of this bracket with the screwdriver. I recommend repainting the scratched areas of the bracket before reinstalling it.

18) After removing the bracket from each side of the car you need to deal with the small plastic "hook" holding the bumper cover to the very front tip of the fender. This hook is an integral part of the bumper cover. Disengaging this hook from the fender is probably the most difficult step of removing the bumper. Simultaneously raise the head light assembly slightly, push the leading edge of the fender outward slightly, and push the bumper cover inward toward the headlight assembly. Don't get too aggressive with the fender. It's aluminum and you will make a real mess if you apply too much pressure on the fender. It took me about 20 minutes to free each side from this hook. It should take you less time, since you now know that the hook exists!

19) Gently pull the bumper forward and away from the car. This is one step where a second person would be helpful. But I did manage to do this step alone. There is a "pulley" like attachment point on each side just below the fender/bumper seam.

To re-install the bumper, reverse the order of the steps above. When re-installing the bracket between the bumper cover and fender, I smeared a thin coating of car wash soap on the bracket to facilitate snapping the bracket back into place.

Front bumper of 94 cad eldorado slipping on driver side - need to


There are 4 points of attachment for the front bumper. The nose has two long bolts that go through each of the 2 horizontal shock absorbers and screw into clips attached to the bumper reinforcement. You can access each bolt head with a long socket extension inserted in front of the fog lights.

The remaining two points of attachment are on the side of each of the front fenders, they are plastic guides that meet up with groves on the inside of the bumber sides, as you slide the bumper onto the reinforcement bumper, you line up the bumper groves with these plastic fender-mounted guides and you will reach a point where the bumper snaps in place.

I suspect the driver side bumper sliped out of the inner grove (best caes scenario), or the bumper goves cracked or the plastic fender-mounted guide cracked.

Get under the car to take a look, alternatively undo the 2 front nose bolts and remove the bumper, actually not a big job, and you will then be able to assess the problem.

Hope this helps.
