Installation of a front bumper can be complicated. These helpful instructions may help a person with this task. If you choose to install a bumper yourself, please be cautioned that professional installation is always recommended. Please confirm before you start that your safety equipment has been applied to you, your car and your new bumper. These 10 easy steps can make a difficult install relatively easy.
The following steps are detailed instructions that you can follow. It is very important that you make sure to read each step carefully and completely:
1. Look closely at the new bumper and your car for screws, bolts and clips. Remove these pieces from your existing front bumper and place them in a safe area. Follow this by the full removal of the cars current front bumper.
2. Next, test the fit of the new front bumper. Make sure that nothing hinders with the placement and fit on the car.
3. If the fitment is correct the installation process may move forward.
4. If the fitment is incorrect then the removal or repositioning of certain components, such as reinforcement bars may be required. This is because every car is different. If this is the case remove the element and test fit the front bumper again. This should be done with caution and is done at the installers own risk.
5. Most of the time the new aftermarket bumper is placed the exact way the factory piece was. The most important key to great fitment in installation is the drilling procedure. The holes should be drilled in the places that will give the piece a great fit. Usually, these holes will be drilled in the same place as the factory bumper. At this point only mocking is required.
6. When the bumper is in place, shaving or filing maybe required. Many parts will require this because certain areas are made with more material to lower the risk of damage. Also, if a car has been in an accident or previously modified, this may cause additional sanding, cutting or filing.
7. Now that the front fits well, be very precise and drill the holes.
8. Prepping for paint is what needs to be done after the holes have been drilled. Depending on what material the front bumper is made of will determine the steps for prepping.
9. After the piece has been painted, clear coating may be appropriate.
10. Make sure there are not any leftover parts and that everything is secure. After this is done, your front bumper installation process is complete.

Remove front bumber 1996 honda accord-lx


There will be a number of smaller screws around the outside of the bumper, like in the wheel well and under the car by the splash shield under the engine. All of those will need to be removed. Then you need to remove the turn signal lights in the front bumper with a long phillips screwdriver. Take a flashlight and look inside the bumper through the lower grill at the side of the turn signal housing. You'll see a small hole for the screwdriver. The screw doesn't need to come all the way out to remove the light.
Remove turn signal housing on both sides and look back at the frame crossmember behind the bumper. There are two large bolts on each side holding the bumper on. You'll need some extensions to reach them. Once those are out, you'll be able to tell if you missed any smaller screws/clips.

How do you remove the front bumper cover on a 98 honda accord sedan EX


Apply the parking brake and raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands.

Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive battery cable and wait two minutes before proceeding further (make sure you have the code if you have an anti-theft radio because you will need it after disconnecting the battery).

Working under the vehicle, detach the screws securing the lower edges of the bumper cover (use a small screwdriver to pop the center button up on the plastic fasteners, but do not try to remove the center buttons. They stay in the ferrules)

Remove the bolts, screws and plastic pins on each side retaining the bumper cover to the splash shields. Remove the bolt on each side where the bumper cover attaches to the fender.

Working at the top, detach the retaining bolts (2) securing the bumper cover to the hood latch support. Remove the cover.

When you put it back, make sure the tabs along the top edge of the bumper cover fit into the corresponding clips on the body before attaching the bolts and screws. An assistant is helpful.

Hope this helps you.

in case this has not been solved, you will need to remove the retaining clips, screws and bolts from the underside of the car. remove the left and right turn signals, in addition there are 2 bolts on each side of the bumper in the turn signal area, lift and gently pull forward to remove, re assemble as you have taken apart, best of luck, thanks
