HI, make sure you look closely behind the bumper, the mounting brackets and reinforcement are designed to absorb the impact so a lot of time they are damaged also. Look where the headlight assembly mounts and the radiator mounts, this is called the core support. It is made out of fiberglass and is very acceptable to cracking and breaking. If it is cracked there are a lot of mechanical parts attached to it and quite the job to replace. Good luck

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.

What parts are needed for replacing the front end of a 2001 monte carlo? I find bumper covers, reinforcements, energy absorbers, etc. Do I need some or all of these?


It depends on how far in the damage goes. Usually fenders, hood, bumper cover and headlights, but if the damage is deep, you could need a bumper, absorbers, the bumper mounts, even the radiator support assembly, which requires welding.

Pull off the damaged parts and set them aside, and then go to gmpartsdirect.com and click on the catalog link, fill in your make and model and look for the bodyparts you need to replace.

A minor fender bender knocked the pass side frt flare and fender splash guard off shearing all the fasteners. What do I need in order to re-fit them? Later, I will need to replace the front bumper cover -...


Any auto parts store will have those fasteners.Most just push in(one time use only)and others are two piece and can be used over and over.You will need to know the size of the hole where the fasteners lock into.
