How to remove front bumper reinforcement on an 01 Montero Sport?

It seems like there are four bolts built into the reinforcement peice that attach to the frame.  I have nuts off the top two, but I can't figure out how to get the bottom two loose.  I can't tell if they are bolts or alignment pins.  I can't see/get to nuts on the back of them.

    The two lower bottom have a small rubber boot that you can take off with a part of needle nose pliers. Underneath you will find a 12mm bolt holding it onto the frame. You will need a long 4" fitment to turn the bolts as they are difficult to get to in the front of the wheel well

SOURCE: front alignment

You cannot/should not attempt to adjust alignment without having an alignment machine at hand. There are many settings related to wheel alignment: Toe, camber, caster, scrub, thrust angle. Usually, shims are needed for caster modifications, for toe you need to rotate the tie rods, etc... Every different model has a different setup. With the relatively low cost of a 4 wheel professional alignment today, I would not recommend attempting this yourself. Whatever money you save you'll pay triple or more in tire wear, and soon enough.

SOURCE: check engine light

this light is warning you of a serious issue concerning a failed sensor in the engine. you will need to run this vehicle in the nearest dealership for a diagnostic scan on the ecm/pcm device. this scan will give detailed info on the location of the problem and how to fix it. this scan cpu will also reset the light and it will shut off once the issue is fixed.

If you just want to shut the light off, you can just pull the battery post for a minute. this will reset the ecm but, if the issue is not fixed, the light will come back on in the coming days.

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.
