    Does anyone have a video on how to take off front bumper. I’m not a body guy at all

    1112191956_HDR.jpg Let me tell you. Remove the plastic on top of the grille when done put the two front bolts back in the top of the grille, remove the splash guard, remove the screws in the fender liner attaching to the front bumper, don't forget there's one in the top corner, disconnect the wire harness to both front foglights. On each corner of the front bumper where it connects to the front fender...get your fingers underneath, pull firm and fast, pops out...you won't break any tabs...for real don't worry about it, go to the other side do the same. Now go to the front, take those two bolts back out...lift up slightly and pull towards you...front bumper comes off and youll be holding it in the center by the top of the grille, lower on the blanket or cardboard you placed earlier.....thats how you do it solo.

    Here's my step by step "How-To" tutorial I authored (many years ago now) on this very subject matter.

    Still applicable for the '13 +. Good luck.

    Do it often enough, and it'll get quicker with each subsequent removal.

    Fastest I've done it is 12 minutes.

    You'll be amazed at how little actually holds the front clip to the car. Might even be a tad dumbfounded.
