[FONT=&quot]Hello! First of all, sorry for my English :eek:
Removing the bumper: The process was much simpler than seemed at first glance. Unscrew at 30 degrees plastic rivets (6 pcs.) on front grill, so that the cap would be raised a bit, then gently pulling rivets.

Nice thread and don't worry about you English because a) it is pretty good anyway and b) a picture tells a thousand words!

How did you go about the switch for the fog lights? I assume it was missing as the car didn't come with them from the factory?

Excellent post, used it as a reference to get to the O/S headlight, got smashed whilst driving on the motorway, I'm sure somebody dropped something out of their car.

Saved me the expense of a mechanic. Again, excellent.

An excellently descriptive post. Although, personally - I'd have attempted to reach the area for locating the foglights from underneath, rather than removing the entire front end.

Full marks for effort though!

Excellent post really useful ... I had a brick fall off a skip lorry and it pushed the fog light back breaking the bracket. But with this post, a bit of wire to take the place of the broken bracket and 30 minutes start to finish I had it fixed! Delighted... THANKS!!:d

Thanks great post - helped me replace the grey plastic bumper insert...I found it a bit tricky to get off from the outside, no problem once the bumper was off.

What an excellent post. We recently had an argument with a Wood Pigeon, and it became trapped behind the bottom grill and to free it (it was still alive) I had to remove the rest of the grill by destroying what was left. Having obtained a new grill your description meant that I could replace it in under an hour. Your excellent pictures made it so easy. It also answers the question of how to replace a fog lamp bulb.

Thanks
