Pretty easy Carl - I've done it more than once! Only complications are in the re-attaching of the engine cover release cable when you put it back on. Fiddly job.

From memory, remove tail lights, number plate bezel. Remove small screws around bottom sides of fascia. Disconnect engine cover release cable. Then two big nuts either side in the engine bay. Leave the ones on the side, you just need to undo the ones on the back side of the fascia. Then it should just come straight off. (Unless you've got a power aerial which is held on through the fascia too).

Think that's it. Sure someone can pipe up if I've forgotten something!

Cheers Gez - sounds simple enough - cable aside!

I think I might leave some of those nuts/screws on the fascia to soak in WD overnight before attempting to remove them...!

Having the back bumper off is the best thing to do if you need to do some stuff on your engine. No more leaning over.

Hi guys, not an update as such - just reloading some of the pics which seemed to have been corrupted in my earlier posts on this thread... For those of you who haven't read my story, enjoy! :D

P.S. I still have not removed the bumper... :?
