there are 2 nuts holding it from the engine bay side near headlights. Two clips down near lower splash shield and screws in the corner of bumper. And 2 screws on each side hidden behind the front blinkers.

I can't believe one of the most OG members here does not know this one.

Remove your bumper lights and you will see the 14mm bolts. also remove the screw on the end of the bumper where it meets the fender. unplug the lights too. there is also a couple of fasteners under the front lip. the screws under the headlights are not accessible with the bumper in place. I left those ones off just so I can remove the front cover with very little trouble.

i always read to remove the bolts behind the blinkers but i never did
also the nuts right below the headlights inside the engine bay i never took off for me
all i do is the fender/bumper screws the blinker lights and those screws near the vent.

i really need some screws to hold my bumper in place thoe it feels so loose but no gaps
