Default Re: Headlight Removal? (007 NHBP GD3)

I've never done it before, but I'm thinking it would be very similar to the civic. I would imgine there would be some plastic clips underneath the bumper, then 2 phillips screws on the sides of the bumper, a few clips on top of the bumper by the grill, and it should pull right off (There may be some clips you have to remove that hold the fender liner in place, maybe). Do this carefully so you don't scratch the bumper. Then you should have access to the 10mm bolts on the bottom that attatch the headlights and the bolts you've already removed on top and then you're done

the bumper has 2 screws on each wheel well. It has 5? clips up top that you pop off with a flathead screwdriver, then theres i think 7 underneath.

It only takes me about 5 min to take off everything.

O yea, the sides of the bumper clip in to underneath the headlight, when you pull the ends it sounds like cracking clips but dont worry its just unclipping.

Why should they?

Bumper removal is about one of the easiest things to do. I can yank the front and rear in under 10 minutes.
