Arrow Removing front bumper

Is there a complete guide to removing the front bumper on an 04-05 wrx/sti?

I know there is one on scoobymods but it doesn't go into GREAT detail about clips..etc

I am going to be getting thd JDM foglights and want to know ahead of time how involved the bumper removal is...

Anyone have pictures or tips on how to remove the front bumper.. IE: number of clips to remove, where they are located..etc

Pictures are also a plus.

Thanks,
-Nigel

it's easy.

remove grille

remove headlights

remove fogs - and/or fog covers if applicable

this will reveal clips
start removing them (small flathead screwdriver)
clips are found are atop and below the bumper skin


where the corners of the bumper meet the fender
reach in and you will feel a bolt. (10mm IIRC)
there is one on each side

remove all of this, give it a little tug

if it's still stuck, there's a clip you have missed

really, it's quite simple

Thanks Jamie!

I thought there were bolts and bits under the car as well...

You make it sounds easy...lol

On a scale of 1-10 what would this be as hardness wise?

I isntalled my spec c roof vent and jdm sidemarkers by myself... and I thought those were easy... body work though, I've never done...eeekk..
