Default Removing 04 Front Bumper

I have search but cannot seem to find instructions on removing the front bumper cover. Is it the same as the 06-07, bc i found a write up on that model. I was wondering if i needed to take off the wheels or if i could use ramps? Thanks for any help.

its really easy, take off your grill there are a bunch of clips under that..then there 1 clip on each side where the bumper meets your fender in the wheel well area, under the fender liner....

you just look under your car and take out all the clips. If you have the plastic undertray, you will need to remove it. Under that plastic tray on each side, there is a push tab that's not as visible as the front ones. You need to take those out. Also, in the fender well on each side of the bumper, there are tabs in there. You need to bend or pull out the fender well to access these tabs. These are tabs are the screwed on type and are a PITA to get out. I had trouble in that i was unscrewing but it wasnt popping up. So i took a screwdriver and just pulled it hard until it came out.

Word of advice: make sure you go to the dealer or wherever and buy some extra push clips. You will probably break a few while you try and yank them out.

Have fun and good luck

I wouldn't even waste time with the clips that hold the bumper to the fender. The packaging calls them Scrivets. I just use a knife cut it between the fender and the bumper. They are less than a dollar and not worth trying to re-use and a pain to get out.
