I think on the other thread isaac posted about taking the headlight out which is simple also to get down there easier. The bumper is really easy though man...I am 16 and did it with no problems.

Total of 7 screws on the top-side... the pictures i posted above, just show these 7 locations in duplicate/from several angles.

on the bottom, your plastics are attached to the bumper... I think there are 8 connectors on the bottom to... but these are all obvious to find - work on the underplastics first and then work on the above 7 mentioned screws thumbsup

if this is your first time and you are not totaly confident - print out the above photos (or draw a picture) and when you take the screws off, put them onto of the pictures in the locations that you removed them from... this will make putting things back together so much easier grin

I thought the other thread was about browneyedchikk having problems removing the right side marker light ("bumper light"), and this thread is about browneyedchikk having problems on removing the front bumper in order to get to the side marker light, and VSGTS mentioned that probably a more convenient way to get to the side marker light is that you could take off the headlight, and my post was to inform brawneyedchikk that in order to take off the headlight you would need to take off the front bumper anyways.
