Removal of 03 front bumper
How do you take off the front bumper on a 2003 model? I think the 03's and the 02's differ in the plastic part. The plastic part is one large one that streches to the back of the car almost, not sure where it ends. I think the 02 had a piece but im not sure. Anyway is the removal simple enough that i can take it off, switch fog light bulbs, and put it back on with no hassle? or should i just take it off and do the work when i put on my blitz front bumper which wont be for a while?

I think that you're asking if its easy to remove your front bumper. Your answer is yes it is and yes you should do it before you get your blitz front. just my .02...

The procedure was not different between 02 and 03 front bumper. Easy to do it, only need 10mm wrentch.

lol, I already did it. It wasn't too easy, kinda time consuming and a b*tch and a half. I got it off though, and putting it back on was a little easier, i guess you just got to get use to it. smile
