How do I install a front bumper?

My husband had a fender bender that ripped it clean off. I have instructions on how to remove it, but at the end it just says to reverse directions to install the new one. Since my bumper is missing completely, I'm starting from scratch and need more detailed instructions.

From what I can tell the rebar/reinforcer is gone as well as the bumper cover and the foam absorber.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

You must first jack up the car to get at the lower bolts. See diagrams (BELOW)

Remove the head lamp and turn signal lamp mounting bolts (3EA) and disconnect the wire connectors.

Remove the bumper cover upper mounting bolts and retainers.

Remove the bumper cover lower mounting retainers.
Remove the front bumper cover from the front bumper back beam.

Remove the front bumper back beam mounting nuts.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken
