    I think you will have to take the bumper off to get to all the fixings that hold it in. Removing the bumper is easy, 5 minute job

    i tried taking off the front bumper before but couldn't do it. didn't want to pull on it too hard as afraid off breaking it or something.

    The trick with removing the bumper is the side bits that clip in on the wings, there is a nack to it, but once uncliped, when you have the 4 screws removed along the top and 4 clips removed underneath, the bumper just pulls away. Even easier to refit!

    Thanks guys , I will try and do it without taking the bumper off first. I'll take the bumper off if I have to.

    The trick with the side clips on the front bumper is to undo the screw on the wheel arch almost all the way, then right at the end push it forward. This unlocks the bumper, and allows it to pull free. When you've got it off you'll see the mechanism which holds it on.

    basically when you do up the screw it pulls the locking section to the rear and the tangs engage the bumper in the three long rectangular holes you can see on the top of it. By pushing the screw in just as you finish undoing it, you disengage them and allow the bumper to almost fall off...
