    Default Front bumper removal

    Got a few jobs to do on the Signum '06' plate, so it would be best to get it up on ramps. Need to do an oil change on engine and gearbox.
    So to get it on the ramps would it be easier to take the front bumper off, and how easy is it to take it off? Where is it fixed?

    Need some wooden ramp extensions that fit on to your ramps. It Lowers the angle to start with then just drive up them.

    Suppose you can take bumper off, but seems a bit long winded to me.

    Ideally, you need to jack it up to remove the clips under the front bumper.

    May as well just bung an axle stand under there and drain the engine and gearbox oil, and leave the front bumper intact.
