    Default removing front bumper on preface sri, am i missing something?

    i have removed the 2 torx screws in each wheel arch lining, the rivets underneath along the front of the car, and the 2 rivets between the headlights. is there anything else i am missing or should it now just come off? it still feels like there is something holding it either side about 6" from the wheels,

    Just grab the edge by the wheel and give it a yank outwards

    It clips in by the wing but pulls out really easily

    Don't worry you won't damage it

    outwards, as in sideways, or towards the front of the car?

    hard to describe, pulling didnt really work for me, it kinda helps if you slide it forward as pulling, mine went back on easier the taking it off, but yes 2 bolts on the liner and however many along the top panel, you will get the hang of it mate.
