    two torx screw in each side of the wheel arches and then under the car of the bumper there will 5 plastic plugs pull out the centre pin then the outer part will just pull out, then open the bonnet and you will see 2 black plastic gromets push the center pin through but put your hand under neath them as you will loose them, the pull the bumper out from the wings first (they will be like a snap fit)then the bumper will just slide forward hope this helps you out m8

    I thought there was more to it on a facelift - obviously not!

    Not if you do the job properly. Slacken off the upper of the 2 screws in the wheel arch, then push it back in before totally removing it. This releases the locking clips that hold the bumper to the wing so it detaches easily and no need to "snap" the bumper from the wing.
