What would you like to do?
The rear bumper cover is fastened to the car in exactly 9 places. Follow this procedure:
- Raise the trunk lid
- Remove the three push-in fasteners in the center of the top of the bumper, directly underneath where the license plate holder would be when the trunk lid is closed
- Jack up the car and remove the driver's rear wheel << you don't *have* to do this. You *can* do the rest without doing this, but your life will be easier if you do. Trust me.
- On the driver's side, at the bottom rear of the rear wheel well, remove the two screws that attach the bumper cover to the rear fender
- Peel back the wheel well liner (very stiff piece of black plastic). Remove the hidden screw attaching the bumper cover to the fender. This screw is approx 2 inches from the forward edge of the bumper cover.
- Repeat for the passenger side
- Bumper cover should simply fall off.

This video on YouTube (see Related Links) will show you how to remove the front bumper cover from of a 2004-2007 Honda Accord.
Answer To remove back bumper you need to start removing the interior panels in trunk then tail lights to access the nuts that hold it in and also there are… some plastic inserts under neath the car that must be removed also. A new one will come already painted the origonal color of your car if you give them the vin for your car and assuming it is the original color. It takes quite a while to get it off and on so set a day aside and have the new one there so you will remember where all the nuts go. Good luck
Answer A special tool called a BFH is needed. Any good mechanic will have one on hand.
This "how to" only applies to 89-94 240SX's (S13's). I'm not sure about s14's but the procedure is most likely pretty similar.. First off, you need to remove the front wheels… and the front fender lining to gain access to the nuts that hold the bumper to the fenders. Some of the nuts are hard to get to, especially the ones at the top and they are all 10mm. Try using a short extension attached to a longer extension to give you the reach and flex that you need to get the socket on the nut. Another good tool to use is a ratchet wrench, since you have limited space and it can be a life saver.. Once all the nuts holding the front bumper to the fenders are removed, there are support brackets on both sides of the bumper (bottom of bumper). Remove those, then remove the bolts that are underneath the license plate. Finally there are 4 bolts just in front of the radiator at the top of the engine bay.. Once all the above bolts/nuts/screws are removed, take out the turn signals and the bumper should come off no problem!. -Andrew
acetone,gloves and plenty of fresh air.
First remove the bumper under tray, then remove the front of both front inner wheel liners. Then there is one 10mm bolt on both lh and rh sides behind the bumper above b…oth front merker lights. Then remove the two 10mm bolts above both headlamp assemblies, and don't forget to remove the bumper slowly so that you can disconnect the bumper harness.
Open the Hood of the car. You will see where the bumper attaches to the body. there, you will see these black studs. Push the center of the stud in, then the whole stud will p…ush up towards you. Remove all of the studs you will see, then the bumper should come off pretty easily. The Japanese sure did a good job on those black studs. There are also some screws underneath, it's pretty easy to open it though, don't forget to unscrew them off before you pull out the bumper.
(2000+ celica) First, you must open the hood and remove the plastic covers. Second, you must pull back the tire guard (vented plastic part right in front of the front tires) a…nd remove the 10mm bolt. -do this to the other side as well Third, disconect the bumper blinker lights by turning (may have to push in and turn) - do not force- do both sides. Fourth, undo the bolts (there's like 12 of them) right under the bumper/ underneath the car. (3 sections of plastic bolted together) Fifth, move up top and remove the four bolts and one clip (in the center) that border the front of the engine bay. Sixth, double check everything and then pull the bumper DOWN from the car, so that the bumper slides out of the fenders. Seventh, pull out the bumper.
The front bumper or "nose can be removed by first: removing screws that are bolted to the fenders. If you look under the wheel towards the front of the car, you will see… screws that hold the fender to the front nose. Remove those. Second: If you look at the top of the front nose with the hood opened, you will see two bolts on each side of the top. These bolts secure it from the top side. So, remove the screws from the fenders and then remove the screws from the top side of the nose with the hood opened. You will see them when you open the hood. As for the screws or bolts on the bottom side securing it, I dint know if there is or not. I removed a right fender yesterday. This job is for a back yard mechanic. Its pretty easy. Good luck!!
1 Open the hood. Disconnect the electrical connectors for the fog lights and corner lights if the vehicle is equipped with them.2 Remove the radiator grille--unscrew and remov…e the radiator panel with a wrench, use a flat-head screwdriver to release the clips securing the panel to the headlights, and lift off the panel.3 Remove the fasteners connecting the plastic panel to the headlights; use a wrench on the bolts and pliers for the push pins. There are fasteners on both the upper and lower sides of the panel. Remove the push pins connecting the panel to its support rods.4 Disengage the clips that are on each end of the bumper and then pull the panel off the vehicle.5 Unbolt the panel's support rods from the metal impact bar using your wrench.6 Disconnect the bolts for the impact bar with the wrench while an assistant supports the bar.7 Detach the bumper from the vehicle, disconnecting any electrical connectors that are in the way.
you havent said if its a mk1 or 2 but have just recently changed my mk1 front bumper and is straight forward. If you put your car on ramps or axle stands and get underneath th…e car, you will find you will have to remove the splash guard with a Allen key, cant remember what size but these are all accessable. Once this is removed then proceed to look up in line with the wheel arch lining on both sides and you will see 2 bolts on each side of the car, these are 13mm. undo these and then undo the screws holding the inner arch lining out and just pull the front bumper off its slide mounts at the sides and the whole assembly comes out. Hope this helps you with your problem you havent said if its a mk1 or 2 but have just recently changed my mk1 front bumper and is straight forward.

its a series of screws and bolts.. its really easy.. first the two screws on each side of the wheel well where it meets with the fenders on each side of the car.. s…econd take the bumper lights out with the single screw either on the inside or outside (i forget).. pull out the the bumper lights and take out the lights from the light sockets on the bumper lights.. third behind the bumper lights is where the bumper support bolts on to the frame.. its alot easier if you take of the bumper support with it.. they're two 12mm bolts one on top the otherbehind each bumper light.. take off all four.. then the bumper will hang loose.. on the bottom of the bumper will be two 10mm bolts where the bumper connects to the radiator support.. take those off as well.. and voualla.. (how ever u spell it) the bumper is off when replacing any front end piece (besides the hood) it is always good to take off the front bumper.. i found out the hard way when i tried to replace my filler panel (between bumper and head light)

In Nissan 350Z
Remove the push clips under the hood (about 6?) Then pull your fender liner back in the wheel wells (turn the wheels to avoid jacking the up the car) There will be 2 bolts… in both sides (10mm Metric) where the bumper meets the fender (one is harder to see so use a flashlight) loosen those and remove them. Under the car there is several bolts (10mm) that hold the belly pan on, remove those and the bumper will be free. It should just take a little bit pulling to make it fall off.
I was raised with the "Drive forward until your tires touch the curb, gently, as if touching an egg." training. As a result I have, more than once, put that low bumper, which …makes no noise or resistance when it slides over curb, right over the top. You find this out when you back up and pull a portion of the bumper off. We knew I would likely do it again, so we use zip locks. It may not be professional, but it works. Do it again? You are only out a little time and more zip lock ties.
