You have to have a little mechanic ability to unbolt them and reinstall them.

^^^^that is a given, here is a step by step instruction on how to remove the bumper on a Dodge Dakota 98-99 (i'm sure it's the same for a few other years mainly generation 2 Dakota's), and a list of tools needed.

Tools needed:

18 mm Socket and a ratchet

WD-40/PB Blaster

#2 Phillips bit screwdriver / flat head (in order to remove bumper cover)

how to remove the bumper:

1.) pop your hood and open it all the way

2.) look down in front of your coolant overflow tank and just to the left of the radiator

3.) remove the four 18mm bolts from bumper

4.) pull bumper out

(if you need to remove the brakets that the bumper is bolted to then you need a T50 star bit and a 3/4 inch socket with a 6" extention)

How do you remove a bumper from a 1999 escort zx2?

To remove the front bumper on a zx2 , first you need to remove all of the fasteners on the top side of the bumper. ( open the hood and look straight down, remove all of those black plastic retaing screws.) After you remove the fasteners from the topyou need to lay down and get all of those small screws on the bottom/front of the bumper. Basically they just hold on the front splash guard but you need to remove them anyways. Once you take care of the top and bottom side of the bumper you need to remove both of the front inner fender wells. It's usually easier if you remove the wheels first. Once you remove the inner fender wells, get you a 3/8 drive ratchet wrench with a LONG extension. There are two (2) bolts on each side of the bumper, I believe they are a 13mm. Take out all four (4) bolts and then remove the front bumper cover and your done.

It is easy. just remove the 4 large nuts next to your tow hooks. I always wrap the ends of the bumper with tape or something to protect from scratching the bumper when you finally get the nuts loose. The ends will want to go up and hit the fender paint.
