    Cant say about the rear but here goes for the front

    Remove the grill
    2 screews on each side holding each inner wheel arch to the bumper
    2 screews up high in each wheel arch and the drivers side one can be hard to get at so i remove part of the air box in the wheel arch
    Sometimes 3 screews under the front
    2 large bolts "13mm" holding bumper to front, get at from under through wheel arch again.

    I have a bumper in my garage where I can take pics if you want to give u a idea where it all is

    The rears even easier than that. (Haynes Manual dictation):

    1. The bumper is removed as a complete assembly with the rear trim panel.

    2. On saloon and Hatch models remove the no-plate light unit.

    3. Working under the wheel arches, unscrew the 2 screws securing each side of the bumper to the brackets on the body.

    4. Where applicablle, remove the rear luggage compartment trim panel for access to the bumper-to-rear body panel nuts(On estate/Van one nut is under the spare wheel cover).

    5. Unscrew the two bumper to rear body panel nuts(one at each side of the bumper). Recover the washers.

    6. Carefully withdraw the bumper from the vehicle.

    REFITTING - is reversal of removal.

    God that line gives me nightmares. My astra is in a few pieces in the garage at the moment, oh I took everything apart with ease, but now when Mr Haynes tells me refitting is the reverse of removal, I break out into a cold sweat. All of a sudden it seems that i'm missing half the nuts and bolts I carefully took stock of, and I haven't a notion where the other half go... :?

    im guessing the new bumper (it aint a standard one) is just as easy to fit, just a few holes need drilling?

    Not knowing alot about after market bumpers but I would have thought if it was designed for a MK3 all the mounting bits would be the same
