    It's pretty much the same process as for a Mk4, once you've removed the grill

    2 push pin rivets on the top edge
    2 screws in each wheel arch (top and bottom)
    3 push pin rivets along the bottom edge
    unclip temp sensor
    pull off at the sides.

    The only other thing is to unclip the headlamp washer pipe form the res'er if you've got that fitted, and watch the water run out
