    because the fixing points are behind the bumper and inaccessible unless the bumper's removed

    Yeh, not sure if you seen my lights'caliper post, you can see i had to remove the bumper.. not such a hard task

    1/2 bolts/clips in each arch

    When you open the bonnet theres 2 clips on the top of the bumper

    2/3 clips/bolts under neath the bumper

    2 bolts on top for lights and 1 under neath.
