    theres 2 little buggers either side that u cant see that hold the bumper to the wing - its joins the top edge of the bumper to the arch trim and is a tad on the hard side as all the mud collects in there - the wheelarch bits on mine were sika flexed to the rest of the plastic arch and are not fixed to the actual bumper

    other than that the fixings are the same as a coupe

    will also add once removed you dont have to refit them - i found them not really neccesary to be there (one of mine wouldnt come out so i had to hacksaw the screw in half by sticking the blade in the slit between the arch extension and the bumper if that makes sense)

    there not hex - normal phillips head - the 2 normal side fixings are hex tho as normal coupe

    go by the car, wheel to your right looking forward towards the nonnet, where the bottom of the bumper is put your finger to the inside of the bumper and go upwards, when you meet the bit where the bumper ends and the arch extension starts - the screw holds these 2 togeather - mud gathers in there so you may not see it or feel it.

    red line should explain the screw position and location, dots are the other fixings. screw head is in the arch section into the bumper - if it wont unsrew slip a hacksaw between the arch/bumper panel gap and saw it in half - you will not need to refit it as there is plenty of tension when you have to pull the bumper back around to refit
