    Mk4 Bumper Removal

    Ok, iv read the How to guide on here, but can anyone who has actually done it say if it is easy though to do? im just concerned about these other clips, are they fragile and can they snap easily?

    Thanks, Andy

    Its very easy to do, my car hasn't got any lower clips so never removed them before, but can get my bumper off in a minute now. Mine has been off 20+ times in the last couple of years, still on the original top clips

    The only problem is if the screws in the wheel arch are rusted and round off.

    I was just about to put a post up about this too, as I spent an hour trying to remove the bumper today in -5 and eventually gave up. The little bolts/plastic rivets underneath wouldn't budge at all! Tried various techniques... they weren't frozen neither :/ Then i sprayed some wd40 on the bolts in the wheel arches and managed to round the head off one of them because it is so rusted on... that is when i gave up.

    How would you suggest removing the rounded off bolt?

    If anyone was wondering i was trying to remove the bumper to replace the headlights.

    Cheers.
