    Hello all, I have recently purchased a M3 bumper for my e36 but would really like some advice on fitting before I start playing around and maybe do something wrong..has anyone done this before or have guidelines...? Either that or does anyone have a link to a previous post as cant find anything so far.

    Any help will be greatly received. Many thanks

    Andy

    From under the car remove the 8mm screws that hold the wing undersheilds on both sides of the bumper. IIRC there are 5 or 6 each side from underneath. Then put the front wheels on a full lock and undo the 8mm screw that holds the wingliner to the bumper, turn the wheel on the other lock and do the same on the other side.

    Gently prize out the towing eye cover trim strip from the front, then gently prize out the trim strip on the passenger side front, the front pulls out and then you slide the side towards you and it will pull out. You will then see the 4 13mm headed nuts that hold the bumper on. Undo these and pull the front bumper off, but be careful not to catch the wings. Then disconnect the fog light wires. Job done bumper off.....
