    You need to take the interior trim off around your boot catch, behind there will be 2 bolts ( i believe ) , and then you need to take the screws that hold your wheel arch liners onto the bumper, and Pop!, off she comes

    You got 2 8mm screws one in each arch then you need to take the boot carpet out and take off the interior trim off around your boot catch.There you will see 2 13mm bolts on each side then it just pulls off


    TO DO LIST
    Lowering springs(done)
    Uprated brake hoses
    Uprated electric fans
    Inlet manifold conversion
    Alloy wheels

    Easiest way is to remove the 3 screws in the wheel arch liner, remove the diffuser around the bottom half of the bumper, then look up and you will find 2 t50 torx bolts. One each side then the whole lot will slide off. No need to line it up again either as you are not disturbing the bolts in the boot.
