Front Bumper Removal

Here is a guide on how to remove the front bumper on the Grande Punto.

First thing is to is remove the grilles top and bottom. Jack the car up and put on axle stands (makes the job alot easier!) if not do one side at a time. Undo the screws, working from the bottom, up. (If you have fog lights dont undo the screws under the light and the one at the top) Then do the screws underneath (pointed out by my picture) then you have two screws that hold the bumper to the arch. One is easy to get to the other is a pain, and this is where the axle stands come in handy. Because the car is rasied, I slid my hand up the back of the bumper to undo the screw inside the bumper. Then when tall these are done (18 in total) then undo the top four under the bonnet making it 22 in total. ( I used old carpet to rest the bumper onto to save from being marked.)

Then obviously do the reverse for puting back on.

If you have problems with anything dont hesitate to PM me

Ps, the picture shows lines to the screws, the screws are located in the same place on each side of the bumper.

Re: Front Bumper Removal

What type are these screws, any Torx or are they all the usual nuts? If they are Torx, what size are they?

Re: Front Bumper Removal

Would it be possible to get better pictures of the screws needed to be removed?

The top 4 are obvious, but where are the 5 (10) under the bumper? 3 of them i think are visible, if one of the 3 is in the hole and is very stick like (no head). Are the middle 2/4 behind the skirt?

Also where are the 5 by the fender, especially the one 'under the bonnet'? I found 2 phillips heads and a Torx (on the joint between the bumper and fender) in the wheel well.

And i suppose this would actually be miles easier to do if the car was lifted up

Re: Front Bumper Removal

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but ......

The two screws that attach the front bumper to the arch, do you have part numbers for them?
Looking at EPER i don't know if its this first set of screws or the second set with a fitting?
Also is the outer screw the same as the inner screw? It appears the garage decided not to put all my screws back in from the looks of things.
