Front Bumper Replacement...

Hello Everybody!

My dearly beloved managed to driver her 2001 SX into the back of a van over the weekend. Fortunately for the van it was fitted with a towbar which has made a right mess of her Mulitpla's front bumper. It seems easy enough to source a replacement bumper, but are they easy to remove/fit? Can't seem to find much on here about this particular bit of work?

Any help/hints would be most appreciated!

Thanks!

Re: Front Bumper Replacement...

Allow 2 hours, I had mine off last year to clean out the intercooler.
It's relatively simple but make sure you locate and spray all the fixing bolts/screws the night before with WD40 or similar;
IIRC some of these are behind the wheelarch liner - 1/4" or 3/8" drive with extensions and hex bits is useful.

Hi momoe - did you get any photos while the bumper was off? Want to do the same to my car this year (I feel the need for a recon turbo!)

Fraid not, I suddenly had an afternoon free and went for it.
Other than the mud caked bolt and screw heads it was pretty straight forward, irritating that the intercooler isn't removable without removing the bumper though.
A simple removable section of the bumper would do it.
