Re: HELP! Fiat Panda front Bumper removal

I found some good instructions on this forum when I needed to get mine off but from memory.

Open the bonnet and remove the plastic grill (mine is a 59 plate with the revised grill though) which reveals I think four bolts you need to remove.

Under the front bumper (lie on the floor) I think there's four or five bolts. Remove these.

Then under the wheel arche I think there's another one each side.

Undo the under wing protector (front wings) and get a torch. Look under the wheel arch liner to the very front of the wing. On mine there's a bolt I had to remove (one each side).

After that it just drops off

It wasn't difficult so you may have found all this out by now.

Phil
