This is a guide on how to swap the pre 97 bumper for a post 97 bumper. It would also be useful for just taking off the original bumper.

Step 1: Go to front of car.



(i know rust and stuff, gonna get a spray soon hopefully)

Step 2: Removing the Bumper.


(Screws are marked in red, sometimes there are extra screws in the arch)

Step 3: Its off


(out with the old, in with the new)

Step 4: Step back and enjoy


(Was a bit hard to get new bumper on would be easy with two people, or a newer car, mine is a bit bumped lol)

Cost: £49.90
Time: 1 hour

Simple really :) enjoy :thumbs_up:

It would be interesting if i managed to stick a rear bumper on the front....hmm thought it looked funny :laugh:


If you cant identify the front of your car from the rear, you should be allowed to drive lol

You forgot to mention/label the arch bolts, there are 2 on each side, one is visible about halfway down the front of the arch, the bumper overlaps it, the second is behind little covers where the bumper meets the plastic wheel arch, its a bit fiddly but you have to take them off.
