Its pretty easy, I am not sure if the bottom splash guards have to come off, but at least any screws into the front bumper cover have to be removed.

1. Take the front grill out.
2. take the headlight screws out, one on top, side marker on top side of headlight, then the side screw to headlight, 3 per side. Remove or swing headlights onto hood or place on ground.
3. Two bumper bolts on top of the inner crash bar, take them out.
4. take bolts out of inner wheel well liners to bumper cover.
5. Unclip bumper cover from side plates by releasing springs and then popping out of the clips. The bumper cover is held to the fender by a black box looking devise with a spring attatchment.
6. pull bumper cover with inner crash bar forward and off the car.
7. I can have mine off in about 15 minutes or less...

Here, this is a little better, I missed a couple of small things,

Good Luck,

John
