Re: 00 S70 GLT how to remove bumper covers (timvan)

3 rivits in each wheel well must be drilled out. After that only a couple of bolts hold each bumper on. Rear tires must be removed to get a straight shot at the rivits, for the fronts you obviously turn the wheel to each side<br>Obviously, you have to reverse the process when installing so you need access to a large plastic rivit gun.<br>You CAN paint these on the car, many of us do

I used a side cutter to cut the rivets, easier and wheels can stay. For fitting back instead of rivets I used stainless steel screws, just painted them over
