Looks like i'll be ordering a front bumper soon from the dealer, prepainted and all, and all i see are some rivets on the sides, no bolts or anything that are accessible from the bottom. do i just remove the rivets and start pullin? Somehow i dont think thats the whole deal.<p>Mine is also tweaked from a previous accident, hopefully i can get the cover off and straighten it out, its really annoying.

Re: Front bumper removal tips? (nextproject)

There are two long bolts in the middle of the bumper.<br>Do you really think it was held on the car by rivits in the wheel well? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>If you drill out the rivits and "start pulling", you will break the bumper!

hence the reason for the post. also why i said i didnt want to even attempt that, upon closer inspection and also reading a thread on VS it seems perfectly easy. im getting tired of staring at my nasty beat down front bumper.
