Here i come to the rescue!

Heres a picture of all the screw locations:

TO remove the bumper itself you dont have to split it like that, dont worry!

You need to remove screws from:

4 x in each wheel arch (number 2 in picture)

1 x either side up by the headlight (number 19 on picture)

3 x under the top grill (number 8)

1 x behind each of the lower covers (number 5)

4 x plastic clips along the bottom of the undertray (number 6)

1 x screw above the sidelight either side (number 9)

Then get a small screwdriver behind the washer jet covers and prixe them out a little, grab it and putt right out and disconnect the covers. then undo the screws in the hole attatching the jets to the covers (number 7)

From what i can remember thats all you need to take off to get it out. But scan the picture a little more to make sure. Ive only just put mine back on.

Thanks for sharing this it helped me loads, I did notice though on 1 side of my bumper there was a sneaky little screw holding it together to the front wing just under/beside the light, the only way I could get to it was to reach up from the underneath. but the picture above and explanation worked a treat for me, cheers ??
