How to remove the front bumper astra k

Post by Volcano » Wed Mar 21, 2018 6:21 pm

I will soon have mounted an irmscher grill on my Astra k
https://www.irmscher.com/uk/radiator-gr ... steel.html

My mechanic would like a guide to remove the front bumper (pictures, movies, paper or what else exists to see how to remove the front bumper) for how to remove the front bumper without destroying any plastic clips etc.

Irmscher has a pdf to install grill
It does not show where the screws and clips are on the front bumper
https://www.irmscher.com/media/custom/u ... .Stell.pdf

I can not find any on the internet that have removed it, are there any who can help me?
Please

I've removed my bumper a couple of times but have never wrote a guide. Itll be coming off again either tomorrow or Friday so will take some pics.

You can do it with the car on the ground just made it easier for me to have it in the air due to lowered suspension. First pic is looking at the arch liner with the front wheel removed

Hi Thank you for posting this,

Ive had someone hit into the front bumper (assume reversed into it whilst parked).

The bumper is now sitting out near the headlights, gaps on both sides and the clip passenger side at the top is broken, have you got any ideas before I take it apart? The paint doesn't seem to have nay major damage.

Thanks in advance.
