Front End Disassembly

Inspection_5 016This second phase of my disassembly strategy is set for disassembling the front bumper, valance, grill, headlamp assemblies, front fenders and hood.

Remove the front bumper to fender brackets, front bumper and bumper guards, my front bumper and guards were already removed so I skipped that step.

Remove the grill

and grill moldings so you can get access to disconnect the turn signal lamps.
