How To Replace Front Bumper Cover 2009 Mustang?

Can anyone inform me about the removal and replacement of the MUSTANG 2005-2009 front bumper cover? I would like to know if the grille must be removed first. Is the job difficult?

Not difficult, about a 20-25min job...
And best to have another person around.

I had to take mine off acouple months ago to replace my headlights.

"Front Bumper-2 10mm nuts on each side under the fender (4 total), 2 10mm bolts on the top. the radiator cover has to come off. screws down the side of the bumper near the tire. turn signal bulbs need to pop off. Now, the front turn signals are held in by a special bracket with 2 rivets on each bracket. Drill these out to remove the bracket to place on the other bumper or whatever you are doing. You can use more rivets or bolts with lock washers and nuts (that's what I did)."


Hope this helps

Thanks for the video. This is a lifesaver. Now I am assured I can do it myself, thanks to you! JOHN.
