These instructions are for the Euro model but very close to ours (thank you Forge!) and work for most people

Ocampo - I struggled with this myself a few months ago. It is actually very easy.

Basically you just take the obvious screws off the top and bottom - the there are two hidden screws at the very top of the wheel arches - they are very hard to see without lying ont he ground under the front looking straight up. Once these are out you pull straight forward and the clips at the left upper corners will let go.

If you haven't figured it out yet PM me and I can help.

fyi, the screw that is in the wheel well at the very top is at a weird angle, so be patient. once it is out, you pull firmly on the bumper (dont worry there are no more bolts/screws around the headlight) but the bumper is held with clips and they may break once you start pulling. i broke one on each side but the bumper cover still goes on and looks like nothing has ever been done to it.

Ill make a DYI. On all the parts I install and post on YOUTUBE for everyone .. We should be doing this for each other anyways if not already done.. More people are visual learners and plus pics or video help so much more.
