MG MGF Technical - Front Bumper wont come off!!!!

Hi everyone!!!

Eager to get everything ready for MGF 10 i decided to finish all of the bits i never got round to putting on!!.The bright grill kit on my F, did the side vents nearly a year ago, never got round to the front grilles.

Tried it and the front bumper wont seem to come off, I have undone the screws at the top under the bonnet lip, and the two bolts behind the indicators

Am I missing some more??????

Need to get it done tomorrow as off all day!!!!

yep,behind the wheel arch liner there are two each side, one of each locks into a slotted hole, meaning you can slacken them rather than remove them - which makes refitting easier.

Say goodbye to the skin on your knuckles ;-)

Check through the archives, only a few weeks ago I listed what to do bit by bit when I replaced mine. Look under replacement grilles or something like that.

If you are lucky (or unlucky as it goes) you might be like me and only have two of the screws under the wheel arch to worry about as the others have fallen out!

Adrian's sent me his pictures, but until I put these together as a set of instructions, see Tim Woolcott's instructions on bumper and headlamp removal - it shows all the relevant steps:

Good luck!
