Default Removing front bumper on 2001 SLE.

I need to take it off to have it painted properly..

Do i need any special tools to do it? Do i have to worru about any air bag sensors?

What is the proper sequence of removal?

Any help would be great and pics even be better..

Thanks..

While I've never done one, I do have the exploded parts diagram to go by.

It looks fairly straightforward. You'll have to pull your lower deflector off, as well as the two reinforcement brackets on the left and right ends. From there it'* just misc fasteners below and above.

as willwren said.. most bumper cover removal is pretty straight forward, i dont have my service manual handy, but i can give you a procedure later on if someone else doesnt chime in first
