Five push clips in the top (pop the hood to see them) and one nut up in each wheel well. You also have to take the wheel well liners off and the air dam underneath

no need to disconnect the battery. take the push pins out of the top of the bumper that are by the hood latch. also take the push pins off the air dam and remove the fender liners. unplug the fog lights. there will be two bolts at the bottom of the front fenders that you will have to remove then the front cover drops off. also there will be 2 black plastic screws behind the front plate that you have to remove once the cover is on the ground that holds the foam in it. patch paint and reverse steps to re install
