How to Remove Front Bumper 05-07?

I can't for the life of me figure out how to take it off. I'm not mechanically gifted and will end up taking too much stuff off and not know how it all goes back together. I removed the grill,removed the screws on the inside of the wheel wheels and now am stuck. Help!

There are screws under the grille, have to take out the headlights. 3 screws on each side on the fender on the inside, and then you have to take off the ones that secure the bumper to the fender liner. Headlight has an annoying screw on the side of it.

Thanks guys. I figured it out eventually. It was quite a bit of tinkering around to get it to come off.

I just replaced the bumper cover on my daughter's 2006 ZX4. You don't have to remove the headlights.

Open the hood and take the radiator cover and grill off which is two screws and two push pins. That takes care of the upper attachment.

You need to jack stand the front end remove the two front tires so you can get under the car for the rest.

Under the car take the black engine splash guard off. About six screws attached to the bumper cover and three push pins attached to the frame.

At the fender-wells remove two screws one torx head out of the bumper cover and one hex head out of the engine splash guard. Also remove the two front push pins. removing the push pins will help keep the fender-well splash guards out of your way.

Now on the passenger side you can see up besides the headlight there are three screws to remove (from the bumper cover to the fender). I had about a six inch extension on my ratchet to put the ratchet in a good place to use. Once loose there is a large push pin attaching the bumper cover to the fender. Pull the bumper cover down sharply and it will pull out of the fender.

On the drivers side there is a factory air box in the way. You need to remove the two screws and two hoses attached to it and pull it off of a grommet that it sides on. Get it out of there to get to the bumper cover screws. Once those bumper cover screws are out sharply pull down to pop the push pin out and then slide your bumper cover off. You should now have the bumper cover off.

We put a stock one back in place. She hit a snow pile back in March and cracked the original in several places. She likes the looks of it as is.
