Default Removing front bumper. YouTube videos donít show all steps. Need some help.

Iím in the process of removing the front bumper and have all the bolts and side marker connectors removed. Now the bumper seems to have various self locking clips that keep it in place. Where are they and how do I get to them? I havenít been able to find a YouTube video that doesnít skip this important step. Does a video exist that explains this part?

Not that tuff to do, just take your time. I had mine off in 30 mins without help.....you'll do fine.



The two 10 MM socket head screws are the worst ones (center of pic, next to each other with black holddown bar), extra long 1/4" drive extension worked for me; loosen one turn or so to take apart then tighten after you have the alignment correct when replacing it all. All the rest is a piece of cake.



1 1/2 hours total time....and that's taking time to clean everything while I was in the neighborhood.

Not a hoe hum easy job like some say it is. The two 10 mm that are shown in pic left of the head light Hold the bracket. Plastic tabs from the bumper cover slide down behind the bracket. So you will be pulling up and not out towards you. An extension didn't help me. Next time I'm thinking two swivels and a slim extension. Some of these brackets are put on tighter than others on different cars. I ended up breaking one tab out of two on passenger side. After passenger side tab broke I swayed the bumper cover out like a door I was then able to loosen the other side.

Default Camera connections

I'm in the process of installing the Z06 grill on my 2016 with cameras, but the wiring is a bit different, the original grill has longer wires, the Z06 grill has short wire coming from the camera to the connector and then a pigtail with a totally different connector.

The connector on the car goes into a wire loom, and then a similar looking wire and connector come out. any ideas ?? pics attached
