Default Front bumper removal

Hi there,

I am very new to this site, but I hope that one of you fine lads can help me

I have an Australian 1996, Suzuki Vitara (Estate), 2 litre, V6 5 door wagon. It is officially an SV620VH - Type 1, with a H20A motor. It is the 4WD 5 speed model.

All I would like to do is to remove the front bumper. I have enclosed a picture to make it absolutely clear.

Many thanks.

As far as the grille guard goes, you're on your own. Should be self explanitary.

On the right and left of the grille, where it wraps around to the wheel-wells, there is a screw that attaches the grille to the fenders, remove those. Then there will be a screw in the center of the grille (check for others) remove it/them. The grille will then pop-out from the clips by pulling at the top from left to right. If you look closely you can see where those spots are. When pulling the grille out, take notice of the sides where it wraps around to the fenders. Those areas will hang-up. You'll have to gently pull outwards to get them out. Same each side.

Once that's done, there are a row of screws across the top of the bumper. Remove those.

It's damn near off now. I'm not sure about any other fastening points. Look all around; under, behind etc.

You shouldn't have to take the bumper covewr off,if you look underneath there shouls be one bolt on the outside of the frame,through the bumper bracket and another one through the top just behind the bumper.but you do have to take the grille out.
