Default How did you remove the Front bumper???

Anyone know how to remove the front bumper or where the bolts are that hold it on? I assume there are a few bolts in the fender-well and a few behind the splash guard but where else?

Any help would be great.

Not sure about SX but I assume it's the same as EX. 2 screws behind fenders on each side (front). Then there's sets of screws underneath the bumper all across. Also it then snaps out of place from under the headlights.

You also must take off the plastic screws and 2 bolts from the top of the grill in order for it to come off as they are attached.
