Re: hi want to get more hp out of my alfa 146 can you help????
Bumper off procedure from memory...
Remove the two screws retaining the front grille and carefully (very carefully!) prise it off the car. It's retained by four push-clips and can crack if man-handled.
Remove the two nuts (may be bolts on most cars) hidden under where the grille was holding on the top of the bumper.
Jack the front of the car up about 5 inches.
Locate the four retaining bolts on the underside of the bumper (15mm I think) and remove and note locations of each.
Unclip the wheel-well plastic guard from the bumper using a screw-driver.
Push bumper forward 1" from each of the wheel wells... don't drop it!
Unclip fog light cables from the underside.
Pull bumper forward to remove.
Fitting is simple, but you will notice that the bumper has plastic 'runners' which go onto 'castors' in the chassis. Line up each of these (may need two people as it slips) and then try locate the underside nuts. Once located, install the top retaining nuts... and don't forget about connecting the fog-lights.
