I did mine without taking the bumper off, but half way through I was beginning to wish I had! Would have been a lot easier, although some of the bumper screws can be hell to remove!

I couldn't get my bumper off so i had to use a lot of brute force and ignorance in bending bits of grille out of the way so i could get a socket into the bolts.

The issue is that the aircon rad is bolted to the front of the main rad. You can either unbolt them (the fixings are accessed by taking the bumper off) or alternativly you can degass the aircon system, undo the pipes and take both rads out together.
