Av recently had to replace the front headlight and washwipe unit on my 2003 s40, sport lux,

due to some one reversing into it and driving away, a was wondering how the front bumper comes off

you have to undo 4 x 13mm bolts from underneath. and 1 x phillips screw on each side where the bumper meets the wing. thats it as far as i can remember. also be careful when taking off to unplug foglamp wiring etc if its there.

wasn't to sure how to get it off, as the car has a plastic belly plate, cant really see much from below the car,

Yeah loose undertray + low car + deep snow= bumper ping off like a rubber band. It travelled alot further than it did in the picture lol. Luckily it went back on fine as only one of the clips had sheared.
