YOu do NOT have to remove the front bumper or the side skirt.

You only have to pop the front part of the side skirt loose off the fender.

The front bumper stays 100% in place. There are only two bolts the go from the fender into the front bumper and they are easily accessed when you remove the splash shield

Those two bolts have to be removed to take the bumper off anyway.... No the bumper does NOT have to be removed. there are 4 bolts that go thru the bumper and fender. They are easily accessed once the splash shield is removed.

There is enough room in between the fender and bumper to get a wrench or ratcheting wrench in there. You can also just unbolt the bracket that that bolts to, from the car itself.
