You gotta pull off yor grill and headlights to get to the top fasteners. Pretty easy to pull off though.

Re: How to Remove Front Bumper Cap? HELP Thanx

do you have to take the headlights all the way out to take the bumper itself off also? or just those side caps? Sorry Salstats didn't mean to high jack your thread just wondering.

I'm not too sure about that, I know you would have to at least take the grill off. Headlights come out easy though if you have to.

its kool hard12catch33. and on my old Titan when i dented the bumper i had to replace it. and i remember i didn't take the lights nor the grill off. so my answer would be no you don't. i just didnt know the camps could come off without the bumper.

Re: How to Remove Front Bumper Cap? HELP Thanx

I did the same thing a month ago on my 06. I saw the top fasteners and wondered how they came out. So out come all the tools and I start removing the head light and trim piece. It turned out if get under it and look in the right place you can see where the little fastener plugs push right out of the clips. Once you pop them out (you should have enough room on the top if you flex the trim piece up a bit or remove them all together) and then you can flex the bumper cap up and out of the mounting holes on from the main bumper assembly. It took me 35 minutes and the full head light disassembly on one side to figure this out. The second side took about 3 minutes to take off. I took both sides to the paint shop even though only one was chipped. It wasn't much more to have them both painted and this way they match. Hope this helps. Reassembly should be a snap too. Just line it up and push in the plugs.

My Winch install goes through how to remove the entire bumper. Maybe that will help?
