Safety Tip:
Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or closed toe shoes.

1
Remove the bumper cover from vehicle. To do this, use a door trim panel tool to loosen and remove all the clips that are holding the bumper cover onto the vehicle. The vehicle may have screws holding the bumper cover on- these will need to be removed.
2
Remove the energy absorber by pulling on the center of the energy absorber.
