Step 1: Lift the hood and depress the tab that releases the front grille.
Use the screwdriver to depress the tab. Once the clip near the radiator cap has been released, you can remove the grille.

Step 3: Remove the four Torx 20 bolts on each side to completely remove the bumper cover.
Step 4: Disconnect the parking light from each side of the bumper cover.
