two bolts on top, one bolt on the bottom near the grill and that one tricky bolt on the side of the headlights!

No you dont need to takee off the bumper. It's really easy like rcfreak said two bolts on top, one bolt on the bottom near the grill and that one tricky bolt on the side of the headlights! You have to take off the grill and the little plastic pieces under the headlight

The Service manual says to take off the front bumper cover, but it's not necessary. Removing the cover makes getting that last bolt very easy, but it's not worth it. Do some searching on getting the 4th bolt out, get a short wrench or rachet and prepare to contort you hand in ways that your creator did not intend
