Step 1: What You Will Need
A few friends
Step 2: Locating the Bolts
*** Please remove the battery before starting this process***
Number 1 you will need to move it to access one of the bolts number 2 it is always a safe bet to disconnect the battery before starting any major repair on your vehicle.
These are the locations of the bolts that must be removed to remove the front clip:
2 bolts directly under the rear corners of the hood that go straight down through the fender.
2 bolts which are exposed when opening the doors near the top of the fender
2 bolts under the car where the fender meets the door
4 bolts behind the tire near the rear of the fender well (these are two bolts about 2" apart and they have 1/2" heads)
2 bolts that bolt the hood hinges to the firewall
2 bolts that hold braces to front of frame (these braces come through the radiator support and bolt to the top of the frame.
4 nuts/bolts that hold the bumper bracket to the frame (these are under the car. You will have to loosen the nuts out to the end of the bolts and then hit them with a hammer to release the bolts which are splined into the frame.)
2 bolts and nuts that hold the radiator to the end of the frame. Look down kind of behind and on each side of the radiator 3/4" headed bolts (you will have to hold the nuts for these bolts from under the car).
Be advised that where I say 2 bolts that is one on each side and where I say 4 bolts that is two on each side.
Also, after you remove the 4 bolts that are splined you should insert a pry bar and pry the bumper brackets away from the frame.
There was also one smaller bolt under the passenger fender on the rear that I also removed (not sure if that was needed but hey, I was there with a ratchet).
Step 3: The Rest of the Stuff
Radiator hoses (make sure to have a drain pan for the fluid)
A/C hoses (make sure to evacuate the system before doing this)
Wiring from the firewall (there is a wiring block that goes through the firewall just under the brake booster. There is a 3/8" in the center bolt that holds it on.
Vacuum hoses to the evap canister (drivers front fender skirt).
Wiring to the Wiper Motor
Wiring to the brake proportioning valve
A group of wires that run to the starter and ignition system ( I cut these because I am re-wiring the engine).
Transmission cooler lines (Again, drain pan).
Wheels and Tires
Step 4: Taking It Off
I think I got everything. If you perform this operation and find something that I missed please let me know.
