1M front bumper removal?

Does anyone know of a DIY specifically for the 1M? Is there a preferred method of removing the headlight washer covers?

Thanks!

Garage List
The headlight washer covers just pull off, they have small detents at the bottom of the covers that snap/clamp around the base of the sprayer... Attached is a photo of the cover off...the sprayer base actually lifts off the bumper a little bit and the cover snaps onto the base...

Good information, thank you. Do you know if the washers need to be removed before the bumper removal begins, or can they be disconnected after the cover is separated a bit?

You unbolt the bumper first. Then when you are ready to remove the bumper entirely, you have someone slowly pull the bumper away and you reach behind and disconnect the washer lines. They connect by a small blue clamp. They are easy.

The 1M bumper removal is essentially the same as the 135i except you have to unbolt the front section of your fender liner and have two screews bolting ur bumper to your fender instead of 1bolt on the 135i.
