1M Front Bumper Removal

I know there are a bunch of documents floating around for a 135i bumper removal, but I haven't really seen a DIY for the 1M.

I want to remove my bumper to fix an issue that the dealer caused with not hooking up a headlight washer nozzle. The jet is spraying under the car and likely the hose is not hooked up to the nozzle.

How difficult is it to remove the few bolts holding it on and the speading procedure for the fender to bumper connection?

Thanks
Robert

I bet its very very similar to a 135i, if so its super easy! BMW did a great job making the front bumper removal quick and easy. Only thing i wouldn't know how to do is the headlight washer cap removal.

its very straight forward and similar to a 135i bumper removal. only thing to remember is to remove the two or three screws in the wheelwell.

In my opinion take it back to the dealer and make him correct the mistake

Thanks,

I'm going to try it later. I was guessing a lot of guys had to remove it prehaps to install upgrade FMIC's.

While most people would return to the dealer, in my case, its like the facebook relationship status "It's complicated".

Its the same as the 135i bumper EXCEPT, the 1m has two screws in headlight bracket /bumper meets fender area where the 135i has one.

And it really helps to carefully look around with adequate lighting. Easy to miss the second screw in the dark.
