I've had a look at the bumper on my E6 but cannot see obvious nuts/ bolts to remove it. Any hints or tips would be appreciated before I give it the mandatory 'gentle' tugs.

Also quite chuffed that I have eventually used my overpriced, rear, aftermarket dealer fitted fog light tonight on the way to work. I now feel complete!!! Or is that a complete prat for paying what I did??

How much mate? Go on we promise we won't laugh.....much http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >
I was a bit p*ssed off myself the other day after fitting my fog light about a month ago. I went into Les Smiths and saw exactly the same fog light for £3.99 when I paid £6.99 for it in [email protected]!
As for the bumper removal I have emailed you the relevant extract from the workshop manual.

Is there anyone, that knows how to remove the rear and front bumpers for an Evo3?

I need to make an adjustment on the rear one as the right hand side is drooping a little http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >, and would like to make it align properly with the rest of the car.

As for the front one, I would like to get in the front to have a play [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >, also am thinking of spraying the chicken mesh on the front to have the Mitsi Diamonds, anyone done this?? I pressume it is something as simple as making a template then spraying !

Thanks All!

E3tra,
I am planning to spray my intercooler with the Mitsubishi diamonds when the weather gets a bit warmer. I would suggest you take the intercooler off the car so you can do it on a flat surface. That will prevent any runs and also overspray onto your car. The only thing I'm not sure about is how to prepare the surface prior to painting, all those little vanes are not very easy to clean!

Suggestion for cleaning your intercooler :-

Seal of the hose connection's , plastic bags with an elastic band work quite well , then immerse the intercooler in strong solution of very warm water and good quality car wash.
Half an hour and u shud have a bright and shiny intercooler after rinsing.

Yeah that should work, then a quick spray/brush with panel wipe and it should be ready for painting.

Why paint the intercooler when you could paint the wire mesh in front of it for just the same effect with half the hassle ?
