no need to take off front bumper at all. just raise the car and take out the stock box thing out from under. it's REALLY EASY. just do everything on the instructions except forget the bumper part

You realy can't. You have to remove the stock box. Isn't that box bolted in and to get to the bolts I believe you need to remove the bumper.

I did mine just like that, and I've even checked my filter just like that.

nope, i get a little scratched up going for it, just bend the splash guard and wheel guard flap things back by taking a few screws out. you'l lhave enough room to get up in there with your ratchet...it's a squeeze! but if definitely works.

Yeah, you gotta take off the wheel. It's a hell of a lot easier than taking off the bumper.

Theres an article on front bumper removal. If you run into any problems feel free to ask. Believe me it's really easy. Just remove all the bolts and it should come right off.

If youre worried about damaging anything please don't...nothing will go wrong. Good luck!! And avoid puddles!!

if your going to be doing this kind of stuff, you should definately pick up a half decent jack... you won't have to spend too much at all.

I did mine the other day without taking the bumper off... one bolt was sort of difficult to get at, took about 90 seconds to get off instead of 15 but no big deal

No need to take off the front bumper. It's much easier to jack it up, take off the wheel, and remove the splash guards.
