RE: Removing Front Bumper of Ur-q

85 ur-q still uses the allen-head cap screws under the little body-colored
caps in front. 85 ur-q does not however use the little caps in the rear.

Subject: 	RE: Removing Front Bumper of Ur-q

... actually I think the original poster's suspicions were right.  On
the earlier urQs the bumpers (front and rear) are held on by four
"socket cap" bolts with a 6mm hex head.  These bolts were accessed from
the outside of the bumper, and were located under caps.  I thought even
the euro bumpers were mounted in this fashion ...

I know that on my '83 urQ I find it quite easy to remove the bumper and
the plastic bodywork that covers the lower part of the nose and the
lower shrouds; after these parts are removed a lot of things become more
accessible ... perhaps not the power steering pump though ...
