Are there any clips/brackets/etc. on the sides of the bumper cover? I was
looking around in the place where the bumper cover has come loose on the
right side, and saw these little pieces of plastic that looked like they
held the bumper on. Just trying to make sure I don't forget anything.
Thanks for the help.

want to see about what it would take for me to replace the bumper cover and
headlight assembly myself with the help of a mechanically able friend. Has
anyone out there done this? If so, about how long does it take and what
exactly - tools and steps - does this involve? Does the Haynes manual cover
this subject at all, or am I gonna have to spring for a Bentley manual? Any
input is very much appreciated.
