hey man! you're awesome, mtech 2 kit all around will be installed. You write up is very straight forward, thanks, i appreciate it! :clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:Hi the bumbers and side sills on your car are removed exactly the same way as the Mtech bumbers and sills.
The side sills are held on by a row of black clips at the bottom underside of the car, use a pair of angled side cutters to leaver the centre pin out of the clips then remove the clips from the sill. Grab the rear of the sill and gently pull away from the car working your hands along the top of the sill to help it pop of its top clips and thats it. When refitting make sure all the white clips are undamaged and lined up then just simply push the top of the sill onto the white clips, fit the lower black clips and secure with the center pins.
The front bumber
Turn your wheels full lock so that you can see the front of the plastic wheel liner, look in you will see a row of three small bolts remove them do the same on the other side. Now remove the small screws on the left and right underside of the bumber there should be two on each side.
You will notice that the plastic undertray is attached to the bumber with the same type of clips as the sills remove the center pins.
If you look either side of the number plate holder you will see two large-ish holes, use an ratchet,extension with a T50 torx socket to remove the main bumber support bolts, remove the bolts completely, you should now notice the bumber is loose so if you carefully slide it forward a little you will be able to disconnect the horns (on both sides) now completely remove the bumber
Rear bumber without PDC
Again look at the plastic wheel liner (at rear of wheel) you will see the same type of clip used on the sill, remove its center pin, just above this is a small bolt remove this now do the same on the other side.
look along the back of the lower bumber you will see two more holes once again undo the main bumber bolts with the T50 etc remove bolts completely now grab the bumber and carefully pull away from the car
If you do have PDC you can unplug all of the sensors X4 as you remove the bumber
When refitting make sure the metal clip positioned on the wheel arch is attached to the side of the bumber this clip helps hold the bumber close to the wheel arch
Thats it job done
...As you can see the bumpers guides will not fit on the bracket that is currently on the car.
I am waiting for the BMW dealer to open in he morning so i can call them , bu can anyone tell me if the bracket on the car is definitely different for the Mtech bumper, and also what other parts i may need to fit this MTech bumper?
