taking off u13 front bar
« on: Mar 7, 2012, 04:47PM »
ive had a look n honestly wtf
from wt i can see need to take off headlights and grille before removing the front bar
the headlights seem to have 1 bolt to the top of the rad support (which is fine)
and 2 inside near the radiator, how the hell do u get a socket set in there
n what other headaches are involved

or am i looking at it all wrong

Your spot on.

Grille off, headlights off, etc

Its not that hard, took mine off and straightened the reinforcement bar not long after a low speed bingle.

ok so pic one is the part of the body you need to remove the 2 bolts on both sides



once you have removed the grille and headlights, really easy job you need to undo the 3 10mm bolts down the side of the bar which connects to the guard



and a view from the top of the bar, with the lights out it is really a 20 min job
