Default How to on front bumper removal for 06 PT ?!?!

Hi I'm a newbie on this forum have owned my '06 PT Touring since 2007. Recently I parked to close to the sidewalk curb and when I went to back out my front bumper got ripped off just like this guys below. I want to remove the front bumper and replace it myself did a search but could not find a walk thru on how I would go about removing the front bumper. I'm not to mechanically inclined so a STEP by STEP with pics would be greatly appreciated. Hope to start moding her once I get more familiar with this site and how to use it... Thanks in advance for all the input and help...

Well, first you Google in "PT Cruiser Front Bumper Removal". That should get you a list. On the list, you'll see a You Tube How To. The guy in the video is actually replacing his headlights--however, he is first removing his front grill (that's real easy), then the front wheels, then the bumper, iself.

Just ignore the headlight removal and installation part, and concentrate on the bumper.

By the way, don't do this unless you have jackstands! A jack, only, can kill you.

Also, removal of the wheels makes it easier to get to the wheel well liner ....
