    Nope.

    Easy.

    Once you find the bolts under the numberplate, couple more on the edge of the wheelarch IIRC.

    It's only made more difficult if the M6 headed hex bolts have been rounded off. Two at the top are M6x17 , two fixed to the bumper support brackets are M6x25. Good idea to get some new stainless before you start. Give them a good spray the day before with plusgas. The support brackets are riveted and often rusty so worth giving them a clean up / paint / underseal before refixing the bumper.
