Hey, I'm looking at fitting a front splitter and the company I bought it from have suggested the front bumper needs removing to fit the splitter? Does anyone have a general guide on what screws to remove in order to do this on the FR facelift model? I have previously partially removed either side of the bumper in order to change the fog light bulbs so I definitely know which screws need removing from the wheel arch area. Many thanks!

Is it a company called TRC? I fitted mine without removing the front bumper I also have a FR facelift... I bought some strong double sided automotive tape of amazon guided the splitter so it all lines up the tape holds it in place make sure it's all level as the tape is very strong then drill through the pre drilled holes on the splitter then put self tappers in worked for me nice and solid.. oh jack car up makes things abit easier....

Yes it was TRC! That's good to know then! Have you got a link for this tape at all? And did you use the fitting kit that came with the splitter at all? Thanks for the reply!
