I needed to remove the front bumper skin on my 2001 Acura Integra so that I could repair my front license plate holder and also recondition the headlights. Since this is a common issue on this car, I thought I would make a video showing how to do this procedure.
It’s not that difficult. Probably the biggest take away is to be sure that you remove the screws hidden behind the fender liner. Also be sure to use an impact driver when removing the upper retaining screws. Not a bad idea to soak them with some penetrating oil also.
Otherwise, a pretty straightforward operation.
If you want to see more detail on how I did my license repair, and headlight reconditioning, here’s a link to that video:
