Default Front bumper removal

Next question. How easy is it to remove the front bumper on my 2013 S80. I have a busted washer jet for the window, and the previous owner stuck the small white plastic flat to the bumper, but its since blown off. I have 2 replacement jets and 2 replacement caps, but I have not taken the bumper off before.

Worth noting the bumper is in a bad state of repair, not terrible but I do plan at some stage in getting it replaced and re-painted (friends who own a body shop are doing it for free for me) but not yet, so a few scuffs I can live with.

Anyway, just if anyone has any step by step to doing it, woudl be great.

Just curious... Why do you need to remove the bumper to replace the washer jets for the window? The washer jets for the window are underneath the bonnet. You certainly don't need to remove the bumper to replace those.

Headlight washers will require bumper removal, but not the window ones. If you need to replace the washer pump, that can also be done without removing the bumper. Take the passenger front wheel off, remove the arch liner and the pump is there (towards the front of the car, underneath the headlight more or less).

You might get to them by removing the under panel but I don't know how they are attached.

Well as mentioned in another post I purchased Tyne 2 headlight washer mechanisms as a replacement caps on AliExpress for next to nothing(about 25 quid all in) and after looking at the issue I was able to replace a tiny bit at the top and fix the issue in seconds.
