Ok, from memory-

You will need to remove/undo, not in this order

1. the forward (not the large one that goes over the wheel) inner guard, probably 4-6 screws either side.

2. two nuts/bolts either side inside the wheel well, at where the bumper mates up with the front guard

3. the two nuts inside, either side of the bumper scoop (where you can see the radiator).

4. any screws where the bumper attaches to the forward radiator cover/shroud.

5. the horn wires and if you have Auto climate control, the sensor. Both of these run into a common loom that joins just infront of the rad support.

I think I got everything.

I done it last week on my EF....

Remove inner front guard covers
Remove the cover between the top of the bumper and the rad support panel
Remove under tray (it screws to the bumper and the crossmember)
Undo the screws each side at the top corner of the bumper into the guard (very top corner of the bumper in the wheel arch)
Remove your front indicators and remove the 'spring bolts' from each side
Remove the 2 big nuts from each side of the front of the car
Disconnect the wiring and away you go!!

with removing the spring bolts, you might need a 10" extension for your ratchet to reach thru under the guard.
