Can’t seem to find anything in the Workshop manual. Looks pretty straightforward yet always helpful to hear from someone who has actually done it or a diagram on what bolts, etc. to remove / location.
Thx in advance.

The real bummer is when you have a rusty one and the welded on nut breaks loose.

If you can get liquid wrench or something similar soaking on it for a while first, do it. I had to grind off the head of the bolt on the last one I did. It is hard to do that without damaging the bumper. However, if damage is not a concern, I’m sure it will be easier. Id carefully use an acetylene torch.
