Passat bumper and grill

Removing a bumper cover on a VW is not really that hard. In fact its super easy. With a few basic tools, you can have the bumper cover off faster than you can watch this video. Why would you need to remove the bumper? In my case, I removed the grill and bumper covers to remove the headlights for a wiring repair. You might also want to remove the bumper on the way to putting the car in service position. Service position is used for jobs like radiators and timing belts.
