Default Front bumper cover/fender removal

Is there a good how-to thread on how to take off a front bumper cover/fenders and front bumper support? I have searched all over and can't find very much on the topic. I need to replace my A/c condenser.

I know it all comes off in one piece & so you need two people.

It's in the Bentley manual. Two special tools required.

I don't recall what "special tool" you'd require.

Just get a set of torx bits and go to town.

Fender liners out, top of engine bay take'em out. Remove your blinkers, unplug fog lights, pull your headlights out.

And I think that's about it.

Lifts right up and out of the way.
Easier w/2 people, but no big deal w/just 1 person.
