How to remove the front bumper cover on a 99 trooper

Postby buckey99 » Sun Sep 07, 2008 5:43 pm

I goofed and posted this to classified. New member, sorry.

I have a slightly pushed in left front bumper cover. I was wondering how I can remove it and straighten out a bracket or what ever needs to be corrected. Thanks so much for any help. I am a new member and a new owner of a 99 trooper.

Until someone with a later model trooper chimes in, maybe this will help you.

I downloaded the graphic from the following site: http://www.myisuzuparts.com/

Really nice site if you're not familiar with it. Used primarily for parts numbers and illustrations. It was flagged to have been removed from the net months ago, however, it remains.

It has been 4 years since I had my 99 Trooper, but IIRC the bumper assembly comes off with 4 bolts at the frame rails, and possibly some sort of connectors around the sides to keep it from vibrating. You will need to disconnect the fog light connectors also if you have them. There is a thin sheet metal "bumper" under the plastic...whether you impacted the metal is hard to say, probably not.

Thanks for the help, the diagram gives me a start. If I can get the bumper cover off and see what is bent then fix I'll be in good shape. I think it's pushed in about 1 or 2 inches.
