    help with replacing front bumper cover

    when i bought my car it had a bodykit on it. well long story short thanks to all the snow and snowplows on the roads i found a pot hole the size of a small crater. needless to say part of my bodykit isnt there anymore (which i was planning to replace anyways but thats not how i wanted to replace it).
    so i am buying a stock bumper cover from the subaru dealership here and was wondering is it an easy enough job to take the old bumper off and put the stock one on or would it just be easier to have the dealership replace that for me? thanks in advance.

    it's pretty straightforward... Just make sure to buy a bag of extra clips and plastic screws, in case any break on you....
    but yea should just be bolt off and bolt on

    Search the intarweb for a schematic for your year. There's always extra clips/tabs hiding somewhere.

    Replaced many of them...I suppose it all depends on who installed the old bumper cover and what he reinstalled/ where he cut corners...either way as mentioned mainly just clips... and the foglight connector harness' if you have foglights....What helps is to get the clips/screws that are in the fenderwell...**** the wheel so you have room to work....can easily be swapped in under an hour..
