    I'm not positive on this one so you might double check. I have a 99 civic ex and my bumper comes off with like 6 screws and 5 little plastic clips. With the plastic clips, you just need to pry the middle of them up with a flat bladed screwdriver, not too far, just about 1/4" and then the whole plastic clip will come out. You guys just need to mess around with your car and you'll see where it is secured on. Hope I can help.

    taking the bumper off on a CRX (at least mine) is a pain in the ass. my screws are always stripped, and they are in there at weird positions. for the intake install, just remove the passenger side front wheel and take off that little plastic guard. this will be much easier than messing with the bumper.

    I had to remove both my front bumper and the rear bumper for the kit. Here's how to do it.......

    1. Remove the screws inside the wheel well, there should be 2. They will come right out easily with a phillips head screw driver.

    2. There will be a screw inside the grill somewhere that will be extreemely hard to get out. If your car has over 80,000 miles on it, I suggest
    drilling it out.

    3. There will be another 4 or 5 screws on the top of the bumper that will be just as hard. They will be completely rusted on, good luck getting them.
    Your better off drilling them all out and threading new ones, or finding another way to do it.

    Good Luck!!!!

    werd, get a screw driver/ 10 mm ratchet. there should be 2 screw above the tires, pull the splash guard up to get them, then unscrew the 5-7 screws where the hood meets the bumper, and get the 2 bolts holding it on underneath it--mine were actually screwed up from road rash, so they were easier to get off. just rip out the resonator, all the stock shit from the thottle body down, and put in the intake.
