Need help with Under bumper fascia removal


Recommended Posts

I want to install a Bull Bar on my 2004 Cayenne Turbo. Have removed all torx screws under the fascia and the philips screws in wheel well but fasica still in there tight. Saw a thread on the steel plate install and they spoke of a bolt in the back holding the fascia in but I see no other accessible screws or bolts to remove.

Any help pics or other would be appreciated!!!

I looked to see if fog lights needed removal first. I could find a single word in my manual on fog light or even fog light bulb removal. I did see the adjustment screw for the fog light but i did not see how to remove it. Thx so much for the diagram!!

The (service) manual implies to remove the fog lights but I would try to unplug them and see if any of the fog light bolts go into solid metal.

How are the fog lights removed?? Access is very limited. There is no front trombone to remove and the fascia is locked to the bumper in front and after removing the torx screws under the fascia I can pull it down a little to see the fog light backing but I cannot reach it. The only thing I see is a small hole in the fascia that allows a screwdriver to pass and adjust the beam position of the fog lamp. My main manual has good info on headlight removal etc but nothing on the fogs.

Wow, even the diagram is hard to follow. The first screw it shows is the one INSIDE the fascia. U have to remove all the torx screws under and the fender well screw to get at that. Then, it show a tab being pushed out on the front corner??? How do u get to a tab that is not visible? is the fascia supposed to rotate outward after the underneath screws are removed? Also it does not show fog lights being removed or even fogs in the fascia. Any tips on those points is much appreciated. Thx jk

Loosen or removing the wheel liner is needed on all Porsches to access the screws for the bumper/spoiler. One of the reasons the fit always looks so good IMHO.

You need to remember the service manual usually has instructions how disassemble everything - not just the part you want to remove. So if you haven't done it before you might end up removing more than you need to. For example: for the 911 Turbo spark plug change they tell you to remove the heat shield between the mufflers and the bumper. You don't need to that at all -- unless you were replacing that part. So, my advice is have a little patience and try to see what needs to be removed and what does not. Never force anything - anything that requires force is wrong and will likely break something else.

I can tell today's car are more integral than ever and I recently had to remove the front bumper, grills, and headlights to change one small hose at the front of the radiator. That hose replacement ended up being a 4 hour job. Patience is a virtue.
