1975-1975 Front Bumper removal
« on: September 21, 2021, 03:42:10 PM »
I'm looking for information on how to properly get to and remove the heavy front rubber bumper assembly on my 1975 Trans Am. Any information or  recommendation for a Body manual that refers to Pontiac F body bumpers for my model. I searched the internet but cannot find any info for these specific bumpers.

Are you wanting to remove just the bumper or the entire assy?

The Bumper is not installed correctly and the upper mount is broken, It sticks out too far and slightly downward so I am trying to get in there and see how to fix it.
I will need to remove the bottom valance and then remove the bumper (rubber and steel assembly) to see if it is bent at all or if it is an assembly issue.
