ive removed the front bumper over 20 times what do u need help with?
you dont have to do any of that to change the bumper and for junkyards go to one where you can get it yourselfDid a search first, closest I could come to an answer is here. I'll admit up front to not being the best at using the search feature.
Have front end damage on my 99 Camry and I need to order a bumper, the steel portion of the bumper, and the foam for it as well, but have a couple of questions.
What is the correct name for the steel portion of the bumper that bolts between the right and left side of the front subframe? I hate going to a salvage yard looking for a part when I don't know the correct description for it.
Next question is concerning the airbags. I assume I need to disconnect the battery before replacing on the front bumper (steel portion) but don't know where the switch is for the air bags, or how to safely remove and replace the switch ,and not accidently deploy the air bags in the process. Glad I found this site, any help is appreciated.
The Haynes puts the two minute battery disconnect because of the airbag capacitor...
It keeps a charge for that length of time...because you never know.
You could be trying to jerk of that bumper and you could unleash the shear power of your airbags(because of the sensors not too far)...and they aren't a cheap replace.
IMO just unplug your battery to be safe...It can only help you!
But I must admit, jacking the car is just plain silly...the kind of stuff you can let go in a Haynes...
by the way...just unplug the negative plug that will do just fine.
