Here is how to remove the front and rear bumpers on your Vw Corrado G60. If you have any questions you can leave a comment.
Looking for more useful hints and tips like this? View the Guides & Resources page.
Removing the bumpers from a Corrado is relatively straight forward, but the front bumper bolts can be confusing, and actually cause problems if you don't know which bolt secures which part.
The confusion with removing the front bumper comes as there are several bolts, all securing different parts. Only four bolts (2 either side) actually secure the bumper bracket to the car. In the image below, you can see the two bumper securing bolts circled Red. These are the only bolts (4 in total) that you should remove to release the bumper bracket from your Corrado.
The Yellow circled bolts (2 total / 1 either side) secure the cross member to the car, and in turn the Blue circled bolts (2 total / 1 either side) secure the engine carrier to the cross member.
If you were to remove the Red circled bumper bolts, and then proceed to remove the Blue circled bolts, the engine carrier (With the full weight of your engine) would drop, not good! If you were to also remove the Yellow circled bolts, then your cross member would also drop.
NOTE: The rear bumper is just two bolts either side.
NOTE: Always ensure your Corrado is securely placed on axle stands, with added protection from wheels or similar placed under the floor.
NOTE: You should NOT drive your Corrado without the front bumper and associated bumper bolts attached.

Removing Corrado Front Bumpers
- Once your Corrado is safely secured on axle stands...
- The first thing to remove, is your front splitter bolts (x5 of them). The splitter itself does not need removing, but the bolts (13mm) run through to the cross member. You will clearly see these bolts when under the car.
- Now you can proceed to remove the two Red circled bolts on either side as pictured.
- Now the bumper bracket is loose. Pull the indicators sideways (Towards the outside of the car) and unplug/remove them.
- Remove the fog lights by undoing the philips screws, the screws differ dependent on early/late style Corrado (More info will be added).
- The front bumper is now ready to be pulled away. As you pull the bumper away from the car you need to do it in increments while you pull the inner plastic arch liners around the bumper sides.
- Once the bumper has pulled past the inner arch liners, it will pull clear of the car.
