7. Carefully push a small nylon wedge between the fascia (1) and the fascia guide. Insert a small flat-bladed tool into the fascia slot and depress the snaps one at a time and pull on the fascia at the same time to gradually remove the fascia.

8. Disconnect all electrical connectors.

I just looked at the body emblem package installation procedure for the first time. Pretty cool they just use an inline harness that goes in between the passenger side DRL and connector.

Thank you! I figured it was pretty much the same Volt locations as the 5th Gen. I had it off both of mine several times.

The front fascia is only held on by those bolts through the wheel well and the top? There is nothing underneath? Doesn't sound too hard except for the fact that it is pretty big to handle. I am assuming a two man job.

The pictures and links up above are wrong. If you do not remove the screws from the bottom lip it will all come off in one piece. In that case you would have to remove the 4 silver bolts in the underbelly pan.

I started by taking the screws (circled) that hold the bumper cover to the black radiator cover.

Next I removed the screws under the front lip (Circled) and the ones that hold the 2 small rubber airdam pieces on. The yellow circle you don't remove which is a rivet the holds a bracket onto the bumper cover.

Next remove the screws in the wheel well from the carpet liners. The 5th screw is directly above the wheel. I removed 5.

Now time to remove the 4 screws the connect the front bumper to the fender. the 4th screw is at the very top of the bumper cover. I got to it with a long extension and ratchet behind the hood shock.

Next remove the screw from the black plastic bracket near the side marker and loosen the other 2 screws in the bracket but do not remove them. The front screw closes to you remove. The very back one I had to you a swivel and a extension to get to it.

There is only 1 connector you have to unplug before removing the bumper and it is on the drivers side above the LED light stripe silver ballast.

anyone know what the little metal electronics module thing is there in those pics. I noticed it when taking pics of where the airbox snorkel leads to but couldn't make out any identifying writing.

EDIT: nevermind. Appears to be the HID ballast.

I sit a box underneath the front lip of the front bumper so when I removed the last fender screw it did not slid and fall. I done this by myself so it can be done with 1 person. Here are the last pictures removed.
