COVID-19 Coronavirus Message Updated: 27th March
Mail Order Customers:
  *
Our carrier DHL is operating normally across the world (including in Italy), with the exception of Hubei province in China. Allow an extra day for delivery, just in case.
  * We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road even if many of the parts manufacturers are now closing.
Workshop Customers:
  *
Following government guidance, we are open as usual. Taking your vehicle to a garage for repairs is a permitted activity (safety) as long as you observe the social distancing rules. We have no signs of illness in the company and are taking all precautions to minimise contact and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). Our mechanics wear gloves at all times and we will disinfect your vehicle with our Zaflora sprays on handing back to you. We would respectfully ask you to show our staff the same courtesy.
  * To help those in self isolation, we are now offering a free Collect & Return Service of up to 30 miles, so if you have any servicing due in the next 3 months now might be good time to get it out of the way without even having to open your front door. We will disinfect your car on collection and return.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30 March will be extended for half a year. However, you are still obliged to keep your vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition, so if you need to use your car in this period, it is still recommended to get one done.

Dismantling The Front Bumper From A MiTo 1.4 Multiair Turbo

You need to remove the bumper if you're going to replace the radiator, headlight or if you just need to gain access to another part.

Undo the nine undertray screws,

and the four T30 (Torx) screws underneath the front bumper.

Undo the screws at either end,

the three screws up the inside of the wheel arch lining,

and the the top T30 screw to the front wing on both sides of the bumper.

Pull both corners off of the clips.

Undo the four T30 screws along the top of the bumper.

Now support the bumper as you pull it forward to unclip the fog light connectors and it's free.

To remove a headlight undo the 10mm bolt on the side wing,

the one on the bumper support,

and the top one.

Pull out the retaining plastic pin,

and disconnect the connector at the back of the unit. If you're taking out the radiator then remove both headlamps.

If you now want to carry on and remove the radiator please go to 'Removing The Radiator From A MiTo 1.4 Multiair TB'.
