Instructions

  1. 1

    Park the Audi TT on a level surface and set the parking brake. Place a wood block behind the rear tire to prevent the vehicle from rolling.

  2. 2

    Lift up the front end of the vehicle with a floor jack and place two jack stands, one next to each front tire under the front axle. Lower the vehicle so it is resting on the jack stands.

  3. 3

    Disconnect the cover on the top of the water bottle near the front of the engine compartment by hand. Detach the battery cover on the driver's side of the engine compartment near the front, removing the plastic pegs with a flathead screwdriver.

  4. 4

    Take the plastic cover off the front of the vehicle by hand and locate the six Torx bolts on the front bumper. Disconnect the Torx bolts with a Torx bit and socket wrench.

  5. 5

    Unfasten the two screws underneath the front bumper with a Phillips screwdriver. Detach the two bolts---one on each side---in front of the tires in the wheel wells with a socket wrench.

  6. 6

    Pull the bumper down carefully and locate the Torx screws inside the ends of the bumper. Remove the Torx screws with a Torx screwdriver and lift the front bumper off the Audi TT, setting it aside.
