How is the front bumper removed on my Fiat Ducato 04 model.
The bumper is coloured black and i am having it painted (sprayed) white.

If its anything like my people carrier there are screws at the side from within the wheel arch and to bolts underneath the number plate and a further 3 screws underneath the bumper and also there is a slide plate on either side.

What you need to watch is most of these bumbers are sprung on or off if you should hit anything harder than cotton wool.

Not sure this helps but may give some clues!!!

Any body else taken the bumper off?

A friend is going to paint it but cannot get the motorhome in Fords paint shop (in case somebody see's it / cash job ). Don't think anybody would notice, but he seems to think they would .

Lift the bonnet and remove the three self tapping screws holding the cover plate of the bumper, next remove the two nuts holding the top of the bumper, leave the bumper in place then remove the retaining bolts under the front wheel arch each side. You can now remove the bumper and paint it any colour you like.

Don't do it. We had ours professionally painted white 3 years ago, now it has chipped and flaked, looks awful as the bumper will flex as you travel and the paint bit by bit will come off. We are now selling our motorhome so have to find a way of getting all the white paint off it. Waste of money

Hi Tinkerbelluk,

Had the bumper painted over 4yrs ago now, it still looks as good as new. The paint used must be for plastic or you will get the problem you have had

unfortunately they neglected the plastic primer,

try steam cleaning or high pressure air hose,
trouble is it never all comes off

Ducato front bumper

Hi, I've just bought a new MH and scratched the front quarter bumper.
Spray shop can't get it in but said if I can remove the bumper no problem.
Is it as easy as I've read.
It's Fiat metallic black.
Cheers...

What year is your Motorhome? Ours is a 2004 and the bumper is easily removed.
