1996 EL Falcon Bullbar removal

Hi guys,

I'm new here and I've tried doing a search so forgive me if I'm about to ask a stupid question.

Anyway, question is as follows: I've just bought a 1996 EL Falcon GLi which has come with (according to the second and previous owner) a country pack. Is it difficult to remove the bullbar that comes with it and replace the front bar with a new one (sprayed to match of course)? Are there any problems caused by doing this (eg airbag sensor)?

If anyone could help, I'd appreciate it - the car is great and I'm enjoying it (my first Ford, just migrated from a 82 Gemini) but the bullbar annoys me a bit (the headlight beams are slightly obstructed by it).

TIA,

Hunter.

G'day Hunter, I haven't really looked into it but I think it bolts on via the standard bumper bar mounts, so removal is the same as a normal bumper. Not sure on the airbag sensor on removal (my ute doesn't have one) however if you are putting on a new bullbar make sure it is airbag certified.

Cheers mate, looks like I will go ahead and put a new front bar on it (without the bullbar though). Appreciate the help.
