Pulling the Car Apart

I'm just trying to work out how to get some pieces off my car so I can put on the new ones I picked up from Ford. Can anyone tell me how you remove (ie - where the bolts are) the following parts:

Front Bumper
Corner Indicator Lights
Door Handles



Madness takes its toll... please have exact change.

For front indicators, just remove the 4 bolts (2 at the front, one on the inside-side and one to the rear of the light assembly) that hold on each headlight, unplug the looms at the back and it should all come out easily and be self-explanatory from there.

After removing the door trims, removing the handles is a matter of getting to the fiddly bolts on either side that hold the handle on. I happened to have a perfect-sized, small spanner that made it much easier.

Not sure about front bumper.

For the front bumper the lights will need to be removed, then there is 1 bolt under each guard and 2 or 3 in the middle from memory.

Be careful with the bumper somtimes they dont want to fit back on properly.
