2014 FTC Removing bumper to replace outside temp sensor and wiper fluid hose

Hey guys,
I need to remove the bumper to replace the aforementioned temp sensor, and to find where my wiper fluid is draining out of. I suspect rabbits chewed a hole in the hose, but it could be the whole reservoir. As soon as I pour it in, it dumps right onto the ground. Anyway, how do I get the bumper off? I see no immediately obvious bolts, everything is hidden behind plastic.
TIA
Cheers

Re: 2014 FTC Removing bumper to replace outside temp sensor and wiper fluid hose

Hi. Did you ever get an answor to your question?
My bumper is loose on the passenger side and it appears that clips hold it in, but I am not sure. Only had the vehicle for a week and it started coming out and I need to find how to secure it.
I have a 2016 Ford Transit Connect XLT.
It is either the bumber ot the facia over the bumper.
Thanks.

R.S.Logan, Thank you for that page. I just can't make out the detail of how they attach.


Here is a picture of the fascia panel forward of the right front wheel.
It looks like these all snap into place but then there must be a bolt or screw to secure this panel.
Anybody having this problem?

I've never done one on that vehicle but looks similar to others models I have .It looks like it should snap into position . May require loosening / taking out side bolts first ( listed in link exploded view } , snapping into place and then refitting side bolts .Hopefully there is no accident . damage behind which could throw it out of alignment .

Never, never, never give up.

Thanks for that info.
I am looking for a shop service manual, but I will give it a go using the drawing you provided.
Thank you.

Well, I did it. Just can't pick up a wrench without knowing where it could lead so I went on to the Motorcraft site and ordered a CD/DVD of the Shop Service Manual for my TC.
Live by RTFM and die by RTFM.
Maybe I can share some info with someone one day.
