Yeah, he asks how to remove bumper fascia and headlights panel. I keep forgetting name to it, on GM products, it's a wide bracket spanning fender to fender and holding headlights in place.

OP, keep in mind, Buick used to practice hydraulic bumper shocks as main attachment points. Don't be surprised, if you take fascia, aka cover off, and find oil leaks in them. But far as I remebr from my Buick Century, it's all very easy bolt on stuff.

In my area...the smaller bodyshop guys are perfectly willing to help with advice if you approach them right. Of course my questions were simpler.

Before you go prowling junk yards, it might be worth your time to surf the web for aftermarket replacement parts. Some of them are quite reasonable. Found a grill, for instance, for $16.56; headlight assembly $25, bumper cover $57, fender $70.

I have just about quit prowling the wrecking yards . Most of the prices to DIY'ers is almost as high as new parts . At least in our area .

Look for a lot of screws , nuts and bolts , holding every thing together .

Best of luck ,
Wyr
God bless

First time a do any significant work on a new ( new to me ) car , I bite the bullet and buy either a Haynes or chilton book for the car . Last I looked they were around $ 25 ?

As I tend to keep a car a long time , it is $$$ well spent . Often there is something not well covered in the book I buy , I end up also buying the other , in hopes it will cover it .

God bless
Wyr
