Re: Replacing Front Bumper on 2006 Civic...
It does not look too diffiuclt, but I think it is a 2 person job. I have a gash in the front as well, and after reading both the service manual, as well as the HFP front poiler inatall instructions ( they show how to remove the front cover- down load the directions) it looks fairly easy.
If you can get Itunes podcast - college hills has a pod cast of them installing an Accord horn on a 2009 civic... there they show how to remove the cover. It is a professional in a dealers shop doing the work...but nothing exotic was done or used when I watched it.
If you can wait 2-3 months I may be able to tell you how my driveway job went.
