This post will result in a series of posts with instructions on installation of a facelift front end (bumper/fascia) on a nosecone Model S. Thanks to Doug Pasini of Automotive Concepts in Timonium, MD for doing this work while I shot the photos. Part I. The first (this post) will focus on removal of the nosecone bumper. Part II. The second will concern transfer of the fog lights, vents, and other components from the nosecone bumper to the facelift bumper. Part III. The third and final post will focus on mounting the facelift bumper on the nosecone Model S attachment points. First, here’s a list of the Tesla parts needed to do the job: A new facelift fascia/bumper (this comes unpainted and costs $415.00) The following parts are also needed (estimated cost is $300-$400) Part Description Part number Quantity T BADGE SUPPORT 1062472-00-E 1 TESLA BADGE “T” FRONT 1056386-00-E 1 SCR, M5-1.8x14, SCKT PAN WSHR HD,TORX,SST 1006533-00-A 2 FRONT UPPER GRILLE BRIGHT TRIM 1065233-00-C 1 EDGE CLIP, 6x20 HOLE, 14.5x1.3 RIB 1062645-00-A 4 BLT HF M6x1.00x18 [8.8]-D-ZnAl-W 1006529-00-A 4 SCR ST WSHR M5x20 ZnNi 1012809-00-A 9 FASCIA SUPPORT BRACKET - LEFT 1061331-00-B 1 FASCIA SUPPORT BRACKET - RIGHT 1061332-00-B 1 BLT HF M6-1.00Xx20 [8.8] ZnAlW 1009420-00-A 2 PALNUT TYPE-SD M5x10-15 1009338-00-A 2 FRONT FASCIA UPPER GRILLE COVER 1057847-00-C 1 FRONT FASCIA GRILLE COVER - RIGHT 1057850-00-B 1 TOW HOOK COVER 1057845-00-B 1 SCREW-M6-1.0x18.5,5 LOBE EX TORX 1055832-00-B 2 CLIP, M6,BUR100015 1013802-00-B 2 TOW HOOK 1060646-00-A 1 Part I. Removal of nosecone bumper Removal of the nosecone bumper is actually quite simple but will require one or two helpers when all of the attachments have been released or removed and the bumper needs to be taken off the car. 1. Remove the right and left hand side snap-out frunk liners 2. Remove the clips and pry out the top piece over the nosecone 3. Remove the two bolts holding the right and left side bumper tabs to the frame 4. Remove the two small screws in the right and left wheels wells that acnhore the bumper to the wheel well 5. Remove the 10 plastic clips holding the bottom of the bumper diffuser to the underside of the car. The photo below shows some of the holes where the ten clips that attached the bumper bottom to the underside of the car. 6. With an assistant, work the bumper loose where it attaches over the top of the wheel wells and remove it from the car. Be careful to unplug the parking sensors and any other cables attached to components on the bumper. The photos below show the fog lights and vents on the back side of the bumpers as well as the grille. These will have to be removed for transfer to the facelift bumper. More on that in the Part II.
