    Anyone have any guides or instructions on removing the front bumper cover on a Model X? Have a broken parking sensor that I'd like to fix myself.

    Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

    I am interested in this as well for the same reason--my front bumper was bumped and one of the sensors seems to have been disconnected. There are good guides for removing Model S front bumpers, but I couldn't find anything for Model X...

    I wonder if you can access the sensor by removing the 2 frunk liners.

    You might have to remove them anyways to remove the bumper.

    Which sensor are you trying to access?

    I am trying to access the proximity (ultrasonic) sensor on the passenger side that is about a foot from the front license plate (i.e., not the one near the edge of the bumper). Thanks for suggestion, I can ask a Tesla-authorized body shop if they can be accessed on the X via the frunk.
