hi
in my time of takin front bumper off it is a 17" or 19" socket or spanner you may need to jack your car up and support it on axhel stands then undo i think 4 nuts&bolts should take any longer than a half an hour to an hour maybe you should consult your owners manual also to locate were the nuts&bolts are,
Hope this help how ever little happy

In theory, there should be two bolts going from the bumper's 'cross-member' into the body and bolted on with nuts, and it's screwed in tight around the wheel arch.

In reality, you'll have to jack it up, and put the car on axle stands, and take the arch linings off for improved access. You may need to break your arms in a few places to get them through the maze of coolant pipes etc.
