Smile Removing front bumper (MG TF)

Hi
When trying to remove the front bumper i found five screws at the top of the bumper(just under the bonnet),two large hex screws on the front & 2 screws each side attatched to the black wheel arch protector removed all these but still attatched on closer inspec i noticed behind the black plastic wheel arch protector at the top of the bumper inside the wheel arch there seems 2 b another screw (1 each side) these seemed very tight to remove (couldnt get these off) are these the last 2 scews i need to remove.
What a hassle to fit a set of fogs

If it's the same as the F there are 2 screws behind the liner on each side, 1 right near the wheel arch that has to come right out and one nearer the front which you only have to loosen.

D'oh, , could have been worse though, could have been fitting them to an F. Not only do you have to take the bumper off but you have to cut your own holes :S

Thanks for the advice
Dont think there is much room to fit the fogs & mounting brackets ,from underneath,i also want to remove the front grill so think its probably easier to remove the bumper.(please correct me if im wrong cause id really rather not have to remove it)
