Question Replacing Header Panel, how difficult?

I'm going to be replacing the header panel on a 2000 GT. Will I have to remove the radiator and/or anything else major, or is it a fairly simple install? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

its really easy, just remove the headlights, then pull back the the fender liner and you'll see two nuts that hold the bumper bracket to the fender,loosen those. now remove the plastic screws from the vertical posts of the bumper. don't forget to disconnect your fog light harnesses.

you may need an extra set of hands here, grab the sides of the bumper and pull it away from the fender being careful not to scratch your paint and lay it aside. now you can remove the header panel by removing the bolts from both sides.

i may have missed a few things but that should give you an idea

It's pretty easy, just make sure you have a buddy to help you remove and re-intsall the bumper.

What happened to your old one? I just put a new one in a couple months ago, the tabs between the upper grill and headlights were busted...

My front bumper encountered a pole a low speed and was ripped off. I expected the bumper itself to have failed, but it was the header panel that snapped. The two places where you bolt on the upper section of the bumper broke and split. The bumper itself came out ok, but got scratched to hell. So, I'm gonna put on a new cobra r bumper and need to replace the header panel so I have something to bolt it to.
