Hi kent a,
Most people will tell you that you have to remove the whole front bumper assembly which I think is a mamoth task not to mention the risk of damage to it.
Part 1 Under the car. What I did was remove the plastic tray under the engine,then with a long philips screwdriver remove the screws holding the front skid plate.
Part 2 Under the bonnet, Open the bonnet and remove the front grill then un-bolt the radar sensor and put to one side, this will expose a hole large enough for your hand to gain access to the two screws holding the number plate panel.
It can be quite difficult reaching the screws, I found a small philips rachet the best.
I found this method the best but I do have a garage with a pit for working under the car.
Good luck --you will need it.

Great thread - lots of subtle mods and a lot of thought gone into them. Covering the hinges and the LED interior lights make the car look so much cleaner and modern.

Very nice looking car. Looking to buy the 2019 facelift. What can you tell me about the LED lights? How's their performance. And also, is it true that you can't replace the bulb, and that you have to replace the whole headlight? Thanks !

Thanks all. The Vitara is long gone now and I’ve gone back to a swift Sport. I do miss it though.
