Front Bumper Removal?

I checked the DIY Topic and could not find this. I am wondering how difficult is it to remove the front bumper from a 2007 compass. Actually, I think that it is called the 'bumper cover' as all of the underlying metal is intact. I had a deer-strike a couple of weeks ago. The damage was extremely minor. It pushed in the far front corner of the vinyl bumper cover (passenger side) and blew out my passenger turn signal. I ordered the turn signal, now I either want to repair or replace the plastic bumper. Suggestions?

You may find other issues. The A/C subsystems are stashed in one of the Compass corners. I don't remember which side though unprotected.

Thanks for the heads-up and the quick reply. The insurance company tells me that they will cover any hidden damages...if found later. Unfortunately, however, this does not answer my question. Is it tough to get the bumper off?

From my experience with vehicles. I picture it wouldn't be too difficult. Just gotta find all plastic plugs/clips and screws when removing the cover. They all should be along the edges of it but with the bumper cover being so large there maybe more hiding through out it.

That's one thing I don't like from a repair view, the Grille being molded to the bumper.
