Yaris 2016 Bumper repair

Hello,

My girlfriend has had a small-ish accident driving her new-ish Yaris 2016 model. Large scratches, deformed and broken plastic, etc... as can bee seen from the photos.

The parts that need replacing are the (1) right panel of the front bumper, (2) the right silver strip, and (3) the bottom red part of the bumper.

The Toyota dealership has, as far as I can tell, quoted her £289 ($374) manual labor and £379 parts. I do not have a break down of the how much the labor is for the painting process for the parts vs. for the fitting. According to them it should only take "15 to 20 minutes" to remove the old and fit the new parts.

Looking into fitting these three parts in myself but unsure were to start. I have previously removed the front bumper of another car (Opel Agila) so I think I can manage. Tools and such I have/can get hold of from friends or colleagues as long as it is nothing too specialized.

I am hopeful I could get some advice here, in exchange for posting photos of the process for future help to other members.

Dos anyone have an idea of how many screws approx we are talking about? Is it only those 5 screws, I have circled in green, (covered by the black caps) shown in the last photo? Do i need to remove the fenders? What should I watch out for?

Thanks and regards
Alex

a simple metric set and a flat screwdriver to pull off the top clips and help remove the sides (screwdriver taped up to protect paint, of course)
