Depends what car you're talking about sunshine. We'll have none of these assumptions around these parts. 

Regardless of what car it is, just let Pebbles do a lap of a track in it, he'll have the bumper off in no time.

I seem to remember there are two 10mm bolts which need loosening but not removing under the wheel arches once you've moved all the arch liners and water bottle out the way. The thing slides off forwards for sure, I'll see if I have any pics...

Yup, couple of bolts underneath and the weird roller things at either side:

Don't think so, mine was a P1 but I managed to install a Nissens rad and new hose without removing the rad. Dunno if later models were different.

Its really not hard mate, sounds much harder than it is. As Owain says, its just a few bolts. 

IIRC you can slide the Rad in behind the slam pannel without removing it, and should be able to access the lower hose without removing anything. 

Heres a not overly helpful picture.

I dont like making people tea/coffee. So my trick is to not drink mine, then when someone asks for another I say "I haven't finished mine yet, if you want another you'll have to make it yourself"

Are the fans fixed to the rad or the slam panel ? I have no arch liners fitted after a small off roading incident so that helps

The fans clip onto the Rad, which sits in 2 recesses and possibly has rubber grommits holding it in place depending if its been off before.
