bumper removal

hello,
I got in a little fender bender on my 2007 and the front bumper got slightly off centered. It is the plastic bumper.
I got underneath to try to straighten it out without taking it off but it wont work. Id like to take off the bumper to do it. does anyone have detailed instructions on how to remove it?
It looks like just a few bumper bolts to the frame, but Id like to be sure before I start.
Thanks

Wow, I didnt even need to take the bumper off....the bolts just needed to be adjusted in their slots for centeredness (is that a word).
It was the easiest thing I have ever done in my entire life. Haahaa.

BTW, I think that the positive camber look is due to the fish eye lens.
