Default remove/replace instructions 2016 GMC Canyon front bumper

Does anyone know of online install instructions for removing/replacing the front bumper on a 2016 GMC Canyon. I bought the black plastic number (GM part#22925741) and chrome bumper cover (GM#23405889)...but they came with no instructions. I know I can probably buy instructions, just thought if anyone knows of free instructions, that would be great.
Still think that you should get instructions with such expensive OEM parts.

I know this thread is months old, but i just bought a 2017 Canyon All-Terrain...

Not a lot of action on this forum! The Colorado guys are kicking our arse!

Anyway, I wanted to remove the air dam from the front, but all the fasteners are accessed from behind the grill. Appreciate the instructions above... I'm amazed at how much goes into just pulling the front =tricky!
