Help removing front bumper

New to the forum and BMW with a purchase of a ‘18 540. I live in an area that does not require front plates. The car came with a front plate holder. I need to remove the front bumper to plastic weld the holes full from behind, bondo, putty, paint and clear. Before I jump into it, I have been searching for a “how to” to remove the front bumper. It seems like there are screws in the wheel well, but what else? Also I have parking assist and has cameras/sensors up front. Will there be codes thrown if I disconnect them when I work? If that’s the case I may work on it by bondo bumper repair as they are small screw holes. Understand that many will suggest a bumper plug. Not the look I am going for.

Thanks for any help!!

can you post a pic, but i don't think you need to remove the bumper to remove the holder.

Sorry, the holder is on with 4 self tapping screws than a simple screw driver took out. I was Ted to get a how to or diagram of how the bumper is fastened to the body or tips. I don’t want to take off the 4 screws in the wheel well and then the bumper flops off breaking tabs.
