It depends how small your hands are! I used to loosen the bumper fixings around the wheel arch and pull it down slightly but it's very tight! Unless you've done a few (I did loads when I worked at a Toyota dealer) it's probably faster and safer to remove the bumper! ;)

is it just the fixings in the arches mate...none on front wing or front of bumper to loosen ?

If my (failing) memory serves me correctly, if you undo the bumper screws in the wheelarch and push it forward off the big clip. You may have to loosen the screws along the top of the bumper too. Sliding it back on the clip can be tricky though.
