Thumbs up How to remove bumper

Hey guys,

I painted my back bumper but the company I used didn't reinstall it correctly because there is a gap between the bumper and the body of the car. I want to remove it then re-install it myself. Please post steps or url on how to remove the bumper.

Thx.

Ryan

I dont recall there being a DIY on the rear ever posted? If i remember correctly. there is 1 screw in each wheel well (there is a small notch cut out of the bumper (close to where it ends and meets the body in the wheel well) and like 2 clips on the underside by the spare tire well area and like 4 or so when you pop the trunk. Then it should just pop off

You need to take it back to them and have them fix it right. Why risk messing it up..if they F*** it up, its on them..not you!

CJITTY - You're right and I've done that, three times in fact. They finally got the paint right...this problem I can manage so I took the easy way out...I'm going to try it myself.
