Removing 05 Rear Bumper

So i did try searching for this beforehand on the forum, however all the links on the forum to either the manual scans or a video someone made are broken and dont work anymore. If someone doesnt mind linking me with the instructions of how to remove the bumper, that would be appreciated. Thanks!

There are some youtube videos that shows you how.

Pretty simple. IIFC 1 screw on each side of the bumper by the wheel and 2 10/12mm bolts when the trunk is lifted. They are cover with a plastic tab that pops out with a flat head. Just pull afterwards.

For the screws by the wheels, do i need to remove the fender lining or the wheel at all, or are they easily accesible?

No on the fender liner. The wheels may get in the way, but you can either remove the wheel, find a long thin Philips head, or jack up the car enough to fit in a Philips head.
