how do you remove the rear bumper?

Someone reversed into my rear bumper yesterday smashing it to pieces. I managed to pick up a good second hand one this morning. Is it a hard job to replace the rear bumpers on these cars? Could anyone tell me or show me pics of what's involved, so that I can see if I'm able to do this without having to spend money at the garage

Many thanks..Nige

This is the best I could find to help you. If you do decide to do your install it would be helpful to report back with pictures if possible or tips for others. GOOD LUCK!

Thanks for that Rick, it's greatly apprecaited. When removing the plastic rivets, do you just push the centre "pin" through until it falls out & then retrieve the pins afterwards, or are the pins likely to get trapped inside the bodywork somewhere?


Thanks...Nige

I really don't know but if they are like the others used on the Nitro they pull out. Keep us informed on your progress and I'm sure you will save a lot of money doing this replacement yourself.
