    which screw to remove

    This has definatly been answered before but guna try and get this done now and can find the thread. Fitting new wheels on sat and will rub on a certain rear bumper screw that i have heard some much about, after having a look i have removed the second screw up from either side but not sure if this is the right one. This is the one on the outside edge. Could someone please confirm this is the right one or point me in the right direction.

    Cheers

    you have to remove the screw that is right on the edge of the bumper where the bumper meets the wheels arch if you put your finger up there you can feel it

    There is only one screw that will possibly touch, where the bumper meets the 3/4 panel. I removed mine and trimmed the plastic around the screw just to be safe as mine is REALLY close!
