    Removal of Rear Diffuser HELP

    Hi I was wondering to change the rear diffuser do you have to remove the rear bumper too? Just purchased a diffuser and am hoping it's relatively simple. I'd rather try and avoid taking the whole back bumper off if possible!

    Did you get sorted? I need to take mine off to get painted, The body shop are quoting 4 hours labour for removal and refit, if I can take the diffuser off myself I'll do that to save the cash

    Thanks

    Yeah I managed to get it off eventually, found a walk through guide on the internet somewhere! It's a bit of a fiddle as both headlights have to come out too. Think I used this post. Not the link but the walk through which is posted on there A3 Sportback rear bumper removal... - been a while since I did it but well worth it! image.jpgimage.jpg
