    A3 Sportback (8P2) rear bumper and light cluster removal??

    Hi everyone... after reversing into a tree at my folks last weekend I've managed to source a replacement bumper and near side light cluster. Going to attempt the removal and fit myself as I've heard it's not too difficult, just a little fiddly?

    Anyone got any advice, documents or list of tools needed etc? Any help here would be really appreciated as its the first body work job I've done on the car.

    I know I have to remove the torx screws from inside the rear wheel arches, do I have to remove the wheels to do this? as they look pretty hard to access.

    you will need a torq bit driver (cant remember size) and a 10mm box spanner to get 2 little awkward nuts off.

    It is fairly easy to do and the bumper will be of in an easy half hour.

    I used the info at the bottom of this how to.

    I done mine last week, so give me a shout if you have any questions
