    Hi folks, gonna be removing my rear bumper to fit the s-line diffuser soon.

    Is it an easy job to remove the back bumper?

    Can anyone offer any advice or a guide on how to do it? How many screws etc?

    really would appreciate some help,

    thanks

    Sorry should have said it's a 2008 a4 b8 saloon. If you could send the instructions to sduk @ hotmail . com that would be great.

    Thanks very much. Had a check there and don't seem to have the email yet.

    Does anyone know if it's an easy job? I'm hoping the diffuser is easy enough to clip out

    From my Witter towbar instructions......

    Remove Bumper
    Remove boot floor mat and side storage boxes, remove the plastic nut inside each wheel arch
    beneath light clusters, remove the rear plastic panel and the plastic grommets to reveal 1 nut each side, remove nut
    taking care not to drop it inside, remove the 2 torx head fixings securing the luggage strap retainers.

    Remove the fixings along the lower edge of bumper and the screws around each wheel arch.

    As you pull it off you need to flex the wheelarch part outwards a little.

    Its a 2 man job, before you start, set out a cloth to put it on.... or put it on the lawn.
