Anyone know how to remove the rear bumper on a A8?
Removing bumper cover
â Unscrew bolts from underside of cover -arrows-.
â Unscrew hexagon bolts -arrows- from wheel housing liner -1-.
â A further nut -1- on each side has to be unscrewed on inside of side panel.
â Release fastening strip in side panels (left and right) â Chapter and pull cover slightly off vehicle to rear.
â Right fastening strip is released by turning clockwise; left strip by turning anti-clockwise.
â Unplug all connectors to electrical components and detach cover.
Always ensure compliance with torque of 1 Nm on installation.
Worm gear of fastening strip will otherwise be damaged, thus considerably impeding bumper removal.
â Before fitting cover, check that round grommets -1- and oval grommets -2- have been pressed into side panel as shown.

I removed the bumper.
What are you doing with it?
You can just make out a cable going from the left rear vent and cross the top of the bumper/Tow bar.
I was trying to work out what that was and had to take the bumper off.
Turned out it was the tracker's aerial.
Wow you arer a curious chap aren't you. Lol
