    Removing bumper cover

    – Unscrew bolts from underside of cover -arrows-.
    A63-0166
    – Unscrew hexagon bolts -arrows- from wheel housing liner -1-.
    A63-0167
    – A further nut -1- on each side has to be unscrewed on inside of side panel.
    – Release fastening strip in side panels (left and right) → Chapter and pull cover slightly off vehicle to rear.
    – Right fastening strip is released by turning clockwise; left strip by turning anti-clockwise.
    – Unplug all connectors to electrical components and detach cover.
    WARNING
    Always ensure compliance with torque of 1 Nm on installation.
    Worm gear of fastening strip will otherwise be damaged, thus considerably impeding bumper removal.

    Cover grommets
    – Before fitting cover, check that round grommets -1- and oval grommets -2- have been pressed into side panel as shown.

    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.
