    Hi people

    Bought myself a new lower rear bumper trim with the two openings for the twin exhausts, had a go taking the old one off yesterday and got a bit stuck and didnt want to break anything.

    So far i can see there was 2 screws in the back of the rear arches on each side, 2 screws underneath the bumper. The front of the trim pulls off easy enough until i reach the corners for the rear of the car section and from looking at the new one it seems to be just a row of lots of clips, but couldnt see how i release them and wasnt comfortable giving it a good pull in fear of breaking something.

    Can anyone tell me how i can get this part off? is there some knack i am unaware of?

    cheers

    Hi Mate,

    We've recently done this on an A3, so guess it's about the same...., if you get underneath with a slot screwdriver and a light, you should be able to see a run of plastic clips and slots, every 125 to 150mm or so. You need to carefully, from the inner side of the bumper, tease these open/ apart and have someone pull from the other side. Take it easy though, but once you get three or four out, it should become easier. Take a lot at the part you've got to replace it with and you should see these tabs of plastic. Post a pick up so we can see if not the case..
