    Probably too late for you now but remove the carpet/liner over the spare wheel well and on each side of the car should be visible 2 large bolt heads, one of these bolts will probably be hidden by the plastic trim that covers the bottom of the tailgate aperture.......
    Remove these 4 bolts and bumper can be slid towards the rear, unclip ends of bumper from their hanging brackets and lift bumper away.............
    Almost forgot, think there were a few torx-headed screws as well in the very ends of the bumpers (securing end of bumper to wheel arch plastic liner) that had to be undone before bumper removal could be attempted........
