    Hello All

    I am thinking of replacing the rear plastic trim insert in the rear bumper of my 2001 S3. I think the part is 8L98073417DL and about £60. I'm wondering how hard it will be to get the old one off without damaging the painted section of the bumper?

    thanks for any advice

    It should just unclip from the inside of the bumper with out any damage to paint work, but I dont think the new insert will come painted so you will have to have it painted anyway.

    So to remove the insert you have to remove the entire bumper?
    If you have parking senses, have they got alot of slack in the wire or is it quite tight?
