    easy stuff mate

    all you need is a torx drive screw driver

    1) open the boot lid and remove the trim that goes across the lock catch by removeing the two small trims on each side.

    2) look between the exhaust tail pipes for a screw,undo that.

    3) now go to the rear wheel arch's you will see a load of screws on the inner arch cover facing towards the rear of the car,remove them

    4) now slide the bumper off

    easy...:icon_thumright:

    Legend!... it really was that easy, the bolt above the exhaust was a bit pesky though!!

    Last question, The velcro type tabs for the trim ontop of the bumper.
    Is there a correct way of making these work? as the trims a bit flappy now.
