I would expect you would be pushing it uphill to get it from ford these days......
Best bet would be to get on the phone and ring around... I think you will find they are no longer available... but you never know unless you try

I dont think ford will have the XE bumper...although as far as i know they still stock the chrome trim strip that goes into it...sell it by the metre i think??...

so if you found a second hand bumper but with rusty/missing chrome trim you could replace it!.

Although better check to see if ford still stocks the bumper and/or trim first.

You've got to climb under the back of the car and there's about four large bolts on both sides (under the tail lights sort of) mine had a tow bar so it all came off in one piece which made it an awkward heavy bastard.... but you'll manage.

You shouldn't have any trouble finding a reconditioner, get out the yellow pages!
