hey

How are you , if you have a basic socket set with larger sizes its a peace of piss.

open boot lid

remove carpet and what ever else.

From memeroey they changed the b/bar brakets from being straight forward to stupidity and so on.

They the brackets are locatoted on the side of the chassie rails remove some rubber bungers and hey presto there there their., 9/16 or somthing like that , and just for fun a 10 mill bugger around the side above the mud flap,,

and just to make your day there are some werid arse brakerty with some pop rivrots that are joined to the spaer wheel well....

When i was in the motor trade , i got out in 99 , we were a repair shop for Hertz and every second falcon had to have the rear b/bar removed as they do..

As for the rear tow bar dependes on what make and brand and whom fitted it , be careful of wires and the like

Id give a tow bar shop a go and see what the price is shorliy it can not be that bad .

any who see how you go.

thanx for your help. I dug up some past threads on removing bumper bars. I am no way merchanicly minded and have never taken the bumper off before. All up it took me two hours. Would have been a lot eaiser if some1 else was home giving me a hand to hold the nuts while i undid them so they wouldt spin. Anyway 2 hours later an theirs no sign of a towbar.

That leads me to my next thread. The towbar is a heavy duty Haymen Reece. The square one. All nuts and bolts included. If your interested let me know how much. I better check wat their worth.
