Removing rear bumper bar on EA

I know this is a technical question but this is the place where is will get answered quickest

How do I take the rear bumper of an EA? I assume then the tank just drops out once the straps are undone?

Re: Removing rear bumper bar on EA

undo the 4 bolts on the inside of the boot under the carpet and also take out the screws where mudflaps would normally be and the just slide the bumper off. did it on my EA about a week ago.

You'll have to remove the tow ball, and yes it slides off.

get a different one. if its saging then its most likely the plastic posts the bumper bar iron screws into have broken/breaking off. also the plastic clip on each side end could be stuffed. just get one the same colour as the car, thats all i did when i changed my EA to have the grey band around it.
