Rear bumper diffuser/insert removal

Post by Stevie1982 »

Quick bit of advice. Looking to remove the non colour coded part of the bumper to have it sprayed gloss black by a local body shop. Anyone able to tell me how it's fixed on. I assume it's just clios/tabs or are there screws as well, if there are anyone tell me the rough location of the screws before I break something by simply trying to tug the thing off

Two screws on the underside at each end, then just pull.

There is 2 bolts one on each side and 2 trim style poppers on each side if i remember rightly, literally right underneath easy to spot.

When you pull it off be sure to pull it OUT away from the car not DOWN as most people tell you too, if you pull down you will end up bending the clips, pull it towards you and it comes off very easily.
