rear bumper removal
« on: October 06, 2012, 08:29:01 am »
My Dad managed to put a dent in the rear bumper, the old bugger.....I think if I can push it out, its about fist sized. I already have scrapes so I am not too fussed about it. I cant quite squeeze my hand up to the damaged bit so will have to take off the bumper. I think I read thta this is quite simple, has anyone whos done this got any advice, (56 plate hatch)....Cheers M
