Removal Of Rear Bumber

Need to get rear bumper off for respray as black strips are pitted. As far as I can see there is only 6 screws, and numberplate, and then bumper pulls off.
Can someone confirm this before I start.

From memory there are

couple of scrws that hold inner plastic arch to bumper
either 2 or 4 bolts/screws from underneather the bumper (side sections, then I think either 4 or 6 from inside the boot, and then another 2 or 3 from the top on the rear section

Re: Removal Of Rear Bumber

It's a bu**er to get to the ones behind the inside of the boot wall material. 1/4 - 1/8 of a turn at a time on 2 of them but worst thing for me was one of the bolts on the boot carpet and you really need to remove it. After 2 hrs of sweat and swearing had to saw off the n/s one. A major part of the bolt is exposed to the world and had seriously rusted.
Rest of the job was easy really.
Now for the front one......
Good luck
