Sorry Robert, I am not a Volkswagen guy.

The best I can do is give you a link to a parts diagram for the rear bumper. Maybe this can help you determine what still needs to be removed.

you may want to try a guy named Collin Strickland on this sight. Is is a European/german guy and may be able to shed some light on your dilemma.

How to remove a bumper on a peugeot 308


I have just finished replacing the broken grille on my wife's Peugeot 308 (09 reg) wiuth the help of a YouTube video in Russian .... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-KxbwKnvJE ...not that I could understand what they were saying but at least you can follow what they are doing.

If attempting this, allow a good three hours which is what it took me as there are many bolts to undo and a knack of pushing and pulling fragile plastic lugs. Take your time.

Removal can be done without putting car on ramps as you will need to put the wheels on full lock to get at the wheel-arch liners.

Firstly, undo the various screws on the plastic tray underneath the engine which connect to the front bumper skirt. There are three main bolts with washers which are located half way back, one central and one each side.

Secondly, put the steering on full lock to give you access to the wheel-arch liner for each front wheel. Pull the wheel-arch liner back to reveal a 10mm bolt where the bumper meets the wing of the car. You will need a ratchet with a swivel knuckle and 10mm socket to get onto the bolt head. Undo the bolt and repeat on the other side.

Lift the bonnet and at the front edge you will see four black flat circles. Using a small flat blade screwdriver, lever up the centre and you can then lift up with your finger which releases the retaining plastic bolts.

Looking at the top of the panted front bumper where it attached to the front of the engine compartment, you will see several small slots along the width of the plastic which you can place a small flat bladed screwdriver into and push down gently whilst pulling the front panel forwards in a rocking motion to release the plastic lugs. The whole bumper assembly should then start disconnecting from the car. It is helpful to have a second person to gentle prise away the wheel-arch sections from the car body. The whole front bumper section should then fall away but be careful as the wiring for the front fog lights will still be attached. Take hold of the lamp holders and turn through 90 degrees to remove the bayonet fittings. Pull the bumper assembly clear of the car and place on a fabric cloth/mat to avoid scratching the paintwork.

Re-fitting is a reverse of the above.

How to replace vauxhall zafira offside headlamp


Hi

To replace the passenger side outside light on the Zafira is quite complex.

1. Remove the grill in the centre held in with four screws and tabs on the bottom. In my case two different bits were required, hex and star!

2. Remove the bumper at the wheel arch (two screws) having first moved the wheel out of the way.

3. Pull the bumper off its supports along and and underneath the light.

4. This reveals a screw that has to be removed before you can release the headlight housing.

5. Remove the THREE screws holding the headlight housing on top i.e. inside the bonnet.

6. Pull the headlight housing out, but just enough to gain access to the cap.

7. Remove the rubber cap. One quarter turn of the light housing will let it pop out.

8. Use a screwdriver to lever out the dead bulb and replace it with the new one, making sure to avoid fingerprints oil etc on the light. There is a guide to show you how it fits - a small narrow straight tab which fits next to what looks like (but is NOT) a small spring.

9. Reinsert the light. TEST IT NOW, cos you really don't want to do all of this again!

10. Replace the rubber cap and insert all FOUR screws holding the headlight housing in place. Reinsert the grill using the tabs and secure back in place with the FOUR screws (two different kinds).

11. Reinsert the bumper underneath the light and reattach to the trims under the wheel arch with the two screws for that.

And of course, none of the screws are all the same size... that would be far too intelligent wouldn't it!

You should be finished in about 30 mins, with practice!

Enjoy!!!

How do I remove the panel that hold the rear parking sensors on a 2001 S550?


There are six bolts from the bumper into the rear cross member to remove, accessible from inside the boot. You'll have to remove the rubber plugs to get to two of them. After that, remove the boot lining (that's the "trunk" lining if you're a Yank) and you'll see four bolts (two on each side) that secure the bumper by screwing downwards through the metal wing into the top sides of the bumper. Now go underneath the car, and there are two bolts accessible at the rear of the bumper, accessible from beneath. Now you need to uncrew a pair of 10mm plastic nuts under the wheel arch lining/mudflap and two which are behine the rear wheels. Fold the wheel arch lining away from the bumper and there's a screw in the very front of the sides of the wing right at the point where it connects to the wheel arch. remove these (one on each side) and the bumper will slide backwards and off the body. Voila. Piece of cake. Remember to disconnect the wiring to the rear sensors and pull the multiplug through out of the hole, carefully removing the grommet.

Re-fitting is a bit trickier, so use a couple of beer crates or boxes to hold the bumper up below the rear as you line up the tabs on the air exits and slide the bumper back.

How to Remove the Rear Bumper - BA Fairmont/Falcon


Firstly, you need to remove the rear splash shields from within the rear wheel arches and also the tail lights. Then remove the scrivets from the lover edge of the bar. Next remove the scuff plate at the boot opening and fold the carpet back. There are four nuts which hold the bar on, undo these and then lift the sides of the bar up and pull out. The bar has large clips on the side which hold it in place.

Saab 93 bumper removal


It depends on what year your car is,

If it's the pre 02 car then inside the boot there are 2 M10 nuts near the tie down eyes, remove these and then pull the bumper tips outwards whilst pulling the bumper rearwards.

If its the post 02 car then remove the torx screws inside the wheelarch 2each side, remove screw from bottom edge of bumper near to wheel arch each side, remove 2 plastic nuts from lower bumper near spare wheel well, remove rear light clusters then remove the screws behind them, unclip ends of bumper from bodywork and pull rearwards.
