Question about 2001 Acura 3.2CL
It is pretty simple once you get started. First you will have to remove the beauty cover in most cases. The plastic cover that conceals the true bumper on most modern vehicles. Get under the rear bumper,if you jack the car up always be sure to use jack stands for safety reasons. There are clips that you can unfasten usually using a flat head screwdriver. Remove these gently and save them. They can be damaged very easily and can be expensive. Sometimes these can also be held on with aluminum screws and with plastic phillips head screws. After the cover is off you will see the bumper itself and by getting under the bumper you will see where it is attached to the frame. Unbolt the bumper from one side to the other and save all parts. Also some vehicles have light fixtures in the bumper - you will need to disconnect these as well and save every part. If it gets complicated make some type of system to keep organized. There is nothing worse than having parts left over! When you get to the last few bolts the bumper will start to hang and I recommend you have someone help hold it up until all bolts are removed. You don't want it to fall on you of course. After it is removed get your replacement ready to install and just do everything in reverse. Be careful in the last steps with any clips you use because this will make the difference between a "professional look" and just so-so. Make sure you have all tools handy - have plenty of room and plenty of time to do the job - take your time and you should be successful and save a ton of money. Good Luck!!!
