I have a 98 Jeep Cherokee and installed a tow hitch this past week. In order to install the necessary support plates with mounted nuts I had to remove the bumper.

First I unscrewed the two screws located at the bottom of each of the plastic rear fenders. The panels (fenders) are then freed by tapping them upward as they are secuted with slots mounted to the body.

WIth the fenders removed, you can now reach to the two mounting bolts which secure the bumber to the frame. They are about 6 to 10 inches from the side of the bumber towards the center. Remove both of these bolts, then release the two bottom bolts and the bumber is free. Be careful not to break the plastic splash guard which runs along the top of the bumber and fastends to the body below the hatch.

Besure to spray the bolts with a good penetrating oil to help free them up before you strip the heads.

Good Luck, hope my experience helps you!

How can I replace rear bumper?


Plastic buttons(they break) hold this on mostly, Top and bottom. At the fender wells you will find screws/bolts you have to remove. Nothing is hidden. Follow the perimeter of the bumper and you find the buttons and screws. To easy.

Rear bumper on mazda mpv


Removal of the rear bumper on an Mazda 2004 to 2006 MPV.
It's afairly simple task: 1) Open the rear hatch or (door) remove the torx screws at the bottom of the weather strip. 2) Remove both tail lights by unscrewing the two phillip screws on each light, once removed the lights pulling toward the side of the van. Let them hang from the wires. You will see a clip (white in color),pry it out from behind the bumper material and go to the next step. 3) Remove three 8mm head screws in each fender well and three plastic clips. Then remove an 8mm screw at the top corner of the bumper against the rear fender. If your car has splash guards remove them as well. 4) Remove the two clips at the bottom of the bumper attached to the under carriage. 5) Pull the bumper toward the back of the vehicle be careful with the tail lights. Remember, they are hanging loose.
And that's it, you have done it.

Remove the rear bumper


Removing Prowler Rear Bumpers First remove the four 10 MM bolts holding the trans cooler and drop it down. Support it by attaching one bolt to the lower hole on the cooler frame. This will keep the weight off the lines. This takes two min. and allows easy removal of the elect. lines. Then remove the four bolts on each bumper. The bolts are 13MM and 17MM. You will need a ratchet, sockets, extension and a 13MM open end wrench. If you remove the rear bumpers, you should replace the rear pan with one of the aftermarket ones otherwise you will have big holes staring at the people behind you. Go to prowleronline.com and check the vendors for a couple of options. Maybe you are removeing them to paint and reinstall. Look at this link for some options .. Mine is the 7th post down. http://www.prowleronline.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/014949.html Hope this helps.
