Question about Cars & Trucks
I was rear ended at about 10 to 15mph what damage do I check for. Bumper trim has split
Check that the boot lid sits right and does not slamming to close.. Check for space around the boot lid is even all the way around to determine if the panelling as been moved . Check the area around the bumper mounts and check for wrinkles and signs that normally flat sections are bent.. Check that the area where the bumper is close to the body that the paint has not been bruised or damaged.. Check tail light assemblies are still fitting correctly in the holes . Best have an experienced panel beater have an inspection as they are trained to spot blemishes from accidents.

removing takes about 5 minute refiting the back bumper will take about an our to refit the rear bumper if your using power tools
the easiest way to do this is tank some white nail polish mark 3 lines on the mounts on both sides this will give you a guide to placen back the bumper to vehicle

SOURCE: corolla 2003 rear bumper
Many thanks for this solution, I got it a bit wrong and don't know if it makes any difference, the Corolla is actually an 04, and its British... any ideas.

is it a rubber bumper? use suction cups, thats what dent specialist use instead of takin off the entire bumper. use a winshield dashboard suction cup for example. Just be creative...

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect any other wiring that may be attached to the door. Then you need to pull back the weather seal and then you can disconnect the screws and clips that secure the outside trim to the door.
