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.

Directions to install witter towbar on ford focus


Towbars are fairly simple, if the towbar fits the frame, you are all set, if it doesn't, you have the wrong one. If there are holes that line up, use them, if not, you can drill through the frame very easily, it is soft steel, Put some bolts in there that go through about 1/2 longer than the frame parts. Support the towbar with a jack, make sure it stays put. Drill a small pilot hole first with about 1/4 inch bit, then go to the hole size of the towbar, 1/2 inch. Those step bits work great, put in the bolts, tighten them up, all set. As far as positioning this thing, I would make the ball stick out just past the bumper, if no hole line up. You don't want to be smashing the trailer into the bumper all the time, so make sure it is enough, but not so much that you trip over it. Hope this helps.

I want to fit a towbar to my ford focus hatch 2008 model. What is involved in removing rear bumper Regards Brian Lamb


Pop the Hatchback open and remove the connectors
from the top of the bumper cover.

Optional Step: Using a Floor Jack, raise both sides
of the car in the back, supporting both sides with
jack stands, and remove the rear wheels.

Using Torx Bits, remove the inner rear wheel well
lining.

Get behind the rear wheel well and loosen the bolts
holding the bumper brackets on. They're pretty
difficult to find and remove. Be Patient. Do the
same to the other side.

Remove the rear bumper cover by pulling the cover
outward from the part nearest the wheel on both
sides. Once removed, take off the 2 black mounting
brackets from the bumper cover.

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.

Can you put a towbar in front of the mustang


If it is automatic then would suggest no doing this. When towing with rear wheels trailing the driveshaft is still turning the tailshaft of transmission,< rear wheel drive > and without motor running the transmission doesn't circulate fluid to cool it off. if it is the only way to move it for you without a trailor then it's best to remove driveshaft and use a car dolly to tow. If it is standard then driveshaft is not does'nt have to be removed. Either way a dolly is what you need to tow it, < towbar won't work > and old school chain or strap can damage fron bumper shell.
