2008 ford escape. removal of rear bumper cover


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.

Good Luck

How to replacew a backup sensor on a 2002 ford excursion


It is very simple to replace the backup sensor. It is a good idea to put on safety glasses or goggles to keep dirt out of your eyes. The easiest way is to lay down under the back of the vehicle and reach up behind the the rear bumper and disconnect the pigtail electrical plug from the suspected faulty sensor(s). Then simply remove the sensor by pushing from inside of bumper toward the rear of the vehicle. If you are not sure which sensor is bad, and if only one sensor is bad, you should check one sensor at a time. And then with the good sensor in place you could test each sensor to see if the vehicle beeps while reversing towards a harmless object (like a traffic cone). Repeat this procedure with the other three sensors and leave the good sensor in place when the back up sensor system works correctly. Hopefully, this will FixYa!

I have a 2006 Ford Explorer and 2 of my park aid assist sensor are bad. They are in the rear bumper. How would i replace the sensors? Is it really necessary to remove the bumper?


You only need to remove the bumper cover. Remove both tail lamp assemblies. Under the tail lamps you will a 10mm and a 8mm bolt, remove these. Look into each rear wheel well rearward and you will find a T20 torx screw on both sides, remove these. On the top of the rear bumper, between the bumper and the bottom of the liftgate opening you will find 6 to 8 plastic rivets that can be removed by pulling the center pins out, remove these. At this point you should be able to lift upward and rearward and release the bumper cover. Once the cover is free you must disconnect the electrical connector to the sensor wiring harness. With the bumper cover on the ground or a bench, you will see 4 9/16" nuts that hold the styrofoam bumper cushion to the bumper cover, remove these. Now you should be at the point where the backup sensors are accessable. When you install the new sensors be sure your electrical connectors click when they connect. these connectors go on hard and if they don't click you will be doing this job again. Reassemble in reverse order.
Hope this helps

Accessing the rear hatch brake light on a 1999 Ford Expedition


There should be 2 screws holding the lenses on for the hatch light, remove those and cover comes off. The plate lights, access them under the rear bumper, they twist and pull out, then just pull the bulb out the connector. The running board light, under board, which will take the light assembly out, or a small flat head screwdriver, pop the lens off the top of board.

Rear bumper cover is loose on one side


The sides of the bumper slide on over a large pin to hold them in place. The easiest and correct way of getting it back on is to unbolt the bumper cover from the impact absorbers in the rear and slide the cover off by pulling it straight back. When you slide it back on, make sure the cover goes on the pins on each side before pushing it all the way back in place and bolting it back up to the impact absorbers. If you have been rear-ended then the tracks that these pins slide into may be broken. If thats the case you will have to replace the bumper cover
