How do I remove the rear bumper on my 1998 chevy malibu LS?

I have a 1998 Chevy Malibu LS, the rear bumper needs to be replaced, has a crack and a hole in it from previous owner, I looked underneath and I am unfamiliar with the ''fasteners'' that hold the bumper to the car, How do I remove these to get the bumper off and put on the replacement bumper I bought?

SOURCE: how to replace valve cover gasket 1998 chevy malibu

The first step is to remove all the parts that are in the way of you being able to remove the valve covers. (Ex.: air intake, loose wires etc.) Then you will need to remove your valve covers (using basic tools) and be very careful to not let anything get on your lifters, which your valve covers protect. Once you have the valve covers off compare the new gaskets to make sure they are the right size. Then remove the old gasket and replace with the new one using a high temp gasket sealant (available at any auto parts store) to attach the gasket to the valve covers. Then tighten down snug and check for leaks after replaced.

Where is the location of the Fuel Filter on the 05 Chevy malibu LS

look in between the rear axle and the fuel tank right above the charcoal canister. It is usually easier to replace with the charcoal canister moved out of the way. You will need a 16mm and 20mm wrench to replace. Preferably a flair nut wrench for the 16mm.

Check under the vehicle, just forward of the rear bumper.

Also could download the Owners Manual in this link: Owner/Page/OwnerGuidePage
