    I should be able to take down my 2000 Explorer XLT Ford bumper with these guidelines, but If you're not a very handy person or mechanical inclined, this general observation of taking down an Explorer bumper does not help a lot. It would be more constructive to explain the dismantling process step by step so that even somebody who does not have mechanical brilliance could follow the instruction and take down the bumper.

    the anchor bolts through the frame are loosen 1st
    that way the back bar will swing downward for easier removal

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

Need to replace license plate lights on 95 ford explorer. can't reach underneath the bumper. does the plastic assembly just twist off?


  1. From underneath the rear of the vehicle, grasp the lamp socket and rotate it 1/4 turn.
  2. Pull the lamp socket from the lens.
  3. Pull the bulb from the socket
  4. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
