Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Rear Bumper Cover

The right rear bumper on the Taurus that we just purchased has a dent in it. The damage is limited to the cover only. How can I push the dent out from the inside? Can I use rubbing compound on the bumper cover to remove the red paint from the car that hit it?

    My paint flaked off a little at the back shoulders of my truck above the XTR lettering due to my tonneau hard top cover rubbing against it when I hit bumps on the road. How can I touch up the paint?

You would need to heat it up from behind to remove the dent and the rubbing compound should work as long as it hasnt penetrated your paint layer

Most dents can be popped or tapped back out, provided it has not crumpled or creased the metal.

Another good source of secondhand bumpers is a spoiler shop, might even find one the same colour if you're lucky.

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

Dented right rear bumper


If it isn't hurt too bad, put a heat light or heat gun to it for a few minutes, it might pop back out or if you can get up behind the damage, work it out with your hand while it is warm, wear gloves in case you get it too warm. About $650.00 painted and installed.
