Re: how to install rear bumperr
There are two ten mm bolts that hold up the two corners of the bumper followed by a dozen or so push pin type plastic clips remove the two tens and pull the centers out of all the plastic clips and remove the lower halves, the bumper then has a plastic bracket on each side that if pulled straight back will slide right off, as for the sheet metal reapir you can either buy a cheap bodymans slide hammer and drill and pull where it needs or if there is damage to the bumper rebar ( metal bar under cover) you can get a ratcheting "come along" and set the ebrake and chain the other end to a tree, and pull it that way .sounds like you may even be able to use a big sledge hammer and knock the trunck back out also -jeff

Under the rear wheel wells, along the edge near the back is a screw. There is one on mine but there be more than one. Remove the screws for each.
After this, pop the rear trunk and look along the edge of the trunk right where the trunk hood meets the trunk itself. There are three black plastic screws that hold the rest of the rear bumper to the frame. I don't know exactly how these screws work but they don't just unscrew - I had to pop them out with a screw driver instead of rotating them out. Once those are out the rear bumper will lift up and off. There are some hooks along the rear wheel well where you removed the screws - you need to lift and pull out these edges, then lift the entire rear bumper off from the middle of the rear bumper.
Once you've done this, it goes pretty easily. If you have no problem with removing the black plastic screws or unhooking the edges, it should come off in less than five minutes.
Rear Bumper: Service and Repair
Removal and Installation
1. Remove the LH and RH rear combination lamps.
2. Remove both the rear wheels and tires.
3. Remove the LH and RH splash shields.
4. Remove the rear bumper fascia clips and screws, then remove the rear bumper fascia.
5. Remove the rear energy absorbing foam.
6. Remove the rear bumper reinforcement.
7. Remove the rear bumper supports.
Installation is in the reverse order of removal.
the release cable is behind the rear bumper on the nearside below the tail lamp. if you remove the inner arch liner and heatshield for exhaust enough to get your hand up there to reach and pull wire as you cant remove bumper without openingthe boot.
This may sound odd but if you can put a small person in the trunk with a flashlight while you pour water in the areas suspected, they can trace the leaking area, believe it or not I used to use this method while I was a Ford mechanic. Otherwise, maybe you can apply clear or black silicone to the area or remove the screw or bolt and coat it with silicone and replace it.
If you're asking how do you change a taillight bulb, then follow this procedure:
Open the trunk lid.
Disconnect the connectors from the taillights (taillight bulb connectors are visible by looking inside the trunk at the back of the tail lamps.) There may be an interior trunk trim panel that you have to take off but in most cases its just a series of thumb screws that hold them in.
Brake Lights/Taillights: 21/5 W
Rear Turn Signal Light: 21 W
Back-up Light: 21 W
Rear Side Marker Light: 5 W
Turn the bulb sockets 45 º counterclockwise to remove the bulbs.
If you're removing the taillamps with the bumper off there are 3 nuts and screws that hold the taillight to the rear panel of the car that have to come off from the inside of the trunk. Remove the nuts and screws, then remove the taillight.
