Removal of rear bumper

I am going to fit a tow bar to my car but it appears that I have to remove the rear bumper to do so. I know it is only screws but is there an easy way to do it?

What is a towing eye? Where is it located?


Many cars have a "towing eye" located in the boot, that you screw into either the front or back of the car to tow it. It is a long bar with a thread on one end and a circular end on the other. The car with most likely have a small panel in the front and rear bumper bar that you remove, you then insert the threaded end of the towing eye and screw it in until it stops turning. If there is no panel in the bumper bar, then the location will be under the bumper bar somewhere and you will need to look for it. It is designed to avoid damaging the car when you tow it.

Install tow bar


You can get a DIY kit easily. There are 2 basic types out there, one which mounts outside the rear bumper and is visible just below it, and one which mounts behind the plastic bumper and is not visible except for the tongue. This however requires fitting by removal and replacement of the plastic bumper, and complete removal of the steel core of the bumper to make space.

Need directions to fit towbar and wiring on holden captiva sx (2007)


there is a standard tow bar and a 2000kg for genuine tow bars
you need to remove both tail lights,the bumper bar and reinforcement bracket, spare wheel and exhaust hangars on rear mufflers, remove the tie down bracket on LHS chassis rail(dont need this or the bolts that hold it on), so you can then bolt in place either of the 2 tow bars.
genuine wiring patch harness for trailer plug is my suggestion since its plug straight into vehicle and interfaces with vehicle, goes in right hand rear compartment remove lid then remove box, interface connector for trailer harness is there.
instructions can be printed out from dealers if you ask
some new kits dont come with instructions in kits because information is on dealer computers
there is a template to print out to cut hole in bumper bar for tounge area of tow bar, uses centre square dimple in bar but its a bit wider.

Saab 93 bumper removal


It depends on what year your car is,

If it's the pre 02 car then inside the boot there are 2 M10 nuts near the tie down eyes, remove these and then pull the bumper tips outwards whilst pulling the bumper rearwards.

If its the post 02 car then remove the torx screws inside the wheelarch 2each side, remove screw from bottom edge of bumper near to wheel arch each side, remove 2 plastic nuts from lower bumper near spare wheel well, remove rear light clusters then remove the screws behind them, unclip ends of bumper from bodywork and pull rearwards.

Romoving front Tow Bar...


Just have to remove the 3 bolts on each side of the bumper. Just move the rubber splash guards out of the way so you can see the bolts up under there. Make sure you use anti-seize compound on the bolts when you reinstall. You will probably have to adjust each side of the bumper bracket so it fits back on your Jeep, cause with the tow bar removed, there is a gap now.
