basically, just go under the bumper, and remove all the bolts that connect it to the frame, and then remove all the tabs too. it shouldnt be much harder than the front bumper.

I thought the nuts were in the trunk behind the liner?
Hope I don't have to jack the car up to do this, but it's getting repainted so I need to have the bumper cover off here in the next hour or so.

its real easy. you gotta pull the interior out of the trunk and loosen up the bolts in there (4 total, 10mm socket) get the screws out of the wheel well (On the outside where the tire is, you need a stubby screw driver to get them out with the tire still on. they are a phillips head) and then under the car at the back of the bumper cover there are a few of them plastic push-pin type fasteners. pull them out and your done. its easy, shouldnt take no mroe than 15 minutes to do.

Just did mine to install new rear side markers and it took 10-15 mins. You can't screw it up, the hardest part is getting the 5 plastic push pins underneath the bumper. They are a pain

Friends don't let friends, drive rice burners.
