1. REMOVE REAR BUMPER PLATE LH
(a) Using a screwdriver with the tip wrapped with protective tape, disengage the 2 claws. (open the trunk and the are on the bottom corners where the trunk closes)
Tape the screwdriver tip before use.
(b) Disengage the hook and remove the rear bumper plate LH.
(a) Put protective tape around the rear bumper assembly.

(b) Using a clip remover, remove the 2 clips. (at the rear of the wheel well)
(c) Remove the 6 screws. (bottom side of the bumper)
(d) Remove the 2 screws.
then lightly pull to detatch the clips along the sides... i don't suggest doing this if you haven't before due to me seeing so many break the tabs.
sorry for the write up as i copy/pasted from the manual. if i can get the pics online ill post em.
