    2017 XE Rear Bumper Removal

    I'm hoping there is someone online now that can help me regarding the removal of the rear bumper of my 2017 XE.

    I've removed the screws from under the wheel arches and the two bolts from the valance underneath the car, and also disconnected the electrical plug under the right side but it still seems very fixed.

    What have I missed?

    Thanks,

    Richard.

    In the absence of anymore fixings you’ll probably find the bumper just needs a firm tug from the side panels.

    You still there Jimbo?

    I've just found another two screws (one either side) and removed them and now I have the sides unclipped but still it seems fixed by the inner lower corners of the rear lights. Any ideas?

    Regards,

    Found 'em!

    Two more bolts! Almost fell off once I took them out.
