Remove rear bumper - help needed!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I need to remove the rear bumper from a 59 Fox. I've undone the torx screws along the bottom and in the wheel arch. I've then removed the two hex head screws on each side that screw up into the body and also a hex head screw (that I'm not sure I needed to release) that screws into the body parallel to the ground.  The bumper won't release - it looks like theres something holding it about an inch from where the top of the bumper 'dips' for the boot opening. I've stuck my hand up there and I can feel something thats kinda triangular but there's no hex head. I've given the bumper a tug and stuck a trim release tool in there (both sides) but it's not keen on shifting..

Any advice, tips or hints? Thanx

Thanks Rich - I’ve only taken enough of the liner to get my rather massive hands into, but I’ll remove all of it - Thanks
