    How to remove Mk3 Astra rear bumper

    Sorry if this has been asked before, however I couldn't find anything relating to a mark 3.
    I need to reaffix my rear bumper, which is currently very loose as I believe some of the clips are broken. So that I can see what I need to get, I'd like to take off the rear bumper and have a look.

    How do I actually do this? Not something I've done before so don't want to do anything wrong if I can help it!

    Also, it's a Mk3 Facelift (I think that's what they're called - the slightly newer shape (95 onwards)

    Thanks in advance

    its a ph2 astra chap,

    To remove the back bumper remove the black load trim (as you open the boot look down and you'll see it! using a torx (forget which size!), behind there is 2 nuts, undo them.

    Then go into the rear arches and there will be 2 13mm screwbolts each side to undo, after that simply pull off, just dont forget to un-plug the number plate lamp!!

    Thanks very much for this - I had seen the screws but I thought they need some specialist screwdriver!
    I'll have to keep my eye out for a Torx set - so thanks for that
