    Default Can you remove an XP/VXR rear skirt safely?

    Hi all, is it possible to remove an XP/VXR lower rear skirt from a damaged bumper to fit to another bumper? Is it bonded on or mechanically fixed, or both?

    Thanks.

    Spoons can answer that but IIRC (I don't have the vec now), The SRI insert unscrews and drops down. When I enquired about one from teh VX performance centre, they said the car needed to be fitted with a VXR skirt.

    with the bumper off warm up the inside of the bumper where the skirt is fitted to soften the glue up and using a stanley blade carefully cut through the bond and it will start to peal away from the bumper you will need to do it in sections
