    Default Estate rear bumper protector removal

    Anyone know how to get the rear bumper off an estate (2007 SRi)? I would like to fit this Taurus T123P Parking Sensor but they don't have any bumper removal instructions for the Vectra estate.

    I have removed the trim in the boot which covers the lock (two Torx screws under plastic caps).

    I can see three Torx screws in each rear wheel arch and two clips underneath. It appears there are some (maybe four) Torx screws at the top of the bumper just below the tailgate opening, however these are covered by the bumper protector and I can't see how it is attached to remove it.

    Underneath looking at the inside of the bumper I can see what look like retaining clips but pushing them the bumper protector does not move. Don't want to break or scratch anything.

    I have searched this site and many others but can only find saloon / hatchback and Signum instructions.

    I didn't think you had to take the bumper off the estate to do this? I could be wrong but I thought they were lower down and easy to do from underneath?

    Have found torx screws and removed trim.

    Found some spare screws located underneath obviously left from when put together.

    Just had sensors fitted to my 07 sri estate if you want them in the bumper itself there is not much room behind it and it does have to come off. I did read in the forums that people had fitted them in the black strip on the bottom of the bumper you dont say if yours is a sri.hope this helps

    Apologies for the delay in replying. I did not remove it in the end, but there are some instructions in the Haynes manual which may help.
