    yep, done mine last thursday..

    to remove the bumper..

    remove the screws from the rear of the wheelarch liners..both sides..

    remove two 'hidden' screws from up by the number plate lights..

    next remove the light clusters..this exposes some slide in clips..

    now the tricky bit, it requires some bottle.. the sides of the bumpers are only clipped into a groove..you just have to put your hand up behind the bumper and push the top edge out. it will let go with a crack.. the same moulding is in the boot aperture..release the clips that were hidden by the lights and the pull the bumper out of the groove below the boot aperture..this will also crack out..

    remove the wires to the numberplate lights..

    lift bumper clear..


    hope the above makes sense..

    Coachman Amara 520/4,

    I also tow with my Zafira as well, but the Vectra with it's re-map is just awesome at towing now so it is the main towcar from now on.

    Cheers buddy I will. this is our second Coachman, in August 2004 we bought a brand new 2004 Amara 500/5 which we really liked but I hated the bathroom.

    So we just bought a month ago a new 520/4, it is the 2005 model but new. Did'nt want the 2006 model as the new blue graphics would not match our awning, where the 2005 does!!

    I can't beleive I just admitted that

    But our dealer had two new 05 models left so we snapped one up!!!
