Rear bumper removal

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I just got a '97 boxster 3 months ago and decided to get a new exhaust. It says I need to take off the rear bumper/rear panel to access that area. Has anyone done this before and could explain it or give a link to someone who has?

Pictures of it would be nice to.

Thanks

Thanks alot. better instructions than the ones i found on the manufacturer's website after i posted this.

Which exhaust did you get? How does it sound? Did everything just bolt in easily? I'm considering doing the same thing, any word would be helpful.

Here are a few pics...

1. a picture of the bumperette removed and the hex bolt and mounting bracket.

2. a picture of the spoiler with the bracket removed and the hex bolt that holds the spoiler bracket in place.

3. a picture of the spoiler plugs with center bits or whatever they are called.

Its a Maxspeed-Motorsports

Sounds pretty good. Its loud and tough to get used to when driving far, but sounds real nice from down the street. Its deep in low rpm, but gets to a nice wail as you get up to speed in 2nd.

I read the instructions over and found out that taking the bumper off wouldn't be necessary after I looked under the car. Its just a tight fit to get a wrench and a ratchet on the front. Easy instalation after that. You don't see the big muffler underneath the car anymore, and the welds are real nice.

Here's the link to it on ebay:

Hope the link works

I am looking into the same exhaust for a '01 Boxster. Heard a lot of good things about it.

I will do the install myself and if I don't need to remove the bumper - that would be great!!!

Are you sure about it, tough? In the Maxspeed website they do recommend the bumper removal.

Do we have enough clearance with the bumbers on to remove the OEM and stick the new one in?

Thanks...All the best,

Gus
