Removal of Supplementary Bumper Pieces

Recommended Posts

Does any one know how to remove the two extra bumper pieces to each side of license plate on back bumper? I do not wish to damage them so I can reinstall later. I have looked under car - nothing obvious how to take off. European models do not have these. I want to add an extension plate to mount car badges to either side of license. Thanks for help. Car is US 2005 Carrera S.

You have to remove the rear bumper cover then from the back side push in the pins and clips.

This is just a thought, because I have never been a fan of the two bumper butts on my 997S either, the holes left by removal of the two pieces would be ugly also. The most important issue is liability. If you get rear ended ( what a thought ! ) even if it is just a bumper tap, the guilty party could argue that you have modified the bumper / safety equipment and more damage occurred than would have otherwise, any personal injury dollars would be modified also. You'd be out of luck collecting anything on your present scratch free rear bumper. I'm not an attorney, but I have been rear ended before and it's a battle from the get-go. No sense making it more difficult than it already is. Enjoy " le' machine" they are a kick!
