how to remove the bumprettes


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know how the rear bumprettes are removed off the bumper cover (the pieces on either side of the license plate). I believe they snap in since the right one has a tow hook behind it?

any help is appreciated

Sam:

There is an Allen-head bolt that you can access from under each bumperette, through the small cut-out that you will see there.

Once you loosen that bolt, you can just pivot the bumperette up and off.

Take a look at post #4 in this thread for photos of the inside of the bumperettes, as that should help orient you: http://www.renntech....__1#entry184376

Regards, Maurice.

Edit: Sorry, I should have prefaced this with "If bumperettes on the 997-1 is the same as on the 986..."

On US/Canada 997-1 cars the bumperettes are held on by tabs and pins that you can only get to from the back side of the bumper.

Thanks Loren,

So I will need the bumper off to remove them?

I have a few scratches on one, was wondering if I could just take it off to drop off to a body shop but I guess it will be easier to get repaired on the car than off it.

+ great job on the update of the site Loren, have been absent for a while but love the work.
