Cutting a bumper?

Am just about to fit a tow bar to my 2005 Grand Scenic and the instructions say I may need to cut a small section off the bumper.

What's the best way to cut the bumper - is it to use a simple Hacksaw?

Many thanks,

err... not really, a dremmel is best, though you need practice and good planning to get it to look good on the first attempt.
and it wont help that the angle you look at it and the angle you cut are completely different, so what looks good from up close and underneath wont once its back on the car.

Re: Cutting a bumper?

we use a really fine juniour hack saw with as many teeth per inchas you can get to cut the bumpers. but always cover the paint side in masking tape first this helps you to mark out and also helps the paint from flaking away from the bumper. also we have a guy at work who uses a hot peice of wire stuck in his soldering iron we laugh at him but it works really well and looks pretty neat as the edge is smooth and dosnt need sanding.
