Clio 2 rear bumper removal hint

Posting for the benefit of anyone else who may be following the instructions in their Haynes manual to remove their rear bumper. Don't try to remove the wheel arch liner where it attached to the inner arch as by now the studs will have rusted solid and will twist off with the nut. Leave the liner attached to the inner arch and just unscrew the two self tapping screws from the bumper and the bumper can easily removed as per the remaining instructions.
Picture shows the repaired studs that I drilled and replaced with screws.

I had a similar problem removing the n/s bolt holding the inner wheel arch which sheared when I tried to remove it. However, I just drilled the bolt out and fitted a plastic rivet (the type you use for fitting body trim/carpets etc. Simples!!
