Re: 1998 Megane Cabrio rear bumper replacement

Hi there.

After looking at a few images I do not see any difference in size, and from that, I would believe the mounting points to be the same.

I would give the following advice;
  • use the new bumper to help identify the mounting points (and what type of fixings used)
  • Raise the rear of the car on ramps (or secure axle stands), makes reaching all these points easier
  • place a duvet or old carpet under the bumper to catch it - if a gust of wind happens or someone loses grip
Hope this helps.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
