Re: How do you remove tailgate and rear bumper?

Hi all,

Thought I'd pop a few pictures on here as today being my day off, I took the rear bumper off (have another day off on Thursday and will be fitting the bumper then...)

Just need to pull the boot out to follow the line of the plastic insert....have a look at the pictures and you'll see what I mean.

I have taken the plastic interior trim off the other side of the boot and there is a hole I can get a hammer in but really don't want to crack the paint....Am just wondering if there is anything that can be done by using a G-Clamp or something so that as I rotate it it slowly pushes the metal back into the correct shape...

Excuse the filth on the back of it....I've just had the turbo replaced and had taken it for a run to try and burn the oil off that was dumped in the exhaust...

Let me know what you think....
