-remove the rear spoiler(has to be done to access 3 screws)

--raise the rear spoiler manually,open the rear trunk

--push in center part the three rivets on the back of the spoiler

--pull out the rivets after they are free and loosened

--Pull the rear spoiler cover(painted part) backwards off of the rear spoiler itself

--release the two allen bolts located on the inner section of the rear spoiler

--Pull the spoiler off

-remove the bumper

--remove the bumperettes

--remove the three screws that are visible after removing the rear spoiler

--remove 1 screw from the inner wheels well/per side

--remove the 3 screws from the bottom section of the rear spoiler/per side

--remove the 2 screws from the license plate housing/per side

--feed the license plate lights through the bumper

--remove the bumper

it's not hard.
