Rear Bumper Removal with Pictures

I had been gathering info from many different posts to get enough info to remove my rear bumper cover on my 986 over the past few days. Now that it is completed I wanted to create an article with pictures that may help others having to do the same

Thanks for sharing. For some reason I thought it would be more involved than that, color me surprised!

Me too, and then I recently did a muffler swap and took off the bumper. I think the back is easier than the front. It was driving out the rivets and taking off the spoiler that scared me, but it turned out to be really easy.

In step 3, the screws you've identified as 4 mm hex are instead TORX screws. Allen wrench is wrong tool for these.
