Removal Of Rear Bumper On Classic

Just got a STi V2 1995. You can just see it if you look at "Users photo Gallery" under - Pick it up Tuesday.

Just noticed the rear bumper is in slightly on the nearside as if its been driven into or knocked slightly. No damage except the bumper is forward by about 10mm.

Does anyone know how to remove the rear bumper and are there any brackets i can bend back so when i refit it sits correctly. Its just bugging me more than anything everytime i wash it (which at the moment seems to be every 2 days)

Thanks in anticipation
95 STi V2

Never taken the rear bumper off m8 but if its like the front there might be 2 vertical flat metal brackets that give the corners some rigidity that make have been bent out of shape. You may have to remove the rear wheel liners to see them (if they exist).

Hope that helps and if not then im sure someone on here will have the experience to help more.

Should either be a few bolts from under the car or a few bolts inside the boot under the mat. Check the sides for screws around the wheel arches and you should be able to slide it out. If your really lucky just loosen them up and you'll be able to get enough adjustment in it to line it up again.
Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

sorry not got pics on yet, but removal is fairly simple, there are a few clips that are jus on the inside of the arch, 1 bolt in the centre underneath, and then the hardest bit, a row of clips along the top of the bumper which u'll b able to see if u pop the boot, hope helps if not let me know n al get them pics on for u m8
