1)Purchase new bumper cover wing (wrap around) mounting rails and hardware 2) Open trunk and remove liner left and right to gain access to mounting hardware 3) Remove taillight harness left and right 4) Remove taillights (left and right) These are sealed and will require very careful prying away from body. Work slowly and allow the adhesive to release. 5)Completely remove the bumper cover push locks (2) beneath each taillight 6) Examine inner fender (inside trunk) for (2) bumper cover wing mounting bolts on left and right sides. Loosen but do not remove (inner bolt on passenger side is behind the jack assembly). Apply penetrating oil as necessary to loosen. NOTE: these bolts are often rusted badly and WILL break. Hence the need to purchase new mounting rails before starting work. 7) Carefully pry rear side marker assemblies from vehicle and remove wiring harness. Pry carefully from the rear. 8) Remove (2) mounting bolts beneath left and right bumper cover wings (fender) may be rusted and require vise grips and some force to pull out. 9) Remove (1) mounting behind each rear wheel (upper end of bumper cover wing) 10) Remove bumper cover corner bolts below and toward the outside corner of left and right taillight 11) Carefully remove the bumper cover wing bolts previously loosened inside the fender. Don't worry if they break, you have new hardware. 12) Carefully pull bumper cover toward the rear to free it from the vehicle. 13) Installation is the reverse of this procedure.

How do you remove rear bumper on 2002 montero sport?

I just did this last night on mine. There is a plastic cover on the top of the bumper. You have to remove that to get to the bolts underneath it. Its a real pain to remove it without breaking that plastic cover you have to crawl underneath it and squeeze the plastic clips together one at a time. After you remove that, you can remove the bolts under it. There are more in other places, but I forget where, I'd have to go look again.

How do you remove the headlight assembly on a 2002 s60 Volvo?

First you need to remove the bumper. For that you need to remove bumper cover moldings. Once you remove those you will see two bolts (12mm) that you will need to remove. After you remove them, you need to remove two (T25) screws that are located under cover fender one on each side towards the end of bumpers. To do that you need to unscrew each of them about 1/2" each and then push back in. After that, you need to remove 6 plastic clips that are located on top of the bumper. They are removed by pressing the button that is in the center of each clip. Now to remove the bumper just pull it towards yourself. Once you will do that you will figure out what to do next in order to take off the headlamps.
