Try searching "bumper", and selecting the "search all posts" (not threads) parameter and also entering "APIDavid" in the member field too.

Then check the list of threads that show up.

Dave, reasonably recently, has mentioned in detail to another poster how to remove/fit bumpers...

Darc it easy mate.

Undo the obvious arch clips and number plate light, undo the rear bumper bar bolts under the car they go through the exhaust hanger in the one side

Gentle shuffle it out and remove all the hidden black clips, shuffle it back a bit not to fall off and the bumper will release.

Will put some pics up in a min.

Bumper bar bolts...

Shuffle it out...if it doesn't shuffle you missed an arch clip/bolt clearly the bumper edges bolt into the chassis/arch

On my MY04 STI I had to remove some of the boot lining to get to some bolts that held on the bumper. Don't know whether the classic is the same?

Nah classics is all external

Aye, basically arch clips and of course the tip of the bumper thats bolts to the car proper. Number plate lights and the hidden clips which are access by undoing the bumper bar

What you doing as if its a quick job I don't mind doing it for you

Cool. It's pretty easy, you'll get a feel for clip resistance if you miss one

I'm doing this exact job this week to fit my diffuser... saw those plastic clips in the nook where the top of the bumper tucks in under the bottom lip of the boot and was worries about how the heck to get them out.

So it doesnt seem like you need to worry about those? Just the corners and bolts underneith...

I'll have a crack on Tue, cheers Stu

Once you have the corners, one or two clips underneath the rear, and the bolts out, the whole unit slides out of the "chassis" legs. The clips you can see on top are just to hold the bumper skin onto the actual metal bumper bar. Don't fforget numberplate wiring connector as the bumper starts to move, disconnect it BEFORE it takes the weight of the bumper.

You can see the bumper BAR on the bottom pic, above, it's grey.
