Easy as 2 screws holding to the rear fender well (each side)

2 bolts inside (gold color acorn looking) under the rear tail lights you must remove plastic covers

2 simular bolts under the rear

2 screws on each side of the wheel well + 4 flat head phillips that attach onto the metal bumper. usually ceased up beyond PB Blaster help. Or you could ripit off by accident like I did with a tow chain...works wonders!!!lol

yes PB blaster is a miracle in a can, but it doesn't break away bolts that have completly fused together from rust. Sometimes bolts are more likely to strip their head or break off completley! Depending on where you live, those bumper screws on top could be a complet biotch!!
