    Need help removing the rear bumper.
    Someone rear ended me pushed the rear bumper up a bit.
    No visual signs of damage except that looks like rear bumper was pushed
    up such that both side of rear bumper popped out of their plastic
    retainers.

    Can anyone with shop manual help me out?
    Need instructions on how to remove the rear bumper so that I can put it
    back correctly.

    Much appreciated!

    Mine is scratched too. I'd like to take it off to paint it. I looked at it real good and it looks pretty easy. Maybe. Remove the top screws on the trunk valence edge and the million clips along the bottom edge. Post how it goes please.

    I am posting the rear bumper cover exploded parts diagram just so that you can see the magnitude of the job. If you decide to take on the task, may I suggest that you subscribe to techinfo.toyota.com so that Toyota can make $10, and you can download the disassembly instructions plus all sort of other technical info.
