    Sorry for highjacking the thread, but I just got a Cupra R bumper, are the guides different to the facelift Cupra bumper?

    Checked this thread as I recently needed to take the rear bumper off but couldn't find any info.

    It's not too bad but I'd advise having a second person. Simply undo the torx screws at the rear of the rear wheel arch, it's where the arch liner connects to the bumper. Then get underneath the car and you'll see maybe 5 torx screws again on each side. After that you need to get into the boot, pull away the central cover and I think the two covers on the side and find 4 bolts that are holding the bumper on.

    Once all that's done the bumper with a little bit of effort should slide out but this is where you need the second person as it would be very easy to scratch your car up.

    Also, when putting the bumper back, the top part has to go over a certain fixture, if it doesn't it won't fit properly if at all. There's a bit on the upper part before it reaches the tyre that could easily be forgotten which if you do, the bumper won't go back all the way.

    Apologies for the vagueness, this was done 4 days ago and just going by memory. It wasn't even me that was taking it off, it was a mate that was doing things to my car and I was just a helping hand.

    I'm in the process of fitting the LCR bumpers and skirts to my mk1 TDI. Mine are currently in the body shop getting painted, but I did a test fit first to make sure I had everything I needed.

    To remove the rear bumper, it's pretty straight forward. You need to remove the centre interior rear panel trim, be careful that you don't drop the large round fastenings under the spare wheel.

    Next remove the two interior panels on either side of panel you have just removed, it's a couple of cross heads screws then a good yank to release the clips.

    This will reveal two 10mm headed rag bolts and either side, so four in total, remove them.

    Next, get your T20 torx out as there are a boat load all around the inner arches and at the bottom of the bumper.

    Remove all these and the bumper, should be then released from it side mounting and come off fairly easily.


    As for the side skirts, mine came with all the fixing, but I am a little reluctant to drill into the sills, as I may revert the car back to standard.

    I found during the test fit that the skirts fit fairly snug to the sills and the bottom and end mounts would suffiently secure them. All I am going to to is bond the skirts to the sill.

    I've got my bumpers, inserts, fogs and brackets. Once it all arrives I'll start a thread on how I fit it :)
