How to remove rear bumper cover

My car is 98 ES300

Thank you

1. Remove the bolts and screws at the wheel well next to the rear tires

2. Open up the trunk and you will see bolts attached to the cover at the corner spaces

3. Some models have bolts at the center of the trunk wall.

4. Once you got all the bolts out, you should be able to pull the cover up. In cases where they glued the center of the cover to the bumper wall, you will have to ply it out slowly.

Thanks for reply.

Do I need to remove tail light to pull the cover?

98 ES300

o . .yea. . forgot that too. remove those black covers/panels on the sides of the trunk by turning the two screws each side, and then open up the tail light panels. you will see the nuts and bolts holding the lights to the body.
