How do I remove My Rear Bumper?

Hey, I just recently sold my rear bumper to 7thgenman... I am going to be taking it off this weekend. I have taken off the front bumper before, and know that it is cake. But I have never removed my rear bumper...
Has anyone done this before? It is the stock rear bumper?

How hard is it?

Thanks guys!

Never done it, but looks very similar to the front from the pics in the service manual. There are:
1. 2 horizontal bolts under caps hidden by the back of the trunk
2. 1 vertical screw at top corner of each side
3. 1 hirozontal screw near top corner of each side
4. 2 vertical plastic pop clips at rear underside
5. then pull sides out and back out similar to front bumper

I'd scan for you but our scanner is broken. Hope this helps.

on a sedan theres two bolts 10 mm hidden behind black tabs on each side of the taillights on the inside pop the trunk and you'll see it then there is and phillips screw on each side where the bumpers ends on the point under the rear wheel wells. and there black plastic pop tabs under the bumper just use a flat scrediver to pop em out then you just start on one end and start snapping off . is no that hard took me about ten minutes first time

Not hard, Forgive me if I skip a step. u've got a screw inside the wheel well in the back, take those off. Then you have the 2 on the rim of the trunk, not actually on the trunk, but on the rims right next to the tail light, take those off. I believe there is like 3 clips under the bumper to remove as well. I forget if you have to remove those things by the tail lights. Sorry this is a lame *** post before my class, but I figured I'd try to help.

Thanks a lot for the replies guys...
So basically it sounds like it isnt going to be any harder then the front bumper, which is cake!
