Having problems with your Hyundai Sonata ?
How do I remove the rear bumper on a 2003 hyundai sonata
You have to remove four screws near the center of the rear bumper that are visible when you open the trunk. Then remove the inside upholstery cover for each rear tail light and then remove the four brass bolts that hold each rear tail light assembly. Unhook the wiring harness so the tail light assembly can be removed and laid aside. Then remove the two screws on each side which were covered by the bottom of the tail lights. Next, remove some of the upholestry retaining pins close to the rear tailights so you can access the spcae behind them. You need to remove two brass nuts close to the outer aspect of where the tailights are located and two screws that are located several inches farther forward that are holding the more frontal aspect of the rear bumper on each side. Finally, remove two retaining screws at the bottom of the most forward aspect of the bumper (wheel well) and one at the top of the most forward aspect of the bumper and you should now be able to remove it! Hope this helps! John in Lexington
