Cayman R Rear Bumper Removal

Recommended Posts

Found a few tutorials of how to remove 987 rear bumpers but nothing specifically for an "R" Have a respray booked and PPF to sort out gravel rash.

Normally the rear wing is extended and the torx screws underneath are removed.

There is a non moving filler panel there, does it come off somehow?

Your right all off now.

Just wanted to be prepared for any problems.

Car done 24000 miles and the rear arches show primer as the stones have worn all the paint away !

My rear bumper (Not an 'R' mind) ; at the underneath / rear of the arches on the sides was the same at 40k.  Looked a completely matt finish (May have even been down to undercoat in places - certainly not a lot of lacquer left there !).

 

I'm guessing this is down to fat rear tyres and also airflow - throwing / sucking dust and road debris back up. It literally looked like it had been 'sand-blasted' in that area.

 

Good luck !

Yeah mine is pretty shot blasted after 11 years.

Would have been better to be black plastic under there and body colour a bit higher up.

Even PPF would get pretty ripped down there.
