earthwormjim is an unknown quantity at this point
I can't for the life of me get the damn rear bumper cover off of my car. I removed, as far as I can see, all of the clips holding it on. The right side slides off easily, but the damn left side is really on there. I got all the clips under the moldings, underneath the cover, and the two in the wheel wells. Why the hell won't it come off?

I already read the DIY in the E36 DIY page but that didn't help at all. I followed the directions exactly but it won't come off.

the bumper is held on place by the side plastic fender covers and on the rear by two large nuts that go trough the bumper and the bumper shock.
to get this screws out you need to remove the plastic trim that is on top of the exaust, then law on the floor, put your head under the car and you see a two black metal thing coming form the body of the car toward the bumper, there is a big torx screw there.. it might be frozedn so you might need a couple of trials..

hope this helps..
