Have a look here and in the 'how to' section there is a guide for removing the rear bumper.

WAAH!  :'(

 

I have bought some rear sensors for my Focus MK2.5 and, with the aid of the guide on this site, will install them next week.  Easy-peezy.  Ive seen the guide (http://www.fordowner...ors-focus-mk25/), checked everything on my car, and all looks VERY straight forward.

 

But, because I was doing some for my car, and needed to pay for the postage for delivery to me, I also went and asked my neighbour if he wanted some too (because they are a good buy, hes a man (so likes gadgets), and has a Focus Estate).   :oops:

Oops indeed!

 

I stupidly thought that the ease of installing the sensors on his car would be the same as mine.  However, having already convinced him and ordered, I then just looked at the back of his car and the Focus ESTATE MK 1 bumper is VERY different to my 5dr MK2.5. :iim:  And now Im afraid that it is not going to be so simple and he might refuse the sensors and I am left with an extra unwanted set.

 

So, my potential friends, could you give me any pointers and how to access the underside of the bumper please?  Because as I look at it at the moment there is a foam 'padding' type affair there.  (How do I get this out?).  Also on my bumper the innerside of the bumper has a manufacturer 'stamp' where factory fitted sensors would go making the positioning easy.  Does this MK1 bumper have the same (IF I can get that foam removed)?

 

I would look for any help you can give me chaps.  (Google isnt my friend in this instance, as it seems no one cares about guides for Estate cars).

The mk1 is best to put them into the back of the bumper, unless you go for the bottom black trim. It might be beneficial to find the best placement by using blue tack to set the gaps and when your happy drill a hole where the Blue tack is
