Hi there,

On the bumper there are 2 screws each side of the bumper holding it into the wheel arch. Then behind the bumper there are 4 nuts you have to undo. These are not easy to get to. These are located as 2 each side, in line with the part in between the headlight and grill really. Once these are undone it just pulls off.

They are a bit of a sod to get to, but you just need a bit of persistance.

Sorry I know this is a 5 year old thread but I assume the bumper on an escort 55 van would likely be the same? Also, does anyone know if these are interchangeable with car bumpers or are they specific to the van variant. Many thanks in advance, I have just bought an old van for work as my pajero blew its head gasket last weekend & I could do with getting it off and sorted as soon as poss as it looks like I've just been involved in a 80 car pile up!!

2001, I reckon you're probably right, just wondered before I spend ages looking for fixings that exist on the car but not on the van! I get the feeling when the van was crashed and repaired (badly with duct tape!!) the bolts were never replaced anyway as it's really loose. Thanks tho, will look later once I've picked up replacement from fleabay.

I'm pretty sure it's a straight swap as I'm planning on changing my bumper to a white one when I get time

Just seen a white one on Fleabay (http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2a3bc688e1) not sure if a car variant bumper would fit but a £25 it's a steal!
