Honda Civic Rear Bumper Replacement: A Step-by-Step Guide

In this video, we will demonstrate the step-by-step process of removing the rear bumper cover on a Honda Civic. This process can be completed with simple tools and a little bit of patience.

To begin, open the trunk of the vehicle. Inside the trunk, there are covers located on the inside of the tail light that need to be removed to access the bolt underneath the bumper.

Using a plastic pry tool or a screwdriver, carefully remove the covers without causing any damage to the vehicle. Once the covers are off, remove the bolts using a 10-millimeter socket.

Moving to the side of the bumper, locate and remove the Phillips screws that secure it to the quarter panel. It’s important to take precaution when removing these screws to avoid stripping them or causing any damage to the bumper.

After removing the screws on the side, gently pull the bumper away from the car and use the plastic pry tool to disconnect the bumper from the spacer. Work your way around the bumper, snapping it loose from the spacer and releasing it from the vehicle.

Underneath the bumper, there is another Phillips screw at the end, as well as bumper clips that need to be taken out. These clips can be removed using a clip tool or a flathead screwdriver.

Once all the screws and clips are removed, carefully pull the bumper cover away from the car, starting from each side and pulling directly back.

If you need guidance on how to reattach the bumper, a separate video is available for that process.
