How To Remove Ford Fusion Rear Bumper Cover - Second Gen (2013+)

In this guide we have the new generation Ford Fusion and the steps below will walk you through removing the rear bumper. Some tools that you will need for this job include the flat head screwdriver, ratchet and socket, and a plastic trim removal tool so that you can pop the rear taillight out.

The Steps

1. Open the trunk and peel back the trunk liner. You will see the two taillight nuts that you will have to unscrew. ford fusion trunk liner

2. The back of the taillight is clipped into place. You can't really grab it with your hand so instead you will need to insert a plastic trim removal tool and pop the light out of the clip. ford fusion taillight removal

I have a 2014 Fusion. My car was rear ended lightly. They removed the bumper and taillight and put new ones on. When I got it back it was damp to the touch where the trunk and carpet are and other places on the floor. In your opinion, if you leave the tail lights and the bumper off and it rains will the rain get into the trunk area?
