How to Remove a 2001 Toyota Camry Rear Bumper
The rear bumper on a 2001 Toyota Camry will only need to be removed if it is damaged, or if you want to replace it with an aftermarket body kit. In either case, you must have a few simple tools and about 1/2 hour to remove the bumper. You may want to have an assistant help you hold the bumper while you remove it so that you do not crack it or damage it during the removal process.
