Took my rear bumper off. All looks ok bit of surface rust Very minor. However the centre crash bar with rusty bolts either end that is attached to the car behind the rear bumper is heavily rusted?

what is the part number and can you still buy that part?
Is it a nightmare to remove?

thank you

It may be a rear number plate bracket that is attached to the car.
I am not too sure. Any suggestions.

Thanks

is it the bracket thats only about a foot long and pretty much dead center in the rear panel? thats the number plate bracket. they commonly rust away to nothing. i just removed mine. my number plate is screwed into the bumper itself so there was no need for it

the crash bar is lower down and much longer, i believe they are aluminium because there wasnt a speck of rust on mine so i doubt this is the part you are talking about

Yes lads you are right! I will get it removed tomorrow that looks a right mess! So rusty!

The rear light metal brackets are a bit rusty but luckily notad bad as the number plate bracket.

Just an update.
What a difficult job.
Angle grinder worked a treat and was the only way it was going to be removed.
