lift the boot carpet... and either side of the chassis member you will see 4 rubber grommets... pop them off to reveal 4 large bolts... undo them completly....
Then just side the wheel arch behind the rear tyre you will find a bracket that has a screw holding up the corners of the bumper where it meets the wheel arch... undo the screws and the corners will drop down and should be able to slide the rear bumper off.. (standing at the back of the car gently pulling the rear bar backwards)...

My 95 EF Futura was a massive pain the a*** to switch bumpers on.

All of the mounting points are easily identified as you work your way around, though. If it's not coming off pretty easily, you've missed one.

at the sides of the boot there should be a step up on either side.
on the side of where it steps up there should be the rubber gromets.

also worth mentioning there is often a couple of rivets holding the bottom of the rear bar to to wheel well.
