If you can take the rear bar off, from waht I remember from there it's fairy simple - just remove all the bolts etc. They weigh s**t so if your not using it, it's definitely worth dumping the thing, imo.

Thanks for the help.

you pull the carpet up in the boot and there a couple grromets in each corner a bolt behind each one.
mud flaps and splash guards need to be undone, a 10mm bolt top corner behind wheels bit of a C*** to find, then should slip off and unclip, oh a couple rivets hold it next te tongue on a random looking piece of sheet matel.

towbar 8 bolts 3 either side t50 torx bits.
and to accessed under the spare wheel.
they bolt to a bracket you take out of your spare wheel well, and replace a couple grommets trhat are normall there.

If hayman reece a bit more involved and extra 3-4 bolts further foward, memorry vague on those though.

but honestly for the maybe 30kg, but I reckon more like 15 so it's f**k all, on that principal should ditch your passenger ways more, and generally lot less useful, and atleast your not f**k in a minor prang, mines save me a lot of headaches in long run, remember your not the only person on the road.
f**k only the day before a dumb b**ch shunted me. :twisted:
