rear bumper 460 1990 (dis)mounting

Post by arnaud » Sun Dec 13, 2009 6:36 am

Dear people,
Our recently purchased 460 automatic tries to get rid of its rear bumper.
The left side is hanging loose.
From beneath, i cannot see how it is, or should be mounted. But i can see the stud/bracket where i think it is supposed to be mounted on, but do not see the possibility how..
I can try gleuing but now it is too cold to harden..
Maybe first the plastic stuff has to be removed to acces a mounting thingy?
Is there a way to remove the plastic without breaking it apart like some people already have done, as can be seen by the broken plastic 'clips'?

Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site.

This is the only information I have on the rear bumper removal for the 400 series.

Unfortunately it isn't too clear in the .pdf but if you have any further questions on it feel free to ask.

Look like a total other car..
Can anyone tell me what 'wheel arc liners' are??
Also, i cannot see how the bumper is attached to the car.
I guess it will be a case of clipping away the plastic rubbish an get the welding device outside..

That information is for the '90 460 and came from the Volvo Aftersales Diagnostics and Information System (VADIS). Unfortunately, the diagrams aren't very clear so I am trying to find something better.

In the meantime to remove the bumper you need to remove the wheel arch liners (see below). The bumper is held in place by 4 x nuts, 2 underneath the car and 2 in the boot. The bumper comes off complete and the later instructions are for dismantling the plastic cover from the metal member.

"Wheel arch liners" are the plastic liners in the wings or mudguards of the car. They are there to prevent a build-up of dirt/water on the metal parts of the wings.

This attachment has the parts list for front and rear bumpers which may make it clearer for you. Page 4 shows the wheel arch liner at part #1.
