Is this a Euro or US type bumper?

Euro has all 4 attachments in trunk - two bolts for sides and two nuts for back. Take those off and the bumper comes off.

Hi this has the US bumpers. There appears to be a "box" covering the side bolts when approaching from the underneath. Do you need to remove the panels in the trunk for access?

The rear bumper sides are held by a bolt that you access in the trunk. You will need to pull the side carpeting on the left /drivers side to get to it. On the right/passenger side it is next to and below the battery .
