R75 & MG ZT rear bumper removal and sensors.

Earlier this year I decided to change my rear bumper for one which had the sensors fitted below is a pictorial of removal and re-fitting.

There are four fixing points under the bumper two centre and one each end at the rear wheels

The bumper I removed did not have sensors this being the reason for removing, to be changed for one that as sensors fitted. Fig 17
