    im having my rear diffuser painted soon and need to take it off for it to be painted, how do the diffuser come off and would it be easier to remove the bumper too if so how does the rear bumper come off thanks

    youve got to remove the rear bumper and then the defuser clips out, it might be a bit stiff so go careful but use a flat head screw divers to push on the clips from the backside

                            i took mine off without removing the rear bumper on both my astras. used to strip and fit cars all day long for a living aswell as painting at a bodyshop.
                            if you use a flat head screwdriver, and push the clips the right way, they pop off piece of p1ss. theyre stiff but like i say push the clips the right way if your still having troubles

                              Same way i did mine, bumper doesnt have to be touched
