The biggest risk in reparing fire damaged vehicles is the possibility of wire damage. The smallest damage to wiring could cause a short in an entire circuit. Before installing any new parts you will want to inspect all of the wiring in the vicinity. Once the wiring has been checked and, if needed, repaired you can move on to the bumper cover. These are relatively easy to replace as there are only a few bolts attaching them. Raise and support the vehicle for easier access. First remove the tail lamp assemblies. You can reach the mounting bolts for the tail lamps by raising the trunk and removing any trim / carpet covering the area. Once the tail lamps are removed you can unbolt the fasteners underneath the rear bumper that attach the top of the bumper cover to the rest of the vehicle.
