    can anyone explain how to access the upper 4 nuts holding bumper on.

    they seem to be hidden behind the truck floor.

    manual seems of no help.

    Discovered the answer....

    the 2 low nuts on each side = easy, you can see them.

    the upper/outer nut is just visible when you stick your head into the space where the muffler(silencer) box was.
    spanner + patience = solved

    Now the mystery of the upper/inner nut.
    • Open the boot
    • remove the cover over the rear lights
    • remove the leather trim along the lower rear edge of boot
    • lift carpet
    • note that the floor of the boot is covered in a 1/4"thick foam
    • now look for the bulge in the floor panel just below the rear light cluster
    • peal back the foam to reveal a rubber grommet sealed in place with some black sealant.
    • remove the grommet to reveal....... the mystery missing nut

    Photos will follow shortly
