I managed to get the rear bumper off my V70 in order to install a reversing sensor kit.

Instructions on the net are generally spot on:

- remove the horizontal bolts (3 or 4) from inside the boot, after removing the battery (negative comes off first)
- remove the hex screws in each wheel arch (one on each side)
- drill out the rivets underneath (one on each side)

I would upload a photo but I can't figure this out.

I also managed to drill out a few extra rivets - needlessly. I have now replaced them with stainless steel bolts and washers.
Watch out you don't drop the internal bolts into the inside of the rear bumper. I had to magnetise an allen key and retrieve one of them...
