Default 2006 Rear bumper cover removal

Does anyone know how to remove the rear bumper cover on a 2006 PT Cruiser (Touring edition to be specific)? I dented mine and need to repair it.

Thanks. But the circle with the 1 (bumper cover) is the part I'm trying to figure out. How do I remove it?

You have to remove the trim where the latch is. Then cut open the rubber patches covering the access holes to the bolts that the above picture shows.

(1) Open liftgate.
(2) Remove the rubber body plugs or mastic tape
patches, if equipped.
(3) Remove nuts attaching fascia to lower floor closure
(4) Raise vehicle on hoist.
(5) Disconnect license lamp.
(6) Remove splash shield from fascia in the wheel
opening area (below)
(7) Remove screws attaching fascia to lower quarter
(8) Remove fascia from vehicle.

(1) Hoist and support vehicle on safety stands.
(2) Remove front wheel.
(3) Remove push-in fasteners attaching splash
shield to frame rail forward of suspension
(4) Remove push in fasteners attaching splash
shield to frame rail rearward of suspension.
(5) Remove screws attaching wheelhouse splash
shield to front fender.
(6) Remove splash shield from vehicle.
