2014 Countryman SAll4 rear bumper removal

Hi there, my wife recently bought a 2014 Countryman SAll4. I want to install a rear camera. The camera I have is a license frame kit I was using in her prior car, and it plugs into a clip-on rear view mirror. Works very well.

I'm having trouble getting the wires into the back of the car, I need to remove the rear bumper to see what is back there. I've searched here and all over the web for instructions on removing the rear bumper.

Anyone have anything you can share?

Have you looked for tow hitch/receiver installations which would probably include bumper removal instructions?

The ones I have seen on-line from the US for the R56 cover bumper removal, so the Countryman ones probably would too.

Found some; etrailer Countryman hitch installation instructions

I did mine by removing anything that looked like a fastener until it came loose.
