Can you help me on how to fix my rear bumper

How to take it apart and fixing it to make it look better?

also the lights on the bumper don't work, pops out, and a wire is broke to one of them.

I would buy a new on but there $240 and up.

The bumper itself is pretty easy to get off. Get under it and you can see there are only two braces coming from the truck. Take them off at the bumper, that way its easier to work on the bumper. The plastic covers can be a bit of a pain. Just be careful and take your time with a good pair of pliers and they will come off. Once I had mine "naked," I just used a big hammer on the back side to beat the dents out. Not perfect, but it looked pretty decent. I used a wire brush and rust converter, then primer and paint. Good luck.

If you can't repair the wire to the lamps, you can purchase new lamps from Nissan.

Mine was the same way and fixed with a 2x4. Got it as flat as i could the smoothed it out with some evercoat 400. While i was at i painted the bumpers to match... Way better than the ugly grey. ::grin:: I wish i would have taken better pics of the the before, but that is all i have.
