    HOW TO 2016.5 : Eliminate "denting" rear bumper.

    If it bothers you, a pretty simple fix to eliminate "dents" when kneeing into the rear lower valance while loading or unloading cargo.
    Cut a 1/2" piece of self-sealing closed cell pipe insulation to 19". Fold it on itself.
    Wedge it between the the "real" bumper and the back side of the valance.
    You can also shim either end but you essentially need 3 plies 7" each. This will probably work for other years, and perhaps other models as well.
    Problem solved.
