I read through a bunch of posts on this topic, but didn't find the answer to this question.

How were the rear bumper guard holes plugged from Ford? I see that some people suggest Ford used the regular black rubber hole plugs. If so, did the plug get inserted from inside the trunk area, or from the outside, behind the bumper?

It seems like installing the plugs from outside would make more sense.

Better be careful inhaling those outside wood plugs!:eek: lol. Seems to me installed from the outside would make sense. I personally used a round cap head screw, two rubber washers, two metal washers and a lock nut to seal mine up against exhaust fumes. kip

From my experience Ford would just fill the hole with "dum-dum" and call it a day....

In layman's terms, "dum-dum" equals "3M Strip Caulk".
I thought I had read that was the technique Ford used, but wasn't sure. Thanks for confirming!
