rear bumper removal????

I am trying to remove the rear bumper from my 1990 325iC cabrio (steel style/Diving board) and I can't seem to get the damn thing off! On the drivers side I can see where the bumper support mounts to the bumper and getting to those bolts shouldn't be too difficult but the problem is on the passenger side of the car. I can only see one bolt for the bumper mount?? it looks like the other side is totally not accessable. I don't know if anyone knows how to remove this style bumper but if you do, please let me know!!!
